The beloved babysitter from “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm” also benefited from a recent crowdfunding campaign exceeding $ 128,000.

According to the first People report, the funds will be distributed by Ebenezer Baptist Church at Jones’s request, and reserved for essential needs such as accommodation and food.

Scobey told People about Sacha Baron Cohen’s donation: “I was surprised but not surprised because I was told about the kind of heart this man has. “Maybe it’s a bit reckless, some movie thing, but he has a good heart.” The money, Scobey said, would not be of direct benefit to the church but would instead support a community struggling with ice storms and power outages.
Scobey told People: “While people all over the world adore how she is the film’s moral compass, she’s sitting here serving people in the dark and in the cold. . “This is who we are. Here’s what we do for our community and we love our community.”
The rampant support for Jones came after she gave an interview to the New York Post recently, where she said she felt “betrayed” by the crew of “Borat 2”. and she was led to believe she was in a bogus documentary about a teenage girl being groomed to marry a rich man. Jones says she didn’t know this situation was created for the “Borat 2” plot, and added that she spent weeks worrying about Tutar, whom she supposed was a real person being brushed. polishing.
“I feel [Tutar is] from the Third Period and that happens where they sell women, ”Jones told The Post. “I think this is true so I feel betrayed by it… We are concerned. We were up there praying for her and asking God to help her and we are doing what we think is what Christianity should do ”.
Jones received the role in “Borat 2” because of her relationship with Ebenezer Baptist Church in Oklahoma City, where producers used to choose the role.
The GoFundMe campaign is separate from the Baron Cohen’s donation that now exceeds $ 128,000.
