I feel the same way about Russell Brand as I do about Jimmy Carr: both are too intelligent to believe the misogynistic bullshit they spout. They do it because they want to; because they believe that women aren’t really human.
Google the terms “Russell Brand misogyny” and you will see literally thousands of hits detailing the disgusting misogynistic drivel that Brand spouts daily. These are some of the highlights:
- Russell Brand prank calls a rape crisis centre live during his show
- That prank call with Jonathon Ross
- Russell Brand pathetic diatribe on Margaret Thatcher
- If Only Russell Brand could use his cleverness for more than humiliation
- Divorces wife Katy Perry via text
- Forces a female member of staff on his movie set to show him her breasts [via Tricia Lowt]
UPDATE: This is a brilliant take down of the Great White Man Syndrome in Salon and another brilliant takedown by Joan Smith
