“Wear Mask, Save Live'' is seen on every poster of the mockumentary sequel, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, while thoroughly bashing social distance regulations and expanding upon “Wuhan Virus'' conspiracy theories. The first Borat was made back in 2006 and started the wave of mocking cultures and insulting countries. Despite the blatant anti-Semitism and sexist remarks of the first film, it received great praise in the United States for its originality. It was purposely meant to be a joke, as a majority of critics agreed that it was a phenomenal social experiment that made audiences laugh at their ignorance. However, the film was banned in Kazakhstan, where Borat is supposedly from, as an extreme offense of stereotyping negative and untrue aspects of the country. Borat represents a Kazakhstan where women have absolutely no power and must submit to men, where people are uneducated buffoons who hate Jews and deny the existence of the Holocaust, and where people openly accept the horrible roles of society, such as the “Village Rapist.” Kazakhstan hated Borat, but Americans loved him.

About the Author: My name is Charles but people in crypto call me smokie. While I am legitimately obsessed about cryptocurrency, I am in college for Media and Film with a strong focus in Cultural Criticism and Ancient Philosophy. It seems the two work together like Ketchup and Mayo.
