Bruno death threat

07.30.2009

Remember how that one time, in BRUNO, Sacha Baron Cohen went to the Middle East and begged a terrorist to kidnap him? Well, as it turns out, the other members of Al Aksa Martyrs’ Brigades didn’t take too kindly to being associated with all things flamboyant and leopard printed, and they have some ideas about just how Cohen should be punished for his insolence

A spokesman for the group just came out with this statement, which caused Cohen to up his security detail immediately. “We reserve the right to respond in the way we find suitable against this man. The movie was part of a conspiracy against the Al Aksa Martyrs’ Brigades.”

BRUNO was a lot of things, but that it was a conspiracy against the Al Aksa Martyrs’ Brigades seems low on the likely spectrum. In fact, they should be happy for the press, as I doubt the AAMB was getting much public attention before the film. Now I’m sure they’re on at least a dozen different watch lists!

Extra Tidbit: Did anyone else think Bruno’s Middle East trip was the least funny part of the movie? And without a doubt it took the most effort to film.

Huh.

So, you guys think if sasha cohen get murdered because of this, will it be funny?

I mean, come on. To these people the bad press of killing a comedian that mocked them would be a positive thing. I hope Cohen has good security to watch his family and his pretty red headed wife.

A "conspiracy?" Maybe they should actually see the film before launching a jihad. Dumbasses.

They made a Bruno movie?

Sasha can pound it, he's not funny. But he does have some pretty big nuts, I'll give him that.

Haven't seen Bruno, but in a way I salute Cohen for having the guts to do his thing over in the West Bank. I still think the man's a genius, and I hope they come to their senses regarding him. But also he needs to do something a little more original than poking fun at gays and homophobia in the most extreme way possible, which probably says more about him than about homophobia.

This guy has huge cojones -- but may not for too much longer. Even Bill Maher brought it down a few notches in Religulous when he touched down in the Middle East. They're called extremists for a reason.

No doubt they're a bunch of bad dudes, but I watch CNN religiously and read the news every day, and I'd never heard of them before Bruno. Guess I've missed the AAMB boat.
