Russell Brand doesn’t care that advertising partners and YouTube are turning away after the rape allegations. He has long since found a digital stage somewhere else: in the parallel universe of the right-wing video platform Rumble.
The British comedian and presenter Russell Brand has been facing serious allegations for a week. According to media reports, Brand is said to have sexually assaulted or raped at least four women between 2006 and 2013. There are criminal charges. The police are investigating.
Brand denies the crimes he is accused of. Among other things, in a current YouTube video that only has the short title “So…”. “It was an extraordinary week,” says Brand. And then he thanks his followers for their support. And for “questioning what information is shown to you.”
