Watch: Sacha Baron Cohen escorted from Oscars red carpet after Kim Jong Il stunt

That spilled ashes stunt didn’t go down well with security…

AFTER HIS ACADEMY Awards invitation was recently revoked and then reinstated by the event’s organisers, Sacha Baron Cohen turned up at the Kodak Theater yesterday in costume to promote his new film The Dictator.

Cohen not only arrived in the Gaddafi-reminiscent costume of his Dictator character, he also succeeded in tipping an urn of Kim Jong Il’s ‘ashes’ over presenter Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet.

Cue burly security guards stage right and left:
