No more canceling. Enough is enough.
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) September 17, 2023
Reformed neo-Nazi and former best friend of Andy Warski (who also tried to get me banned from Twitter by repeatedly tweeting directly to Elon, even though I had no problem with him), Ian Miles Chong, tweeted that Russell Brand is getting canceled.
Elon responded that people should not be canceled anymore.
The issue is, Brand is not actually getting “canceled,” he’s getting lynched.
He’s going to go to prison forever if he doesn’t flee to Russia immediately.
The latest news today is that the British cops say they’ve received a rape report from a different girl. The Times says they’ve received many more claims. The Indian Prime Minister, Rishi, had his spokesman release a statement about Brand (!).
Max Blain, spokesman for Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, said the claims were “very serious and concerning.” Conservative legislator Caroline Nokes, who chairs the House of Commons Women and Equalities Committee, urged police in both Britain and the United States to investigate the “incredibly shocking” allegations.
“This merits and needs a criminal investigation, because for too long we have seen men — and the perpetrators of these sorts of crimes are almost invariably men — not being held to account for their behaviors and their actions,” she told BBC radio.
This latest AP “Brand Roundup” article actually admits that the women are only making these claims because he’s popular on the internet, speaking out against the vaccine and such:
Supporters of Brand asked why the allegations were being made years after the alleged incidents. The women said that they only felt ready to tell their stories after being approached by reporters, with some citing Brand’s newfound prominence as an online wellness influencer as a factor in their decision to speak.
In recent years Brand has largely disappeared from mainstream media but has built up a large following online with videos mixing wellness and conspiracy theories. His YouTube channel, which has more than 6 million subscribers, has featured COVID-19 conspiracy theories, vaccine misinformation and interviews with controversial broadcasters including Tucker Carlson and Joe Rogan.
It’s the only thing on British TV right now. These clips are insane.

Maybe this is the escalation of “canceling,” where they just throw you in prison. But that’s not how the term has generally been used perviously.
As far as I know, Russell still has not fled the country.
He’s going to wish he would have.
