An elderly Palmdale, California, lady, Richelle Olson, is suing Sacha Baron Cohen and a slew of others involved in the filming of his Brüno movie for crippling her and causing her to be in a wheelchair.
Back in 2007, Cohen arrived at a hall in Palmdale where Brüno – dressed, she said, as an “extreme, outrageous, offensive caricature of a gay man … in sexually revealing clothing” – was to call the numbers in a bingo game she was hosting. Of course, Brüno’s language became so vulgar that she tried to take the microphone away from him, but a tussle ensued and she says he “offensively touched, pushed and battered” her, causing her to fall. Then three cameramen and some others attacked her for about five minutes, filming the whole time. After the assault, a sobbing Olson went into another room, became unconscious and fell onto a concrete slab, hitting her head. She was rushed to the hospital and diagnosed with “two brain bleeds” and has been confined to a wheelchair and walker ever since. Olson and her husband are suing for unspecified damages, including loss of marital relations. (via MTV)
If given the choice, she’d probs have gone with his taint and nutsack in her face. We know we would have.
