The curious timing of the cancellation of Russell Brand.

Let’s open with a disclaimer. A little reminder. This is America and we still believe that people are innocent until proven guilty. Sure, it’s an old-fashioned notion but we still believe it. And it even applies to comedians from other countries like Russell Brand. With that in mind let’s talk about one teeny, little aspect of the accusations about Mr. Brand and that’s the timing. Why now? We found this little snippet on the internet of things: ‘Four women told The Sunday Times and Channel 4’s Dispatches that Brand assaulted them between 2006 and 2013.’ 

Huh. So, 4 women were allegedly assaulted by Russell over a decade ago and for whatever reason they kept it quiet. Even through the famous #MeToo movement, they chose to remain silent. But now, they felt compelled to come forward. Interesting. Let’s ponder that for a moment or 2, shall we? That seems kind of important. Why come forward now? What changed? We’re not saying that this is an attempt to slander and discredit Russell Brand ala the Supreme Court confirmation hearings of Brett Kavanaugh. Oh no, we’d never say that. We just find the timing to be a bit… suspect? And then there’s this video about the charges from Russell Brand himself. So, let’s continue to believe everyone is innocent until proven guilty. Seems like a good thing to do here.

    Ya know. That’s what he gets for speaking truth. I mean, how dare he. Who does he think he is to have an opinion of his own, and share it with the world
