Just when GLAAD had moved on from him and (presumably) onto something else, the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, the terrorist group depicted in Bruno is “very upset” their group’s namesake and former member was featured in the film and have vowed to take “appropriate action” against the Bruno’s creator, Sacha Baron Cohen.
The group released a statement saying that:
“We reserve the right to respond in the way we find suitable against this man (Cohen).”
“This movie was part of a conspiracy against the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades,” continued the statement, released through a senior member of the group in the West Bank.
“According to what we checked there was no meeting about the real context of the film. This was a dirty use of our brother, Aiman, and we don’t accept that the name of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades is part of the film.”
