A man labelled a terrorist in Sacha Baron Cohen’s new movie Bruno says he would like to take the star to court after he was tricked into appearing in the movie, reports Perez Hilton. Ayman Abu Aita said Baron Cohen told him he was being interviewed for a documentary on the struggles facing the Palestinian cause and was never told the film was a joke.
“He said he is a German actor making documentaries watched by young people,” said Aita. ”He wanted to make a story to mobilize the young people to help us. I didn’t have any impression he would use my interview in a bad way.”
Although Aita was once a member of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, he has since left his terrorist associations behind and now works as a board member of the Holy Land Trust.
The film also has audiences talking about a humorous stint featuring American Idol‘s Paula Abdul.
Bruno has earned $30.6 million at the box office since its July 10 opening and has a rating of 6.2 out of 10 on Rotten Tomatoes.
