Russell Brand's Awards Show Speech About Hugo Boss's Nazi Links Is Brilliant
"This is not designed for sincerity, this environment." Russell Brand didn't get the memo about being nice to sponsors, apparently.
Russell Brand was given the "Oracle" award at the GQ Awards last week. So he gave a (very sweary) acceptance speech.
During the three minutes of the speech, he laid into London mayor Boris Johnson for joking about chemical weapons in Syria, suggested "GQ" stood for "genocide quips", and reminded everybody at length that the award show's sponsor Hugo Boss made uniforms for the Nazis.
Reports suggest that he was asked to leave the show's after-party as a result of his speech.
