She claims she was, “severely injured during filming following a struggle with Baron Cohen and his film crew at a charity bingo tournament,” says the BBC, going on the lawsuit alleges Olson, 37, “now needs a wheelchair or cane to move around”.
Cohen, “attended the event in the guise of his alter ego, BrÃ¼no — described by Olson as an ‘extreme, outrageous, offensive caricature of a gay man dressed in sexually revealing clothing with an Austrian accent’,” says The Guardian, adding:
“She alleges that Baron Cohen ‘offensively touched, pushed and battered her’ when she tried to wrest back the bingo caller’s microphone, resulting in her falling to the ground.
For good measure, “the suit claims that this assault was abetted by several camera operators who ‘attacked [her] for a period of one to five minutes to intentionally create a dramatic emotional response while [they] recorded her humiliation and embarrassment’.”
