The politician who is known for her opposition to LGBT rights claims that the comedian pranked her forcing to say something hateful and homophobic and it drove her crazy, because even though she is not LGBT-supportive, making hateful remarks is unacceptable. The interview was reportedly filmed in November, but Palin is speaking out ahead of the show’s debut on July 15. Cohen hit back in an in-character statement as ‘Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr., PhD’. In a joking manner he hanked her for always telling the truth but now he feels hit by a grenade of her lie. ““You used to hunt the most dangerous animals in the country, like wolves and people on welfare. So why hunt a fine citizen journalist like myself? I DEMAND an APOLOGY. Dr. Billy Wayne Ruddick. Jr.” The letter is linked to a conspiracy website that Cohen appears to have created as part of his “undercover” character work. Publicity for show claims that Cohen spent a year undercover filming – though getting Sarah Palin to say something homophobic can usually be done by standing near her for five minutes with a microphone.
