The terrorist have found something else to take out their crazy frustrations out on and this time it’s a movie star. Actually, it’s a character! They are pissed about Sacha Baron Cohen‘s character Bruno and they wanna blow his *ss up!
The Palestinian militant group al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade is going after Sacha Baron Cohen because he ridiculed one of their boys. Sacha met with terrorist Ayman Abu Aita in the movie and made the dude look like an idiot and after being threatened by al-Aqsa, Sacha has amped up his security.
The group is alleged to be responsible for dozens of suicide bombings and shootings. It has been designated as a terrorist organisation by the European Union and the United States.
Baron Cohen’s Austrian character ridicules the Martyrs’ Brigades when he attempts to get himself kidnapped during a meeting with Ayman Abu Aita, who is identified in the film as the leader of the organisation.
His character is shown telling Mr Abu Aita: “I want to be famous. I want the best guys in the business to kidnap me. Al-Qaeda is so 2001.” Brüno then suggests that Mr Abu Aita remove his moustache, explaining: “Because your king Osama looks like a kind of dirty wizard or homeless Santa.”
The group condemned the use of the interview with Mr Abu Aita. “This was a dirty use of our brother, Ayman, and we don’t accept that the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades is part of the film,” the statement said.
Come on al-Aqsa, it can’t be about bombings and blowing yourself up all the time! You gotta learn how to have a little fun and laugh at yourself. Unstrap the suicide gear, have a beer and Xanax, and relax for once.
