Giuliani Calls Cops After Sacha Baron Cohen Crashes his Interview Dressed in Drag
With an election looming in November, Sacha Baron Cohen has appeared to prank unsuspecting right-wing figures. In late June, the comedian infiltrated a militia event where he took to the stage and sang a anti face-covering song.
The shock humor expert was at it again this week in New York City. A publicist had set up and interview with Rudy Giuliani to speak about the COVID-19 pandemic. While the former New York City Mayor conducted an interview, Cohen stormed in wearing a pink dress. Giuliani reacted by calling the NYPD.
Giuliani told the New York Post, “This guy comes running in, wearing a crazy, what I would say was a pink transgender outfit. It was a pink bikini, with lace, underneath a translucent mesh top, it looked absurd. He had the beard, bare legs, and wasn’t what I would call distractingly attractive.”
While the police were called, Cohen was able to elude them by running down the street in just a bathrobe.

The former New York Mayor said that he is actually a fan of the comedian.
“I only later realized it must have been Sacha Baron Cohen. I thought about all the people he previously fooled and I felt good about myself because he didn’t get me…I am a fan of some of his movies, ‘Borat’ in particular, because I’ve been to Kazakhstan. [mimicking a Borat accent] She is my sister. She is number four prostitute in all of Kazakhstan.’ That was pretty funny.”
