  • Sacha Baron Cohen says he and guest O.J. Simpson are 'ladykillers' on Who Is America? finale

From accused child molester Roy Moore being scanned with a "pedophile detector" to former Sheriff Joe Arpaio saying he "may" accept oral sex from President Donald Trump, British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen's provocative Showtime series "Who Is America?" has had some really uncomfortable moments. The first season came to an end last night, and Cohen says Who is America season 2 is not going to happen.

In the segment, which Deadline claims was filmed using hidden cameras, Simpson sits down for an interview with Gio Monaldo, an Italian billionaire playboy and fashion photographer played by Baron Cohen in prosthetics and a ponytail.

Describing Simpson as "an American hero and women's rights activist", Monaldo spoke with The Juice in Las Vegas. For this particular installment, Cohen disguises himself as Gio Monaldo in order to sit down with former National Football League player, actor, and convicted robber, O.J. As far as he knows, he's just murdered someone - and all he can manage to say afterward is, "I've never participated in someone's death".

After Christina left the room, Simpson told Monaldo that she was "gorgeous". As he attempts to explain who Simpson is to her, he mimics a stabbing motion, causing her to laugh in recognition. Simpson, arguably America's most notorious criminal, all while disguised as character Gio Monaldo.

"I'd have to introduce you in the afterlife", Simpson says. "No, I didn't kill nobody", Simpson said through more laughs.

"Ah, I didn't either", Monaldo chuckled.

"Cut cord extra long - oh too long", Simpson said, playing along.

On the season finale, Cohen, in character as Gio, a European TV host who has a show about the rich and famous, jokes with Simpson that the two of them were both "ladykillers".

"Hey, hey, hey, I didn't get away with nothing", Simpson replied emphatically. And who could forget how he gave Georgia state lawmaker Jason Spencer a platform to spectacularly go down in flames by exposing his bare ass on television and participating in a "training exercise" that involved him yelling "I'll touch you with my buttocks" and "I'll make you a homosexual!"
