Sacha Baron Cohen shocked audiences into uncontrollable fits of laughter when he wore the now-infamous "mankini" in his comedic magnum opus,& Borat.&

But when a group of six Czech tourists broke out the revealing neon green "swimwear"& in Astana, Kazakhstan, local police were none too amused. Not only were they arrested for "minor hooliganism," but they were each fined $68.&

The O.G. Borat eventually caught wind of the story and offered to pay their dues to the Czech police. Very nice!&

"To my Czech mates who were arrested," Baron Cohen wrote. "Send me your details and proof that it was you, and I'll pay your fine.& &

He even created a Gmail address: "arrestedforwearingyourmankini@gmail.com."

Borats always have each other's backs.&
