Although we will probably see a different treatment in the movie, in real life Cohen defended the men.
Sacha Baron Cohen affirms that they are good people and that their ideas are the fault of social media. “They are ordinary people. They are good people who have been fed a diet of lies.

In turn, the actor confesses that these days were the more difficult for him throughout the shoot. Not because of his housemates, but because staying in character for five days was exhausting. “The hardest thing I had to do was live as the character for five days in this quarantine house. I woke up, had breakfast, ate, had dinner and went to sleep like Borat when he lived in the house of these conspirators. I couldn't get out of character at any time. "
The truth is that the actor is used to cope with tense moments during the recordings of his movies. In an interview with Time, he said that during the filming of Borat 2 he feared for his life. The team was filming in a rally in favor of arms and when the actor was recognized he had to flee. The gun-laden protesters surrounded Cohen's car and they tried to get him out of the vehicle.
