Sarah Palin Says She Was ‘Duped’ by Sacha Baron Cohen

In a Facebook post Tuesday, the former Alaska governor admitted that she had been "duped" by Baron Cohen, whose previous characters include clueless Kazakh journalist Borat, USA Today reports.

The 54-year-old former Governor of Alaska took to Facebook on Tuesday (July 10) to slam the 46-year-old actor/comedian for tricking her into believing that he was a disabled US veteran for fake interview for his upcoming show.

"Sacha Baron Cohen at it again!"

Palin, 54, claims she received a request to contribute to a "legit historical documentary" and was asked to travel across the U.S. with one of her daughters, who she did not name, to speak to a disabled USA veteran. She says she "sat through a long "interview" full of Hollywoodism's disrespect and sarcasm" but ended up removing her mic and walking out. "The disrespect of our USA military and middle-class Americans via Cohen's foreign commentaries under the guise of interview questions was perverse", she said.

Dubbing Cohen "shallow Sacha boy", she dared him to "go ahead" and "air the footage", before issuing a "challenge" that he and the networks donate the series' earnings to a veterans charity.

Mrs. Palin was responding to a tweet by Matt Drudge announcing that Mr. Cohen had tricked Mrs. Palin - among others including Dick Cheney, Howard Dean and Ted Koppel - into appearing in scenes for his upcoming Showtime series "Who is America?"

Palin noted the decision to pose as a wounded veteran was a disrespectful choice on Cohen's part.

Sarah Palin is less than impressed with Sacha Baron Cohen's behaviour.

Palin further claimed the production team deliberately dropped her and her daughter (she doesn't specify which one) at the wrong airport "knowing we'd miss all flights back home to Alaska".

Sasha Baron Cohen is set to appar in a Showtime miniseries called "Who is America?" where the actor goes 'undercover to nail Republicans, ' according to a source. Experience tells us it will be heavily edited, not pretty, and meant to humiliate.

"The disrespect of our USA military and middle-class Americans via Cohen's foreign commentaries under the guise of interview questions was perverse", she continued, and then issued Cohen, Showtime and CBS a challenge.

There was no immediate response from Showtime. She referred to his humor as "evil, exploitive" and "sick".

She also informed Cohen that Piper thinks he is a 'piece of s***'.

"Every honorable American Vet should feel the same", she wrote.

Showtime's president and CEO praised Baron Cohen as a "comedic genius" during the show's series announcement Monday.
