Jewish comedian Sacha Baron Cohen brings back his Borat character to take on Kanye West’s antisemitic tirades, the Guardian reports.
Appearing at the Kennedy Center Honors in Washington DC to pay tribute to U2 singer Bono, Borat addressed West, who now goes by Ye.
“Before I proceed, I will say I am very upset about the antisemitism in US and A,” he says. “It not fair. Kazakhstan is No. 1 Jew-crushing nation. Stop stealing our hobby. Stop the steal! Stop the steal!”
“Your Kanye, he tried to move to Kazakhstan and even changed his name to Kazakhstanye West. But we said: No, he too antisemitic, even for us,” Borat says.
Borat then sings his version of U2’s “With or Without You.”
“With or without Jews,” he sings, before adding “What’s the problem? They loved this at Mar-a-Lago. They chose ‘without Jews.’”
