Sarah Palin is the latest one to join the list of people who are offended by comedian Sacha Baron Cohen's "weird" sense of humor.

In a Facebook post, Sarah Palin, The former vice presidential candidate, addressed her issue with Cohen claiming that she and her daughter were apparently "duped" into participating in an interview for Cohen's Showtime series "Who Is America?"

Referring to his humor, Sarah termed it as "evil, exploitive" and "sick."

In her post, she revealed that she got a call via a speakers bureau who explained to her how participating in the show could be an "opportunity" for her to honor American Veterans and to contribute to a "Showtime historical documentary." She further added that, as she arrived, she was greeted by someone who she presumed was Cohen, "heavily disguised...as a disabled US Veteran, fake wheelchair and all."

She said, "I sat through a long ‘interview' full of Hollywoodism's [sic] disrespect and sarcasm - but finally had enough and literally, physically removed my mic and walked out," Palin wrote. "The disrespect of our US military and middle-class Americans via Cohen's foreign commentaries under the guise of interview questions was perverse ... Mock politicians and innocent public personalities all you want, if that lets you sleep at night, but HOW DARE YOU mock those who have fought and served our country. Truly sick."

Following the bizarre incident, she challenged Showtime and CBS to donate the "proceeds" of the show to "a charitable group that actually supports and respects American Vets.

In the past, many people have spoken about how "rude" and "not funny" they find Cohen to be.
