Gypsies Trying to Censor Borat

We read:

"A German group representing Roma interests has filed a suit to try to stop British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen showing his Borat film in Germany....

"We are accusing (Cohen) of defamation and inciting violence against Sinti and Roma (gypsies)," Mr Knudsen said...

The group said it had filed a complaint to prosecutors over the film, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, saying it treated violence and discrimination against Roma peoples as acceptable behavior.


Surely this protest is itself defamatory to gypsies. Does it not show gypsies as having no sense of humor?
