In Borat, there is an RV scene involving three drunken frat brothers from South Carolina University. Two of the brothers are now suing claiming they were “induced” to sign waivers after the crew took them to a bar to loosen up. The lawsuit states they “engaged in behavior that they otherwise would not have engaged in.” They forgot to tag on, “if millions of people were going to watch.”
The film “made plaintiffs the object of ridicule, humiliation, mental anguish and emotional and physical distress, loss of reputation, goodwill and standing in the community,” the lawsuit said.
How can three drunken frat brothers from South Carolina university NOT be all those things. They’re college kids and they don’t know what Borat is about? I’m positive on the new college applications there’s a checkbox for “Have you heard of Borat?” I’m also positive the ones that aren’t checked are filed in a folder called “lives in a bubble.”
