Bruno cuts Jackson

BRUNO In the upcoming BRUNO, Sacha Baron Cohen as the titular gay fashion reporter talks to LaToya Jackson and, of course, asks snide questions about her controversial brother. With the shocking death of Michael Jackson, however, Cohen, BRUNO director Larry Charles and Universal felt it was best to cut the scene from the film before its LA premiere. As for when the film premieres nationally on July 10th? Charles had this to say, "We decided to take it out for tonight, and we'll reassess before the release whether to keep it out." Cutting the scene from every print could prove to be a tough and expensive process but keeping it in could also affect its box office performance with people being understandably put off by it in the wake of what's happened. What do you guys think? Should it stay in?

Extra Tidbit: The film's fake working title "Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Males Visibly Uncomfortable in the Presence of a Gay Foreigner in a Mesh T-Shirt" is still awesome.
