This is followed by Bolt's smug one-line rebuttal in which he implies that Baron Cohen is saying that his fans and audience members are stupid and the joke is on them...
Yeah, the problem I have with the piece is that Jews as a rule love Borat. Look at the Australian Jewish News, it runs 10 pages features on it in praise, it even offers heaps of free tickets, the session I went to was 90% Jewish all who came out with massive smiles on their faces. Every Jew I know loves and imitates Borat to death. My parents do as well.
Therefore, I fail to see why he has to cry anti-semitism, I fail to see why he is offended, when the Jewish community aren't even offended themselves and if anything the exact opposite.
