We didn't think Sacha Baron Cohen was going to go down without a fight!
Although the actor was reportedly banned from the Oscars after organizers became concerned that he was going to cause problems walking the red carpet as General Aladeen, the character from his new mockumentary, The Dictator, producer Brian Grazer has come forward to welcome him however he'd like to come, as the Academy "respect him as an artist."
Of course, Aladeen took no time at all posting THIS picture (above) with the following message via Twitter:
"VICTORY IS OURS! Today the Mighty Nation of Wadiya triumphed over the Zionist snakes of Hollywood.
"Evil and all those who made Satan their protector were vanquished and driven into the Pacific Sea. What I am trying to say here is that the Academy have surrendered and sent over two tickets and a parking pass! TODAY OSCAR, TOMORROW OBAMA!"
The Academy shouldn't have said anything to begin with. We have an AMAZING feeling that whatever Cohen had planned, it's going to be EVEN CRAZIER now that they gave him all this trouble!
AND WE CAN'T WAIT! LOLz!
