Russell Brand has long been known as a progressive commentator and a vegan activist, but he has changed his focus in the last couple of years.
The British celebrity has been challenging the radical Left agenda and calling out their insane ideology.
Now, out of the blue, he’s under attack by a mob of allegations of sexual assault, but the firebrand influencer still has support.
Russell Brand finds himself under attack following campaign against “the news and all its corruption”
Russell Brand was long revered by the Left for his liberal ideologies and trendy support of veganism, but the COVID pandemic shifted his perspective.
Now Brand is known for pushing back on the media narrative and speaking truth to his audience—whom he refers to as “awakening wonders.”
The influencer says that his style is to “critique, attack, and undermine the news and all its corruption.” But his voice and opinions are now under what seems to be a coordinated attack on his character in an effort to shut him down.
Brand calls the attacks “egregious” and “aggressive.”
Brand is attempting to dispel allegations that he says allegedly happened when he was still part of the “mainstream” media.
Reports have become widespread in recent weeks that he sexually assaulted multiple women.
The media wants him canceled and prosecuted for what he says were “absolutely always consensual.”
Brand explained it all in a viral video on social media last week.
Brand says his transparency has “metastasized” into these “egregious” attacks on his character
“As I have written about extensively in my books, I was very very promiscuous. Now during that time of promiscuity, the relationships that I had were absolutely always consensual,” Brand said.
The influencer says that he was “always transparent” about his relationships, and perhaps he was “too transparent.”
Brand promised that he has maintained his transparency, and it won’t stop with the recent reports of sexual assault. He says his transparency has “metastasized” into these allegations.

According to Brand, people should be skeptical of the media, “particularly when we’ve seen coordinated media attacks before.”
Citing attacks against Joe Rogan over his use of Ivermectin, he says that we should all be aware at this point of what is going on.
“There is a serious and concerted agenda to control” speech online, and he sees it as a very dangerous effort.
Brand sees this as a “coordinated attack” and asked his audience to “stay awake…and please stay free.”
Brand’s video was shared over forty thousand times and was viewed by 68 million people.
GB News anchor adds context after she posted that Brand is a “hero”
One viewer was an anchor on GB News, and she took the topic to air earlier this week to defend him.
Beverley Turner, an anchor on GB News, shared the video saying that Brand was “being attacked” by “establishment media” because they “don’t know what to do with the fact that you have 6 million subscribers & generate autonomous, knowing, and original content.”
You are being attacked @rustyrockets
Establishment media don’t know what to do with the fact that you have 6million subscribers & generate autonomous, knowing and original content.
You are welcome on my @GBNEWS show anytime.
We are mainstream media. But we are not… https://t.co/uW6xfftAdf

Turner invited Brand to appear on her show anytime, stating unequivocally that they are “mainstream” but “not establishment” media.
The anchor continued in her post to describe him as a “hero” and finished the post with a heart emoji.
Turner’s comments earned her an argument during a segment with her co-anchor Andrew Pierce.
On GB News we put free speech first – even when we disagree with each other. @toryboypierce furiously clashes with @beverleyturner over a tweet in which she called Russell Brand a ‘hero’ after an investigation uncovered accusations of rape and sexual assault. pic.twitter.com/TlCY0gGc7a

Pierce told Turner that she was shameful and an “idiot” for the comments.
The anchor stood up for Brand and said that she was “confident” in that there was no smoking gun.
