Russell Brand Says He Has Been ‘Censored By YouTube’ for Video Discussing COVID, Now Moving to Rumble (VIDEO)

Russell Brand says YouTube censored his popular channel over his discussions about COVID-19 — so he is now moving to their competitor Rumble.

Brand called out the tech giant for censoring individuals for getting COVID information wrong, despite the mainstream media doing the same thing without being censored.

“We have been officially censored by YouTube,” Brand said in a video posted to his Twitter account. “They took down one of our videos for misinformation, but why are big media organizations not censored for misinformation in the same way? Is it because YouTube are part of the mainstream media now?”

Brand also posted a longer video to YouTube explaining what happened and why he believes YouTube is now part of the mainstream media.

Brand added, “We made an apology video, we’ve taken that down as well, YouTube took down our original video, we’ve taken down the apology video because in case we reiterate the claim while apologizing for it.”

In a big win for platforms that support free speech, Brand said that he is now moving his show exclusively to Rumble — a YouTube alternative that has been popular with conservatives that are censored on other platforms.

Brand will now be streaming on Rumble every weekday at noon EST.
