Dictator Sacha declares 'War' over red-carpet ban
Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, dressed as The Dictator, voiced his "outrage" at Oscars organisers for banning his character from the award show's red carpet -- although the actor is not barred and will be part of the show.
Dressed as fictional dictator Admiral General Aladeen for the upcoming mockumentary film, The Dictator, Cohen branded Oscar organisers "zionists" for banning him from the Hollywood film awards tomorrow. A video of Aladeen's comedic speech, posted online, shows him in a gilded chair surrounded by guards.
"I warn you that if you do not lift your sanctions and give me my tickets back by 12pm on Sunday, you will face unimaginable consequences," he shouted.
