‘I support Russell Brand’: Elon Musk goes on record, insists actor ‘is not evil’

With an eye toward canceling canceling, two of the biggest names on X spoke out against allegations levied against Russell Brand, including billionaire Elon Musk.

“Enough is enough.”

Friday, the actor, comedian and sociopolitical commentator released a video preemptively decrying “some very serious allegations that I absolutely refute.” The following day, The Times, The Sunday Times and Channel 4 reported claims from four women, one who said she was 16 at the time, accusing Brand of sexually assaulting them between 2006 and 2013.

Following his initial reaction to the podcast host’s video, wherein he spoke to corporate media’s disdain for individuals like Brand and said, “Of course. They don’t like competition,” Musk furthered his support with more concise posts.

Reacting to Ian Miles Cheong rattling off the attempted cancelations of Tucker Carlson, Joe Rogan and Jordan Peterson, each for seeking open dialogue, the tech entrepreneur wrote, “No more canceling. Enough is enough.”

Another account shared Brand’s video on X and lamented the “smear campaign” and how similar efforts only stood to harm actual victims while speaking to the actor’s admitted promiscuity.

As previously reported, the comedian’s video spoke to his being contacted by the aforementioned outlets to which he himself said, “These allegations pertain to the time when I was working in the mainstream, when I was in the newspapers all the time, when I was in the movies, and as I’ve written about extensively in my books, I was very, very promiscuous.”

“…and I’m being transparent about it now as well, and to see that transparency metastasized into something criminal that I absolutely deny makes me question, is there another agenda at play?”

Musk voiced, “I support Russell Brand. That man is not evil.”

So too did support come from former Fox News host Tucker Carlson who emphasized the original video and remarked, “Criticize the drug companies, question the war in Ukraine, and you can be pretty sure this is going to happen.”

“Sure seems that way!” opined Musk.

Seemingly further adding to Brand’s counter-allegations thrust at the media Today News Africa White House correspondent Simon Ateba shared a video posted by investigative journalist Sulaiman Ahmed the featured a woman who claimed she had been contacted by the same outlets that ran the allegations against Brand.

“A woman says she was contacted by a journalist to discuss an alleged sexual assault by Russell Brand. However, because she provided positive feedback about him, the mainstream media did not include her in the sensational documentary,” Ateba captioned the post.

That woman included a screengrab of a message purported to be from a reporter with The Times who explained “We’re currently working on a project in collaboration with Channel 4…”

“They weren’t going to use my story because it didn’t fit the narrative for their documentary because he wasn’t an a**hole to me,” she alleged.

The outspoken support from Musk included a pile on from others who were both pleased that the billionaire was being vocal about the suspected attempted cancelation as well as to show their own solidarity with Brand.
