Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest character Bruno had a gig presenting at the MTV Awards Sunday evening, and in true Cohen fashion, the appearance didn’t disappoint.
Flying through the air with angel wings, Bruno yelled to a taken down…. and ended up landing on Eminem’s. This is where it gets a little more adult in nature: Bruno landed upside down with his head in Eminem’s crotch, and his near naked ass in Eminem’s face.
Eminem, not exactly known for his tolerance towards gay people, didn’t take it well. “Are you serious?” Eminem screeched. “Get the f&%k off me!” Eminem’s bodyguards then yanked Bruno away, leaving the rapper to storm out of the venue.
The only question outstanding from the incident is whether it was real or staged? First thoughts are staged: it would be surprising of MTV to upset a star in this way. But looking at the video, you just can’t be sure. If Eminem was acting, it was a damn fine act.
