Oscars 2012: The Dictator (aka Sacha Baron Cohen) Breaks Silence Over Oscars Red Carpet Snub (VIDEO)

General Admiral Aladeen, aka The Dictator, lesser known as Sacha Baron Cohen, has broken his silence over his rejection by the Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Sciences from the red carpet of the Oscars ceremony, due to be held on Sunday evening in Los Angeles.

The Dictator, who had been expected to appear in full garb at the event, has made a political address on behalf of the Republic of Wadiya, in which he expresses his "outrage" at being ousted by "the academy of motion pictures, arts and zionists".

He also makes a dire warning that unless the Academy lifts its sanctions, ie returns his tickets, by Sunday, unimaginable consequences will occur.

While he's on his soap box, the Dictator, flanked by two soldiers, makes some other outrageous reflections on the Hollywood event that he will no longer be part of, although it seems he won't be staying at home entirely...
