A US TV producer alleges she was fired after hiring British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen for her show. DHARMA ARTHUR booked Baron Cohen to appear on her Mississippi TV channel as spoof Kazakh TV presenter BORAT SAGDIYEV, and she was axed after the comedian made his usual rude jokes gags and disrupted the weather forecast. Arthur still regrets hiring Baron Cohen, saying, "Think of all the others who've probably been fired due to his antics."
