Sacha Baron Cohen from the Borat subsequent donated $100,000 for the baby sitter who was conned into believing that the film was actually a documentary.
Sacha Baron Cohen is known for his acting in the film Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan recently starred in the recently released Borat the subsequent film.
For those who don’t know, Borat is a comedy film that revolves around a reporter Borat Sagdiyev who visits the US along with his producer, Azamat Bagatov, and a pet hen.
Now the sequel of the film has been recently released. This film is all about Borat offering his daughter as a bride to Vice President Mike Pence during the COVID-19 pandemic and the 2020 presidential election.
In the film, Jeanie Jones appears as the baby sitter who convinces Borat’s 12-year-old daughter Tutar not to have plastic surgery to please her father. With her babysitting and acting, the 62-year-old has warmed the hearts of millions.
However, after the movie was released, Jones spoke up saying she felt conned, after being led to believe she was taking part in a documentary about child brides and women’s rights. She only learned the true nature of the film when a friend alerted her to the trailer, which was released last month.
Here is the trailer.
However, since the release of the film, Jones has become a firm favorite among fans of the comedy. Hence when her pastor Derrick Scobey opened a GoFundMe fundraising campaign, thousands came forward to donate including the actor who played Borat.
The fundraising account explains that Jones and the church were concerned for Tutar’s welfare and had been praying for her ever since the encounter.
The Pastor wrote,
“This was not scripted for Jeanise. It all came from the heart. She is one of the most authentic people I’ve ever met. Please consider saying thank you to Jeanise with a tangible gift. She’s unemployed right now due to Covid. Previously, she worked on a job for 32 years. She’s faithful!”
At the time of writing, the GoFundMe had surpassed its goal of $100,000 by an impressive $61,000 and now Cohen himself has pledged to donated $100,000 to Jones’ Oklahoma community on her behalf.
Scobey said he was ‘blown away’ by the donation from Cohen, ‘but not surprised because I was told about what type of heart this man has.’
