During the Kennedy Center Honors on Sunday evening, the British actor resumed his character of Borat to denounce anti-Semitism by attacking former President Donald Trump and rapper Kanye West under the eyes of Joe Biden.
He promised that his character Borat would not return, but put on his costume one last time for the Kennedy Centers Honors. British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, who attended the awards ceremony in Washington in the presence of Joe Biden, denounced anti-Semitism in the United States. To convey his messages, he used Borat, the main character of two films of the same name, who is originally a Kazakh journalist traveling in the United States. The anti-Semitism of this hero is the subject of many jokes.
Kanye West and Donald Trump targeted
Sacha Baron Cohen, himself Jewish, thus multiplied the tackles on the anti-Semitism of Kanye West, reported the Guardian . «Your Kanye, he tried to move to Kazakhstan and change his name to Kazakhstanye West. But we said no: he’s too anti-Semitic, even for us“, he let go. The comedian also attacked Donald Trump. The former President of the United States had dinner in late November with supremacist Nick Fuentes and Kanye West himself. ” It is not fair. Kazakhstan is the number 1 anti-Jewish country. Stop stealing our hobby”said the comedian.
The skit referenced Kanye West’s recent anti-Semitic statements. On December 2, the rapper, who claimed to “adore” Hitler and the Nazis, was banned from Twitter by Elon Musk for posting a swastika intertwined with a Star of David. In response to the controversy, several brands including Adidas and Balenciaga announced that they would stop collaborating with the artist.
