Sacha Baron Cohen Says 'Who is America' Season 2 Will Not Happen

Sacha Baron Cohen's controversial comedy series Who Is America? concluded on Sunday with an episode that saw the satirist attempt to elicit a murder confession from OJ Simpson.

Sacha Baron Cohen's unusual brand of humor has landed him in hot water with political figures in recent months after somehow managing to get them to do all sorts of weird stuff on his provocative prank series, "Who is America?".

In the episode, Sacha dressed as Gio Monaldo, an Italian billionaire. The fact that OJ wanted to partake in such a petty show is already enough to make a "Who Is America" fan put down her viewing snacks in distaste.

It's some cringeworthy stuff, especially when Monaldo brought in an Italian girlfriend who knew Simpson not for his acting or athletic career, but only for his reputation as a cold-blooded killer.

After Christina's exit, Baron Cohen, in character, confessed to Simpson: "She's gorgeous, but sometimes I want to kill her". Simpson, and trying to get him to admit he committed the murders. The ex-Buffalo Bill responded laughing while saying, "I didn't kill nobody". You're not the O.J. the movie star.

Who Is America? is airing now on Stan.

"Me and you, we got something in common", Monaldo told Simpson.

Before Palin railed against Cohen, the comedian made headlines last February for reportedly interviewing Simpson - a former football player and actor who is now most famous for being charged with killing his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and then getting acquitted, only to eventually go to prison for his role in an armed robbery in 2007. The Hall of Famer laughs, then said "Stop".

Someone who wasn't featured on the finale was former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who earlier this summer has spoken out about being tricked by Cohen.

However, his jovial demeanor and the high five that he offered Baron Cohen seemed incriminating enough to us.

In July, Palin started a media storm, claiming on Facebook she had been "duped" by Baron Cohen and "fallen victim to the evil, exploitive (sic), sick "humour" " during an interview, which ultimately did not air.

"Well, first off she wasn't my wife, we had been divorced we had been separated for two years", Simpson explains.
