Borat to ban Jews

A press conference by Borat in London to promote his controversial new film may be banned to Jewish journalists or anyone with a Jewish sounding name, SomethingJewish.co.uk can reveal.
The spoof character created by Sacha Baron Cohen is said to be toying with the idea of not allowing any Jews to attend a media event which is promoting Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.
Baron Cohen is in London this week to attend the UK premiere of the film which takes place tonight and plans to fully act like his character who is known for being anti-Semitic.
According to an insider: "Sacha has been thinking of ways he can have some fun with the British media and one idea suggested has been to demand Jewish journalists attending to leave the press conference. Borat would do this by reading out their names and telling the audience that unless the Jews leave, he will not continue with the press conference nor answer any questions."
