British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen — best known for the 2006 movie “Borat” — mocked child molestation for his Showtime series “Who Is America?” The skit became so extreme that even Cohen got disturbed.
On his show, Baron Cohen often poses as a journalist while tricking people (usually conservative politicians) into making embarrassing statements. The interview subjects don’t know that Cohen is actually a comedian masquerading as a “journalist” — like most of today’s media.
In his latest skit, Cohen’s character “Gio Monaldo” interviewed a Las Vegas hotel concierge to investigate how serial sexual assaulters like Democrat mega-donor Harvey Weinstein got away with their predatory behavior for so long.
“During the interview, I revealed that Gio has molested an 8-year-old boy,” Baron Cohen told Deadline. “Mind you, this is extreme comedy and we thought that the guy would leave the room. Instead, this concierge stays in the room…this guy starts advising Gio how to get rid of this issue.”
The conversation took an even darker turn at one point, Cohen recalled: “We even at one point talk about murdering the boy, and the concierge is just saying, ‘Well, listen, I’m really sorry. In this country, we can’t just drown the boy. This is America we don’t do that.’ And then, in the end, he puts me in touch with a lawyer who can silence the boy.”
At one point, Baron Cohen said he asked the concierge to put him in touch with an underage boy for a date.
The concierge reportedly replied, “Yeah, I can put you in touch with somebody who can get you some boys like that.”
Sacha Baron Cohen said he was so alarmed by the concierge’s lax attitude toward child molestation that he contacted the FBI.
Cohen — who’s known for his irreverent, often-offensive “comedy” — said the concierge crossed a line — even for him.
“It was so extreme and so dark that it was too unsettling,” he said. Amazingly, the FBI decided not to pursue the pedophilia claims.
Meanwhile, public outrage is growing amid revelations that many in liberal Hollywood and the media were aware of Harvey Weinstein’s rapacious behavior for the past 30 years but kept silent.
Over the years, many people came forward (like child actors Corey Feldman, the late Corey Haim, and “Lord of the Rings” star Elijah Wood) detailing how sleazy Hollywood executives threw parties where they invited young boys, sexually molested them, and then passed them around to each other.
In 2011, Feldman said child sex abuse is rampant in show business. “The No. 1 problem in Hollywood was, is, and always will be pedophilia,” he told ABC News. “I was surrounded by pedophiles.”
Despite Feldman’s revelations, no actions were taken to crack down on pedophiles in the entertainment industry.
