New Delhi:

The annual 77th Golden Globes Awards will be remembered as an award of roasts with Sasha Baron Cohen, Rickey Gervais queuing the line. The master of satire who is known for calling out big shots through his works such as ‘This is America’ called out Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg once again after his power speech a The Anti-Defamation League’s Never is Now summit in November.

Calling out the social media mogul while taking the stage to announce Taika Waititi' s Jojo Rabbit as one of the nominees in the best motion picture comedy or musical category, Cohen said

“The hero of this next movie is a naive, misguided child who spreads Nazi propaganda and only has imaginary friends,” the comedian said midway through the ceremony. “His name is Mark Zuckerberg.”

As the audience awkwardly laughed, he added, “Sorry, sorry. This is an old intro for The Social Network. I’m actually talking about Jojo Rabbit. It’s nominated for two Golden Globes and it’s directed by its star, the brilliant and groundbreaking Taika Waititi.” 

Baron Cohen’s roast comes months after he slayed Zuckerberg at the Anti-Defamation League’s Never is Now summit in November where he singled out Zuckerberg for facilitating the spread of hate around the world. 

“This is not about limiting anyone’s free speech,” Baron Cohen said at the time. “This is about giving people, including some of the most reprehensible people on earth, the biggest platform in history to reach a third of the planet.”

“Sadly, there will always be racists, misogynists, anti-Semites and child abusers,” he added. “But I think we could all agree that we should not be giving bigots and pedophiles a free platform to amplify their views and target their victims.”
