With greater finesse than Palin, who called Baron Cohen a "piece of s**t" in her social media rant on the same topic, Walsh acknowledged that Baron Cohen is a amusing comedian before admonishing him for "mocking a disabled veteran" and encouraging a boycott of the Showtime network.

She wrote: "Yup - we were duped".

"I'm excited and ready to explore the nuanced conversations and heated debates that all genders are having, both online and in private to make sense of how the hell we got here, and most importantly; how do we move forward in the most effective way?" "Feel better now?" Palin wrote on Facebook.

The news comes one day after former GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin went public with a story that Baron Cohen posed as a wounded US veteran in an interview with her. Walsh had plenty to about that, Baron Cohen and more in a tweetstorm late Monday. But she says Cohen had "heavily disguised himself" as a disabled United States veteran in a wheelchair. "Truly sick", said Palin.

Mrs. Palin ended her message by informing Mr. Cohen that her daughter thinks he is "a piece of ****". Palin claims she was led to believe that she would be doing a legitimate interview with a "disabled veteran" who in reality was Cohen in disguise.

Sacha Baron Cohen has done his best to avoid the spotlight and hide behind the characters he plays for nearly 20 years, but that may be about to change.

Matt Drudge, editor of the Drudge Report, tweeted out a list of names of the other public figures Cohen has supposedly pranked for the show, including Sen.

Let's face it: former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as John McCain's running mate in the 2008 Presidential election was a great idea in the moment that wound up biting us in the butt. and has continued to bite us in the butt ever since. This time for CBS/SHOWTIME.

Who Is America? premiers this Sunday July 15, with episodes streaming on Stan. She also threw down some fightin' words.

It wasn't until this week that the news broke that Cohen's new show was premiering, prompting Palin to realize that she had been "duped" by the comedian.

It remains to be seen whether Cohen's new series can replicate the pop culture phenomenon of his earlier works, including the movie "Borat" and his hit program "Da Ali G Show".

Donating the proceeds from "Who Is America" to a veterans' charity might be a good start to making things right.
