Britbox steeaming bosses slap racism warnings on old episodes of Sacha Baron Cohen’s Da Ali G Show 

TV bosses have placed a warning on Sacha Baron Cohen‘s Da Ali G Show warning new viewers about ‘racist terms’. 

The comedy, which was broadcast on Channel 4 in 2000, was controversial for Baron Cohen’s depiction of an urban rapper and his spoof interviews. 

Ali G was renowned for ambushing people with inappropriate questions – including Donald Trump in 2003. However, the property tycoon walked out of the interview after only a minute.

According to The Sun an insider said: ‘The warning will be greeted with disbelief by anyone who watched the original series which was almost universally liked.

‘There were some voices who criticised the show for allowing people to laugh at black, urban street culture, but the majority of viewers thought Ali G was hilarious.’ 

However, the series, which is now offered on the Britbox streaming platform warns sensitive viewers the show contains ‘crude humour, including racist terms which may offend, sexual references and strong language’. 

Later, the comedian targeted Rudi Giuliani in his movie Borat Subsequent Moviefilm. 

Secret filming shows Trump’s lawyer in a compromising position in a hotel room with a young woman acting as a journalist.

Mr Trump said of Baron Cohen: ‘You know, years ago, he tried to scam me.

‘And I was the only one that said: ‘No way. This guy is a phony guy.”

‘I don’t find him funny,’ the US leader said, adding: ‘To me, he’s a creep.’ 

One scene in Baron Cohen’s sequel to the original Borat movie shows Mr Giuliani on a bed, tucking in his shirt with his hand down his trousers after the woman helps him remove recording equipment.

Mr Giuliani called the scene ‘a hit job’, and said he realised he was being set up.
