Sascha Baron Cohen Mocks Madonna's Marriage, Adoption
That wouldn't seem so bad except that he's also allegedly mocked the Material Mom's adoption of three-year-old son David Banda from Malawi in his new film. You may recall Baron Cohen did his best to offend pretty much everyone in the big screen's Borat. In his latest effort, Sascha appears as Bruno, a gay fashion journalist you may recognize from YouTube. Bruno totes a young black child named David around fashion shows, which some are saying is too similar to what Madonna has done.
Interestingly enough, Baron Cohen is featured in Madonna's video for the song "Music." No word from Madge's camp on whether or not she's ticked off, but my guess is that she couldn't care less, and I'm not sure why anyone else does either. Being a celebrity basically opens you up to ridicule, and Madonna, whose personal life is anything but personal (no matter how hard she may try to keep it that way, which doesn't really seem that hard anyway), is not different.
What do you think -- did Sascha Baron Cohen go too far by taking aim at Madonna's family?
|No - Madonna had it coming.||163 (58.4%)|
|Yes - he should leave her kids out of it.||74 (26.5%)|
|Yes - this just encourages meanness.||42 (15.1%)|
