Palestinian group threatens ’Bruno’ star Sacha Baron Cohen
The Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, an armed wing of the ruling Fatah movement in the West Bank, is threatening a "suitable" response to its inclusion in Sacha Baron Cohen’s new comedy, "Bruno."
According to World Net Daily, the controversy erupted after Ayman Abu Aita said he was falsely portrayed in the film as a member of the al-Aqsa-Martyrs’ Brigades during an interview in the film by Cohen’s homosexual alter-ego who posed as a journalist.
Separately, the group denounced Cohen’s "dirty use" of Aita, claiming that he was misled as to the "real context of the film."
Bruno is seen remarking to Aita: "I want to be famous. I want the best guys in the business to kidnap me. Al-Qaida is so 2001."
