Russell Brand Devastates ‘morning Joe’ — Does He Have A Point?
Im not very pop cultured, Im sorry) addressing him in the third person, and at some point calling him Willy? I think? Its unclear what they think theyre doing. And about six minutes in, he commandeers the show and marches off with it, leaving no survivors. (Is this what you all do for a living? he asks, later adding, These people, Im sure, are typically very good at their jobs. Youre conveying news to the people of America? People of America, were going to be okay.)I would liken the hosts to a kitten pouncing on what it assumes is a dazed snake and discovering it has latched onto the tail end of a dragon. Its cringe-inducing. Youre talking about me as if Im not here and as if Im an extraterrestrial, he observes. Never mock someone with a British accent. Thank you for your casual objectification, Brand says, after one of the hosts starts talking about him and his accent in the third person. Another of the hosts, after Brand suggests more serious topics for discussion, goes back to riffing on the comics attire, and Brand cuts in, Thats the problem with current affairs. You forget about whats important and you allow the agenda to be decided by superficial information. Russell Brand Takes Over, Dominating The MJ Set the chyron beneath him reads.

By Chiderah Monde / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Sunday, August 4, 2013, 1:02 PM Comment Steve Granitz/WireImage Russell Brand made an off-color joke about how he considered becoming a monk after getting divorced from ex-wife Katy Perry. In terms of a sex-life, being a monk is not that different than being married, he said.

Russell Brand Kicked Out of GQ Awards For Pointing Out Hugo Boss Made Nazi Uniforms
This Deep Read More While speaking at GQs Man of The Year Awards, Russell Brand thought itd be hilarious to joke about the fact that Hugo Boss, the events sponsor, made a fortune selling uniforms to the Nazis. Which it was unless youre an editor for GQ whose corporate sponsor you (accurately) linked to one of the most historic genocides in the history of man. Via The Daily Mail : While on stage, Brand told the gathered celebrities and politicians, If anyone knows a bit about history and fashion, you know it was Hugo Boss who made uniforms for the Nazis. He then added, with less than subtle irony, But they looked fucking fantastic, lets face it, while they were killing people on the basis of their religion and sexuality. Shortly afterwards, Brand was kicked out by the magazines editor, Dylan Jones. According to the comedians Twitter feed, the two men exchanged angry words, with Jones saying, What you did was very offensive to Hugo Boss. Brand replied, What Hugo Boss did was very offensive to the Jews. First off, BAH-ZING! Second off, probably my favorite part of this whole ordeal is when the Daily Mail attempts to point out that Hugo Boss wasnt exactly an active Nazi, he just joined the party to make an insane profit from Herr Fuhrers practically innocent little Blitzkrieg and took advantage of the forced labor from occupied countries who then occasionally died from the work conditions. Which FOR THE RECORD! were better than others. Its not like he was out there gassing Jews with a tiny mustache. In fact, as the Daily Mail reports, Hugo Boss was able to successfully appeal his post-war status to the lesser category of follower as opposed to an active promoter of Nazism which was surely based on his fine character and not substantial wealth. Politics just doesnt work that way. Oh no no no, balderdash.
