Comedian Sasha Baron Cohen is being sued by Roy Moore for $95 million. The lawsuit alleges that Moore, the former Alabama Supreme Court Justice, was tricked into appearing on Cohen’s show.
According to People:
Sacha Baron Cohen has upset yet another political figure.
Former Alabama Supreme Court justice Roy Moore is suing the 46-year-old comedian after appearing on his Showtime series Who Is America?
Moore, who was accused by nine women of sexual misconduct during his race for Alabama Senate last November, launched a $95 million lawsuit against Cohen Wednesday, claiming he was tricked into appearing on the show, according to court documents obtained by both Variety and TMZ.
On the July 29 episode, Moore sat down with Cohen who pretended to be an Israeli security expert named Erran Morad to discuss the development of a machine that detects pedophiles.
Moore is claiming that the false portrayal of him has severely damaged his reputation.
