Ever wonder what happened to the real people who appeared in a fake documentary? They don't always have to cope with the aftermath of public humilation.
Jeanise Jones was told she would be participating in a documentary about child brides and women's rights. What she actually ended up appearing in was "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm," the sequel to 2006's Borat. Now, a GoFundMe for the Oklahoma grandmother set up by her pastor has raised over $130,000 after Jones told Variety she was only paid $3,600 for her appearance.
If you don't remember Jones, she was the woman tasked with babysitting Borat's daughter, Tutar, while Borat (played by Sacha Baron Cohen) attempted to make money for his daughter's plastic surgery.
"I can't say it was fair because they knew it was going to be a movie, and I didn't. I just thought I was doing a documentary about how we do things in America. But I blame myself for not reading when I signed those papers," Jones told Variety. The GoFundMe was set up after Jones lost her job of 32 years due to the pandemic.
