Sacha Baron Cohen entered a Riverside, California, gun store wearing a disguise then fled the scene after the gun store’s owner called him out.
Norris Sweidan owns Warrior One Guns & Ammo and he says Cohen entered his business disguised as a Hungarian immigrant last year.
Fox 11 quotes Sweidan saying, “He comes in, off the bat you can see in the video I’m looking like, this guy does not look like a Hungarian immigrant, tight ass leather pants, a beard, it just didn’t fit. The moment his words came out of his mouth I was like this guy is full of s***.”
He said Cohen had a camera crew with him and claimed to be filming a documentary, part of which would focus on him buying a gun.
Sweidan said, “I’m looking at the producer and I’m just like am I being fooled right here? And I just kept looking at the guy and I was like you’re Borat, as soon as I said that his eyes just looked at me like, and he did a turn right out the door.”
