Comedian, actor, and podcast host Russell Brand has responded to the accusation that he sexually assaulted four women. The allegations come from a collaborative news report done by The Sunday Times, The Times, and Channel 4 Dispatches. It is not quite clear what the motivation of these news outlets is. Women who had connections to Brand were found by journalists and asked questions. Four of these women returned negative and/or criminally accusatory comments about Brand. Such an investigation would normally be conducted by police.
Russell Brand immediately took to X, formally known as Twitter, to issue a response. He categorically denied the allegations and stated that this may be a coordinated news media attack on him due to his popularity in the alternative news media space.
