Sacha Baron Cohen Flees After Being Called Out by Gun Store Owner

Sacha Baron Cohen

Norris Sweidan, owner of Warrior One Guns & Ammo, told Fox 11 that a man he recognized as Cohen, and a camera crew came into his store claiming that they were filming a documentary about a Hungarian immigrant wanting to buy a gun.

"I just kept looking at the guy, and I was like, 'You're Borat, '" Sweidan said.

"The moment his words came out of his mouth, I was like, 'This guy's full of s**t, '" Sweidan said.

Warrior One Guns & Ammo owner Norris Sweidan called out Cohen for trying to trick him. "Sadly for me, I'm sure I'm going to be in whatever insane film finally comes out, looking really stupid and, just as sadly, I'll probably be in good company".

"We're talking to the people they don't wanna give us an answer, we basically told them to get the f*** out, you guys are all full of s***, have a great day, get out", Sweidan said. Gun owners? The gun business? The first episode, which aired last week, featured a segment where Cohen got a number of gun advocates and Republican lawmakers to advocate for children as young as three to carry firearms in school.

"Once I knew it was Borat, we already know his game and his bulls**t, so we knew he was here to make a mockery".

Sweidan had no time for this ridiculous behavior from gun activists.

Thai Boys and Soccer Coach Released From Hospital
Flash floods had made it almost impossible for the team to escape the cave. "We kept drinking water to fill our belly". Despite sharing one large hospital room during their stay, they left the hospital in batches.

Van Cleave wrote on the Virginia Citizens Defense League's Facebook page in April that he suspected he'd been duped by "someone like Michael Moore, or, even worse, a Sacha Baron Cohen-esq "Borat"-type of shock comedy meant to be devastatingly embarrassing and humiliating to the victim in the crosshairs". "If you're a gun advocate, what the f-k are you doing holding a gun with a bunny on it?"

He added to KTTV that he believes Cohen targeted his store because it's well known and putting together its own program, "Down the Barrel".

Last week, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin said she was tricked by Cohen, whom she says was heavily disguised as a wounded veteran, into an interview.

"You've got some gun advocate holding a bunny on a gun?" Showtime also noted that Baron Cohen did not appear in a wheelchair.

When reached by Deadline, Showtime said it had no comment on the report. "We'll give you a real story".

According to Fox News, 'Who is America?' debuted to just 315,000 viewers among the key demographic age of 18-49; a total catastrophe for Showtime who have been embroiled in controversy regarding Cohen's content.
