A pain in the redneck… US rally crashed by Borat star

Singalong: Baron Cohen baits crowd

BORAT comedian Sacha Baron Cohen infiltrated a US far-right rally to perform a racist song as a hillbilly.

The British actor got the audience to sing vile lyrics as he performed ditties attacking Covid-19 expert Dr Anthony Fauci and Barack Obama.

Wearing dungarees with hay bales at the back, Cohen, 48, sang: ‘Liberals, what we gonna do? Inject them with the Wuhan flu.’

Other lyrics went: ‘Hillary Clinton, what we gonna do? Lock her up like we used to do,’ and, ‘Who wants to chop ’em up like the Saudis do?’

He also taunted ‘mask wearers’ among the 500-strong audience at the rally in Olympia, Washington.

City council member James Connor Blair denounced the stunt despite footage showing some people singing along.

‘He came on stage disguised as the lead singer of the last band, singing a bunch of racist, hateful, disgusting s***,’ Mr Blair wrote on Facebook.

‘His security blocked event organisers from getting him off the stage.’

Cohen’s singalong came to an end when the crowd allegedly turned on him and his security bundled him into an ambulance to escape.

The March For Our Rights 3 event, which counters a 2018 student-led March For Our Lives demonstration in the wake of the Parkland High School shooting in Florida, is pro-gun and staunchly conservative. It is not clear if Cohen was filming scenes for his TV series Who Is America? in which he pranks Republicans.
