New York, June 4 (ANI): Sacha Baron Cohen is said to be in trouble once again over his gay fashionista alter ego Bruno.
According to TMZ.com, a woman has sued UK comedian Cohen, NBC Universal and others for unspecified damages claiming that the actor (as Bruno) “offensively touched, pushed and battered” her at a Bingo Hall in 2007.
Richelle Olson, the Executive Director of Desert Valley Charities, says that Cohen grabbed the microphone at the event in Palmdale, California, and started using vulgarities in front of an elderly audience while calling the numbers, reports the New York Daily News.
Olson claims a struggle ensued after she tried to take back the microphone and the altercation consequently caused her to fall to the ground.
She alleges that after her “humiliation and embarrassment” was recorded, she began “sobbing uncontrollably,” lost consciousness, and then fell forward onto a “thinly covered concrete slab.”
Olson says she was diagnosed with “two brain bleeds” after passing out and hitting her head, and has been confined to a wheelchair and walker ever since. (ANI)
