Embarrassed Woman Deserves to Win Lawsuit Against Borat — NOT!
October 25, 2007 | Pop Culture
An Alabama etiquette expert has become the latest Borat “star” to make herself look even more stupid by suing Sacha Baron Cohen for the way she was portrayed in the movie — claiming he’s responsible for fraud, emotional distress and invasion of privacy.
Translation: She hates looking like a dumbass.
In the movie, Cathy Martin was featured giving etiquette advice to make-believe journalist Borat, and he shows her nude pictures of his (fabricated) teenage son and brings feces to the table.
Hey, at least he brought a hostess gift!
Martin claims that although she signed an agreement to appear in the film, she had no idea she’d become an object of ridicule. Unfortunately for Martin, Holy Candy‘s legal experts don’t expect that argument to hold in court. (See: Jennifer Lopez v. Gigli, Kevin Costner v. Waterworld and Mariah Carey v. Glitter)
