Turkish Comedian Alleges Sacha Cohen Stole His Character

Turkish comedian Mahir Cagri is alleging that Sacha Cohen (Borat) stole his character:

Stuff.co.nz—Borat’s US$26.4 million box office debut at the weekend will no doubt make benefit glorious Sacha Baron Cohen, but now the real-world Borat wants his cut. …

But Borat’s success, which has brought untold riches to Cohen, the character’s creator, has caught the ire of late-90’s internet sensation Mahir Cagri, who says he’s been ripped off. …

Apparently Borat is doing very well. I gave Borat two thumbs down and got smacked down by a contrarian, oh well.
