Katy Perry wrote a crappy song about him. He took the high road and did not comment even when Howard Stern played the song for him live on the air.
Yeah such a nice guy, like when he got himself and Jonathon Ross fired from BBC Radio by calling another actor to brag about having sex with his granddaughter (calling him not once, but twice in fact) then playing the tapes back on the public airwaves... Hell even in this "interview" he couldn't "take the high road" because he can't avoid being a misogynistic asshat a couple times. That's not just my opinion, even the Guardian (whom Brand has even done work for) wrote an article about it...
All I see in that clip is a round table of morons, all of whom think they are smarter than they actually are, that are incapable of having a constructive conversation on anything really.
And we in the public sometimes have an issue with putting celebrities on some kind of automatically intelligent pedestal simply for voicing a like-minded opinion. Yes Brand "destroyed" these MSNBC talking heads - my god they may never work in television again! /sarcasm. Don't get me wrong I basically hate all things MSNBC (and most 24 hr news network stuff too), and yes they were obviously being idiots as well, but I don't see any reason to elevate Brand's comments as something special. They bullied him (at least passive-aggresively) and he pushed back but nothing of any substance was said.
You will have to forgive me for not caring about the opinions of a drug-addict/alcoholic/hothead/criminal comedian/actor with a range below that of Keanu Reeves and a cancelled FX talk show. I like the part where he tries to tell everyone what's important and what's superficial, yet basically his entire presence in the media and career so far has fallen into the latter category.
