Sacha Baron Cohen vs Roy Moore
Sacha Baron Cohen is being sued by a thin-skinned politician for a redic amount of money.
Paleoconservative and accused perv Roy Moore is slapping SBC with a libel suit for $95 million. Geez.
Besmirched GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore is suing good-humored chameleon Sacha Baron Cohen for oodles of doh. Moore and his wife are mounting an all-out legal assault on networks CBS and Showtime for ‘damages suffered.’ The plaintiffs are pressing for defamation, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and fraud.
The tainted politician was a guest on the actor’s show, Who Is America?, in the third episode. He thought he was invited on Yerushalayim TV, a totally contrived Israeli TV series. Judge Moore was to receive an “award for his strong support of Israel in commemoration of its 70th anniversary as a nation state.”
In the episode, SBC plays General Erran Morad, an Israeli counter-terrorism pro and hyper-macho, full spectrum IDF officer. In the interview, they discuss Israeli’s breakneck innovation in weaponry and anti-terror gadgets (‘seismic waves’, for example, used to disrupt Hamas and other squirrly terrorists). The wisecracker pulled out what looked to be a metal detector/wand used by TSA officers, claiming the high-tech device can instantly identify paedophiles. The contraption beeped only when in close proximity to Moore. The visibly distressed politician abruptly ended the Q&A and exited the room, after realizing the clever subterfuge. “Maybe Israeli technology hasn’t developed it properly,” argued Moore. General Morad responded, “it has a 98.5% accuracy rate.”
The case brought before the D.C court accuses SBC & Co. of defaming Moore, arguing that the Senate candidate suffered extreme emotional distress” as a result of “being falsely portrayed as a sex offender and paedophile” on the episode.
Moore, former chief of justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, had been accused of multiple sexual encounters with minors when he was a young sparkplug in his thirties. The accusations surfaced, obviously, during the Senate race where he was once a front-runner and even touted by President Trump. In the end he lost to lefty Doug Jones (below – in blue), who became the first Democratic senator there in 25 years.
“Sacha Baron Cohen, who is not only low class but also a fraudster, will now, along with Showtime and CBS, be held accountable for his outrageous and false, fraudulent and defamatory conduct which callously did great emotional and other damage to this great man and his wife and family,” Moore’s counsel Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch said.
