The two racist douche bags from South Carolina who were seen in Borat making fools of themselves in the Winnebago have already been dealing with the fact that their “scene” wasn’t cut out of the movie in theaters but now will have to explain to their grandkids one day as that scene will live in immortality…even on DVD.
Borat Finds Success Against First Lawsuit
The kids argued that they were drunk when they agreed to be a part of the film and that they were told the film would never be shown in the U.S. The argument that it’s ok to be a bigot in the eyes of people in other countries but not your own must not have moved the Los Angeles Superior Court judge, Joseph Biderman.
Borat isn’t out of the water just yet though. Two Romanian residents are suing for $30 million because they were told that they were participating in a documentary about poverty in Romania (ok, that’s messed up). Cindy Streit, the etiquette trainer in the film, is also filing a lawsuit for being a poor sport.
