‘Borat’ Viewers Raise Over $140k For Babysitter in Borat Sequel
Don't worry, if you haven't seen the movie yet this will not spoil it.
If you cringed hard during the latest Borat movie 'Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm' you're not alone. And, maybe you felt some sympathy?
Oklahoma City resident Jeanise Jones thought she was participating in a real documentary about a teen being groomed to marry a rich man. She was hired to 'babysit' Borat's daughter, Tutar in the film.
She claimed that the filmmakers never actually came clean about the true premise of the movie.
Jeanise simply wishes she had been paid more for her appearance after the movie was released. In total she was paid $3,600 to 'babysit' 24-year-old Bulgarian actress Maria Bakalova. (via Variety)
Some people agreed with her and started a Go-Fund-Me account: "Please consider saying thank you to Jeanise with a tangible gift. She’s unemployed right now due to Covid. Previously, she worked on a job for 32 years! She’s faithful! Please consider giving a contribution to simply to say thank you to Jeanise for being a moral compass and a light shining in darkness in this movie." (via CinemaBlend)
So far over $140,000 has been raised.
