Russell Brand, a renowned comedian, gained widespread recognition through his unreserved stand-up performances during the early 2000s. He also made a name for himself as a presenter on MTV in the United Kingdom. Over time, Brand extended his talents to the world of film, taking on roles as both an actor and a voice actor. As his fame continued to rise, he ventured into the realm of political commentary.

Tavistock Wood Management Agency declared it was dropping Brand as a customer the day the scandal emerged. After he categorically and vehemently denied accusations made against him in 2020, the corporation said it was horribly misled and that he was to blame.

In response to the accusations, Elon Musk stated that he supported the comic. Alex Jones, who also defends Brand, asserts that Brand’s public stance against Big Pharma is what led to the charges.
