'If I See Borat, I Will Kill Him With My Own Hands'


Paulina Solomon also has a bone to pick with Borat. She showed us her contribution to the movie, which earned her $100.

Her old, blue Dacia car served as Borat's horse-drawn vehicle.

"They took it to Bucharest, and when they brought it back the engine was full of sand. I had to pay $500 to get it fixed. I want my money back," she said.

And then we met the man who owns "Borat's house."

It's more like a shack, but no we didn't see a cow in the living room. Gherorghe Luca owns the house. He was so opposed to talking to us, he began screaming.

We were of course invading his town, so we don't really blame him. Luca's wife shooed us away with a broom.

"There is no point in suing. Nothing will change," said one of the neighbors who also said that Cohen's production company had called her telling her not to waste time contacting a lawyer because they "won't get anything."

Greg Brilliant, a spokesman for 20th Century Fox, defended the behavior of the film production team in Glod, in a phone interview with ABCNEWS.com.

He said the villagers involved "were extras that were hired to be in a movie. They were paid to do that. Nobody was made fun of."

Brilliant went on to say that the movie "is a satire that has a message of tolerance. It exposes bigotry and racism."

He also highlighted Cohen's generosity to Glod, saying the comedian had given $10,000 to the village.

Not everyone is angry at the comedian with the moustache.

Luca Irina, who also goes by the name of Chocolata, blurted out, "Borat is the best. He is funny."

She showed us the dance moves that earned her a small role in the movie. Irina also happens to be the only person in Glod who has seen the movie.
