Bruno Scene Cut After Michael Jackson Dies

by at . Comments

Sacha Baron Cohen may be known for his tasteless humor, but a scene from his new movie which ridicules Michael Jackson has been cut out at the last minute.

It was deemed “in too poor taste,” in light of the fact that Jackson died yesterday at the age of 50. The change was made in time for the Bruno premiere.

A situation like this is almost unheard of, as the studio in charge of the film’s release had to perform the last-second edit in time for the debut last night.

Bruno follows Sacha Baron Cohen’s alias, a gay fashion reporter from Austria (Bruno) on a journey around America. It's Cohen's NC-17 follow-up to Borat.

In the deleted scene, Cohen, in character as Bruno, conducts a ridiculous interview with La Toya Jackson, sister of the late Michael, in his chic LA apartment.

After getting her to sit on his “chairs” – Mexican workers bending over on all fours – and then serving her sushi of the hairy body of a naked man, Bruno proceeds to steal La Toya’s cellphone so that he can copy Michael Jackson’s number.

Yeah. Probably a good call to cut that.

The original version of the film has already premiered in Europe including in London, Paris and Berlin, where the comedian has attracted a lot of attention with fancy dress outfits (Sacha Baron Cohen fashion is quite unique) and antics.
