Russell Brand Goes on Second Nazi Rant, Tells Fans to “Shut the F*ck Up"

English comedian, Russell Brand, refuses to back down after last week’s Nazi/Hugo Boss debacle, even if it means losing fans in the process.

If you missed it, Brand was physically removed from the GQ Men of the Year Awards after calling out sponsor Hugo Boss’s Nazi ties during his acceptance speech for the Oracle Award. If you haven't seen it yet, feel free to do so now:

Now, Brand is taking out his frustration on American fans, screaming obscenities at them after arriving an hour late to his own show.

Once he began the comedy show at San Diego’s Balboa Theatre, Brand renewed his attack on Hugo Boss, saying “I’ve been in a little trouble in England with what I said recently. It’s a true fact that Hugo Boss made the outfits for the Nazis.”

The previous comment sounds pretty innocent, but Brand goes on to call Hitler a “right little arsehole” while goose-stepping around the stage, and then tells a woman in the audience to “Shut the f*ck up” after she interrupted him.

Brand went on ask security to remove other fans that were interrupting his routine, announcing, “I’ve had a long flight, please let me do my job.”

The audience members were left with a sour taste in their mouths, with one saying, “It was all very weird and left us feeling very uncomfortable.”
