Dharma and … Borat? A 'Victim' Complains
APSacha Baron CohenSacha Baron Cohen
’s "Borat" may be the funniest movie made in a long, long time. But one person is definitely not laughing: TV news producer Dharma Arthur
Arthur, 50, is claiming that Cohen’s antics during the shooting of his crazy movie cost her her job — and maybe worse.
Audiences who’ve seen the movie have noted an episode where Borat visits a live noon news show on WAPT in Jackson, Miss. While on the air, Cohen, posing as the Kazakh news correspondent, wreaks havoc with anchor Brad McMullan
and weather guy Ken Johnson
He makes sexual and scatological references, kisses Brad and stands up during the interview so that he’s out of frame. Once red-faced McMullan cuts the segment short, Borat then wanders into and disrupts Johnson’s live weather report.
