Borat Issues Statement About Controversial Rudy Giuliani Scene In Subsequent Moviefilm
| Last updated
You see, in one scene of the film, the former New York Mayor was caught in what appears to be a compromising position with an actor playing Borat's daughter.
Let's just leave it at that for now, the guy is a lawyer, after all.
Anyway, Giuliani has since described the scene as 'completely fabricated' on social media and received support from a number of his Republican party colleagues.
Now, he's received support from the fictional man who was purported to be behind the whole thing, Borat himself.
On the official account for Borat, the comedian - in full get-up - issued a defence of the man he refers to as 'America's Mayor'.
It's pretty damn surreal, but I think we can all get the subtext.
He said: "I am here to defend America's mayor, Rudolph Giuliani. What was an innocent sexy time encounter between a consenting man and my 15-year-old daughter has been turned into something disgusting by the fake news media,
"I warn you, anyone else try this and Rudolph will not hesitate to reach into his legal briefs and whip out his subpoenas."
Speaking about the footage, Giuliani has said: "The Borat video is a complete fabrication. I was tucking in my shirt after taking off the recording equipment.
"At no time before, during, or after the interview was I ever inappropriate. If Sacha Baron Cohen implies otherwise he is a stone-cold liar."
So, in the film, Giuliani - who is US President Donald Trump's personal lawyer - can be seen reaching towards his trousers whilst reclining on a bed in the presence of an actor who is playing the role of Borat's daughter, and posing as a TV journalist.
When the actor removed his microphone, he could be seen fiddling with his shirt and trousers, before Borat enters the room and says: "She's 15. She's too old for you."
Obviously, it bears repeating once again that the former politician denies any impropriety whatsoever.
He told the New York Post: "This guy comes running in, wearing a crazy, what I would say was a pink transgender outfit,
"It was a pink bikini, with lace, underneath a translucent mesh top, it looked absurd. He had the beard, bare legs, and wasn't what I would call distractingly attractive.
"This person comes in yelling and screaming, and I thought this must be a scam or a shakedown, so I reported it to the police. He then ran away,
He continued: "I only later realised it must have been Sacha Baron Cohen. I thought about all the people he previously fooled and I felt good about myself because he didn't get me."
Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm is out today through Amazon Studios.
