Russell Brand thanks his supporters after “distressing week”

British comedian and actor Russell Brand last night spoke of an “extraordinary and distressing week” in his first public comments since the rape and assault allegations against him became public, but did not address the claims.

“Obviously it’s been an extraordinary and distressing week and I thank you very much for your support and for questioning the information you are being presented with,” he said on a video posted to his YouTube channel, which has 6.64 million subscribers. I need your support now more than ever, more than I ever imagined I would,” he added, reports RTE.

However, he did not comment on the joint investigation conducted by The Times, The Sunday Times and Channel 4 television, in which four women pleaded guilty to rape, sexual abuse and emotional abuse.

Then on Thursday, the woman accused Mr. Brand of exposing himself to her in 2008.

Brand criticized the British government for asking tech companies to take action against him.

He announced that on Monday he would publish a long video condemning what he described as deep state and corporate collusion” and “media corruption and censorship” reports RTE.

In a video released last week, just before this story broke, Brand, 48, denied the allegations against him, which allegedly occurred between 2006 and 2013.

He said his relationships were always “consensual”, even during a period when he admitted he was “very, very promiscuous”.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s official spokesman called the allegations “very serious and concerning,” reports RTE.

Mr Sunak “has been clear there should never be any space for harassment, regardless of where it is found”, he added, reports RTE.

Video-sharing platform YouTube has also demonetized its content.
