Borat Sued For Being A British Man Abroad

SUING BORAT: “NEW YORK (Reuters) – The creators of the hit film “Borat” were sued again on Tuesday, this time by a driving instructor seen in the comedy admonishing the fake Kazakh reporter for yelling insults at other drivers.”

Michael Psenicska was duped into participating in the film after it was described to him as a “documentary about the integration of foreign people into the American way of life,” he said in a lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court.

The suit named British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, who plays the title role, One America Productions and Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp., a unit of News Corp. It also named Todd Lewis, a representative of One America who is listed in other lawsuits as Todd Lewis Schulman.

Psenicska said he was paid $500 in cash to give Borat a driving lesson. He described the experience as “surreal,” saying Cohen drove erratically down residential streets, drank alcohol and yelled to a female pedestrian he would pay her $10 for “sexy time.”

He’s British. It’s how we behave when abroad…
