'Sacha Baron Cohen' accused of crashing right-wing rally as a country singer
Sacha Baron Cohen has been accused of being the man behind a bold new stunt at a conservative rally in Washington, getting attendees to sing about the ‘Wuhan flu’.
The comedian, disguised as a country singer, is said to have taken to the stage at the March for Our Rights 3 rally to perform a song containing lyrics about how they should ‘chop’ journalists up ‘like the Saudis do’, referencing the death of Jamal Khashoggi in 2018.
The song also referred to Chinese people as ‘sushi-eaters’, and had the lyric: ‘Chinese people what we going to do? Nuke ’em up like in World War 2′, with the crowd joining in.
It also had a line about injecting political figures with ‘Wuhan Flu’.
In footage from the event, the singer is seen wearing a floppy hat, a red shirt and blue overalls.
James Connor Blair, a local counsellor, posted on social media that the actor’s security ‘blocked event organisers from getting him off the stage or pulling power from the generator’.
He also slammed the song as ‘racist, hateful’ and ‘disgusting’, and stressed that the members of the crowd that sang along with Sacha ‘DO NOT represent the event, it’s organisers, or the vast majority of those who attended’.
Metro.co.uk has contacted Sacha’s publicist for comment.
The man behind Borat and Ali G is known for his stunts, having previously convinced people at a bar in Arizona to sing along to his song which included the lyrics: ‘Throw the Jew down the well’.
