Read on to hear what the actor had to say...

Now, Sacha Baron Cohen is certainly one of Hollywood's more controversial figures...

Getty

And we all know why!

The London-born actor portrayed one of the world's most comical figures...

And that is none other than Borat, who first emerged onto our screens in 2006.

The movie, which takes on the full title of Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, took on a documentary-style format...

And it involved Baron Cohen dressing up a local from Kazakhstan and fooling us folk over here in America into believing people from this country are completely backward.

Borat's character is supposedly the "sixth most famous man in Kazakhstan"...

And during his journalistic visit to the United States, he repeatedly insulted the people of Central Asia and made a lot of unwitting strangers feel very uncomfortable.

The movie was, as Borat would say, a great success...

And Baron Cohen's ridiculous character soon became a household name all around the world.

Of course, Borat was a notoriously offensive character...

Everyman Pictures

And the portrayal of the Kazakhstan-native painted a very bad picture of the Asian country.

Not that this phased Baron Cohen, of course...

Because he's absolutely no stranger to offensive and stereotypical characters! The actor has stirred a lot of controversy over the years with movies such as Ali G Indahouse (2002), Bruno (2009), and The Dictator (2012).

The actor will always be known for these controversial characters and roles...

But it seems as if it's time for them to be canceled once and for all.

Baron Cohen was honored with the Comedic Genius award during Sunday night's MTV Movie & TV Awards...

And in a hilarious sketch, he brought along all of his most iconic characters - Ali G, Borat Sagdiyev, Bruno Gehard, and Admiral General Aladeen - which fans simply loved.​

Following an introduction by Seth Rogen, who applauded the British satirist for "revealing the truth about the human condition by utilizing brilliant wit and sharp, insightful commentary"...

Baron Cohen and the gang accepted - and fought over - the award via a pre-recorded speech.

"Thank you, Prince Harry," the Kazakh broadcaster began: "I'm very excited to be on this brand-new music television channel."

"I'm very happy to be accepting this cup of gold teeth instead of Sacha Baron Cohen and will put it in our national museum along with other treasure we have confiscated from Jews," Borat continued. "High five!"

Then, chavvish celebrity correspondent Ali G entered the frame.

"We should be accepting this award, not you. I was the original gangster. The OG," he interrupted

The well-acquainted pair briefly caught up over Borat's return in the acclaimed Subsequent Moviefilm as Ali G complained that it was "wack."

"The only good bit was in that hotel room when that fly honey in the blue dress was about to be boned by Rudi Guli-Andrews. Then you come in and ruin it," Ali G said - a clear reference to Rudy Giuliani's unwilling appearance in the movie.

Then, Baron Cohen himself arrived to take what was rightfully his...

​But not before dragging Ali G for being a "white suburban kid who's co-opting black culture."

"I created you," the actor said, to which Ali G responded with, "You created me? That is typical white privilege innit?"

Baron Cohen then gave his own speech, thanking his "millions of fans" for voting for him.

"I'd be nothing without you. I'm so humbled by this. I'm just a human being creating complex nuanced characters — sophisticated tools to expose …" he said humbly before being interrupted by none other than his fabulous Austrian alter-ego, Bruno.

"Did somebody say they want me to expose my sophisticated tool?" Bruno said cheekily.

"You're ruining this," the actor then said. "You can't say that stuff unless you're exposing homophobia with real people."

Before Bruno can go on to say anything more offensive, Baron Cohen concludes his speech with:

YouTube / MTV

"Before anyone else does it, I am officially canceling myself - I was actually really looking forward to this after losing the Oscar. You can f****** keep it" - a clear reference to his 2021 Academy Awards nomination for Best Supporting Actor in The Trial of the Chicago 7, as well as Best Adapted Screenplay for the Borat sequel - both of which Cohen lost.
