Default Borat 2: Sacha Baron Cohen donates $100k to Jeanise Jones fundraiser

Sacha Baron Cohen has donated $100,000 (£77,482) to a fundraiser for a babysitter who says she feels “betrayed” by her portrayal in Borat 2.

Jeanise Jones, 62, features in a number of scenes in Baron Cohen’s comedy sequel, as she is recruited to babysit Tutar (Maria Bakalova), the 15-year-old daughter of Borat (Baron Cohen).

But despite Jones and Tutar striking up a bond in the film, the professional babysitter this week claimed that she did not know who Baron Cohen was when she was asked to participate in the film and had believed it was a documentary about women’s rights.

With Jones being paid $3,600 (£2,600) to participate in the film, a GoFundMe was set up by her pastor Derrick Scobey – who originally put Jones in touch with the Borat 2 production team – on Tuesday (26 October).





Baron Cohen has now donated a large sum to the fundraiser. At Jones’s request, the $100,000 from Baron Cohen will not go to Jones but will be spread out to her Oklahoma City community on her behalf by the local Ebenezer Baptist Church. The funds will be allocated to shelter, food and any other needs the community has.

“I was blown away but not surprised because I was told about what type of heart this man has,” Scobey told People of Baron Cohen’s donation.

“Maybe it’s a little risqué, some of the things in the movie, but he has a good heart.”

The GoFundMe for Jones has, at the time of writing, reached $140,206 in donations.

I thought she came across great in the film though. Obviously they can't be honest before filming if they want to get genuine reactions etc. though I do think they should be honest about it after filming the scenes and ask the person if they still want to participate... even if it would mean re-filming with someone else if it's a no (or more likely, offering more money until they say yes).

I'm pretty sure it's usually how they get the "catfishes" to appear on Catfish. Just keep offering more cash until they say OK .

She was very sweet. I'm glad to hear that was genuinely her and that it wasn't scripted.

I thought the women who were at the meeting when the daughter was talking about masturbation came across well too, they were very welcoming and happy to hear her talk even when it turned crude they weren't rude to her.
