Damn German Nazis!

A human rights group campaigning for gypsies has filed a complaint against British comic Sacha Baron Cohen over his “Borat” film featuring a spoof Kazakh journalist who calls himself a former “gypsy catcher,” German prosecutors said.

“The state prosecutor’s office in the northern city of Hamburg said the European Center for Antiziganism Research had brought the complaint accusing Cohen of slander, inciting violence against the Sinti and Roma gypsy groups and violating Germany’s anti-discrimination law.”
