‘Borat’ Creators Sued by Holocaust Survivor’s Estate for Callously Tricking Her
A Holocaust survivor speaking with Sacha Baron Cohen because her new film “ Borat ” was badly duped because she thought it was making a legitimate documentary … so claims her estate in a new trial.
The domain of Judith Dim Evans – who according to legal documentation is a “well-known speaker and expert on the Holocaust” – lashes out at the creators of the upcoming film “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm” for allegedly prompting her to do an interview towards the end of 2019 and early 2020.
According to the lawsuit … Evans was contacted by producers under false pretenses and believed she was participating in a documentary about the Holocaust and Jewish culture.
Her estate says she traveled to Atlanta with a friend to be interviewed by Cohen and was never told the movie was a comedy – a sequel to “Borat” – and when she found out she was. “Horrified and upset”.
Evans’ estate alleges that she would never have accepted the interview if she knew the true nature of the film was to poke fun at the Holocaust and Jewish culture, and she never consented to what his name and likeness are in such a movie.
The estate also claims that the producers offered to pay Evans and her friend for their participation, but she flatly refused them.
Evans died last summer, so his daughter – the executor of her estate – sued Amazon and Oak Springs Productions … seeking to have her mother’s clips removed from the film’s final cut and d ‘other damage.
The sequel to ‘Borat’ is slated for release on Amazon Prime next week. While Cohen is not named as a defendant in this lawsuit, he is no stranger to being sued for his plans … he is still in a legal battle with Roy Moore.
