Oscars 2012: Sacha Baron Cohen causes havoc on red carpet, our jaws drop

Sacha Baron Cohen has caused absolute havoc on the Oscars 2012 red carpet by pouring the 'ashes' of Kim Jong-il over Ryan Seacrest.

When we heard Sacha was heading to the awards in character as The Dictator we knew that there would probably be some comedy but even our jaws dropped at this moment.

However, we weren't expecting him to turn up with a fake urn filled with pancake mix and dump it all over Ryan Seacrest, host of E! News, during their interview on the red carpet.

Ryan didn't look the slightest bit impressed, as he tried to dust himself off before someone handed him a towel.

Sacha Baron Cohen was then escorted off the red carpet by security and within minutes his name was trending on Twitter.

Despite all of his antics as Borat and Bruno, Sacha never fails to cause controversy. We wonder whether he'll be allowed back into watch the awards?
