Every few weeks The Beet will get an email from someone upset at something that we have written. We secretly love these emails because we know that we are hitting a nerve. For the famous, and want to be famous, really any publicity is good publicity. Don't believe me? Paris Hilton is the best example. Linsday Lohan secretly owes the paparazzi for her career. Getting your name out there is the name of the game.
The President of Kazaskstan thankfully has realized this idea that any publicity is good publicity and in an article for The Hollywood Reporter he has stated, "This film was created by a comedian so let's laugh at it, that's my attitude."
Finally somebody gets that this movie is a joke. Though, "Baron Cohen's jokes have become a public relations headache for Kazakhstan as the former Soviet state seeks to portray itself as a modern nation of well-educated professionals and a major non-OPEC oil exporter," the President Nursultan Nazarbayev thankfully has taken the high road and simply enjoyed his country's name recognition in the world.
If you haven't seen this movie it is worth the hype. Plus, I heard "Babel" was the worst movie ever.
