'Grimsby' - the new movie by Sacha Baron Cohen - reportedly features a scene in which Britain's Queen Elizabeth gets HIV
Sacha Baron Cohen's new comedy 'Grimsby' reportedly features a scene in which Britain's Queen Elizabeth gets HIV.
The 89-year-old monarch develops the virus in the movie - which is due out in March 2016 - when she is splattered with blood by a child who is carrying HIV.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Nothing should surprise you with Sacha's comedy.
"But the scene with the Queen is bleak. It's more gruesome than anything he has done before.
"No decision has been made on whether it will make the final cut, but if it does it will inevitably cause a lot of outrage."
This comes shortly after it was revealed Sacha, 43, has managed to anger residents of Grimsby because of his unflattering portrayal of the sea port.
Nev Carrick, landlord of the Corporation Arms, said: "For a successful comedian I would've thought he'd have come up with a more original joke than, 'It's grim in Grimsby'. But by the looks of it he's made a whole film out of it.
"A lot of people in this town are unhappy about it, especially his fat, tattooed women characters. I don't know where he's seen them around here, I certainly haven't."
