Russell Brand Claps Back At ‘Very Serious Allegations’ Against Him [VIDEO]

Russell Brand, popularly known for his progressive podcast, took to Twitter to issue a passionate denial of “very serious accusations” being made against him. In the video, he referred to messages sent from a mainstream newspaper and broadcast television outlet that contained “a litany of extremely egregious and aggressive attacks.”

Brand quickly addressed the rumors that the accusations pertained to his past promiscuity, a topic that he has addressed “extensively in [his] books.” The former actor and comedian issued a strongly worded statement labeling all of the accusations as “absolutely false.”

The denial comes just ahead of the airing of a Dispatches report from British news outlet Channel 4, which is set to feature some “shocking” news about a well-known celebrity. Channel 4’s anchor Krishan Guru-Murthy further fueled the speculations, when he tweeted a picture of the TV listing for the program, only to be ordered to delete it shortly after due to the sensitive nature of the report.

In his video rebuttal, Brand remarked on the potential of a “coordinated attack” against him, referencing a similar situation with another celebrity. “We’ve seen coordinated media attacks before like with Joe Rogan when he dared to take a medicine that the mainstream media didn’t approve of and we saw a spate of headlines from media outlets across the world using the same language,” he said.

The accusations against Brand have left him questioning who is behind them and what their agenda is. “To see that transparency metastasized into something criminal, that I absolutely deny, makes me question: is there another agenda at play?” he stated.

In the end, Brand declared with confidence that all of his relationships have always been consensual and that he would not be swayed by “astonishing” and “baroque attacks.” “I believe in truth and honesty, so I wanted to be transparent about this,” he proclaimed.


At the time of publication, Brand’s video denying the allegations had already been viewed over two and a half million times. With the Dispatches report set to air on Saturday, the former actor and comedian’s words may have been more powerful than ever: “I absolutely refute these allegations.”
