Russell Brand has complained of enduring an “extraordinary and distressing week” after being accused of rape, s****l a*sault and psychological abuse.
In a video posted on his multiple social media channels On Friday, the comedian thanked his supporters for “questioning reports that [they] were presented” recently.
However, it is unclear what “information” he was referring to when he posted his video.
Brand later spoke out about the censorship, as he had just been suspended from making money on YouTube due to these allegations.
“You probably know that the UK government has asked big tech platforms to censor our online content. Some online platforms have complied with this request,” he began before explaining that the online security bill censors content on the web.
“I also don’t imagine you’ve heard of the Trust Information Initiative and now, as is often the case when a word like trust is used in an acronym to describe an unelected body, trust is the last thing you should do. offer,” he continued.
“The Trusted News Initiative is a collaboration between big tech organizations and traditional media to target, patrol, strangle and shut down independent media organizations.”
He then encouraged fans to follow him on Rumble and watch his show on a platform that encourages free speech.
Brand’s choice of words came after four women spoke out last week, claiming the 48-year-old s****lly a*saulted them at the height of his career.
The incidents, believed to have taken place between 2006 and 2013, were the subject of an explosive article in the Sunday Times as well as a Channel 4 Dispatchers special.
One of the accusers claimed the actor raped her – allegedly without a “condom” – “against a wall” in his Los Angeles home in 2012.

She allegedly confronted Brand about the situation via text message, telling him that “When a girl says[s] NO, that means no.
To which he reportedly replied: “Really sorry. »Screenshots of the alleged texts were published in the report. The woman also attached medical records showing she visited a rape center the day after the alleged incident.
Meanwhile, a second woman claimed she was just 16 when she was allegedly a*saulted by Brand, then 31.
She claimed she and the “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” actor were in an “emotionally abusive and controlling” three-month relationship that ultimately ended after she allegedly discovered him cheating on her with another female.
However, before this, Brand allegedly “forced his penis down her throat” until she was gagging. She would have had to hit him to make him stop, according to the report.
Two other women also shared incidents in which Brand, who was married to Katy Perry from 2010 to 2012, allegedly s****lly a*saulted them.
However, Brand vehemently denied these allegations even before the report was released.
“Amid this litany of astonishing, somewhat baroque attacks, are very serious allegations that I absolutely refute,” he said in a video message, before a*serting that all relationships were “consensual” .

However, since the publication of the explosive report, several old disturbing videos of the comedian talking about rape and minor children have resurfaced online.
In a 2007 clip from his BBC radio show, “The Russell Brand Show,” the comedian told a young woman that she should throw a s*x-themed 16th birthday party because she was reaching the legal age of consent in the UK.
He also suggested she make it a masked ball because it’s “erotic but in a repressed way, suitable for a 16-year-old girl.”
In another shocking 2013 interview, Brand said he “raped someone once” and then “k**led” her.
In the same interview, which has since been removed from the internet, Brand also joked about ancient Greeks having s*x with children.
More recently, another woman came forward, claiming that Brand had previously exposed himself to her while they were at work.
The woman, who chose to remain anonymous, claimed that Brand “took his flaccid penis out of his hand and served it to [her] like you were going to serve someone food” while allegedly cornering her in a bathroom.
