Shouty bearded troublemaker Russell 'Dinkle' Brand has resurfaced after all that bother over telephones and so on. To the fury of the press, who are appalled by him being alive - and not only that, but JUST YARDS AWAY FROM CHILDREN.
Hang on, this is a shit comedian, not a pedalo. Why all the fuss?
Who would want their children to be pictured with Russell Brand?
I wouldn't. Unless they were stabbing him in the eyes.
The disgraced comic's two young guests seemed delighted with the attention last night as the comedian made his first UK public appearance since the furore surrounding his prank call to actor Andrew Sachs.
Sensible enough, and at least they didn't ring up Mrs Sachs this time to ask for her opinion, which I imagine would be a much more a polite form of 'Fuck off, you parasitic motherfuckers'. Good idea from Brand to deflect the shouts from passers by of "Piss off you weird little goblin man" and "Wurrrrrgh you're not a tremendously good stand-up comedian" and so on and so forth.
Readers pitch in with their views, many of which are refreshingly "shut the fuck up, insane Mail twatfaces" in nature:
For goodness sake give it up with the Russell-bashing! You may not like Russell Brand and he may occasionally speak out of turn to grown-ups but there is no question that he is not a delightful and responsible fellow around children. He has often given his time to children's charities and has never been anything but gentle and generous around kids. To imply anything else is unwarranted and mean-spirited.
To be fair there are some gushingly bad "I luv u Russell innit" comments too, but:
Why wouldn't you let your children pose for a picture with Russell Brand, he's not a child murderer!! For goodness sake, get a grip people!
I would have no objection at all.
My two daughters (40 and 36) would be delighted to accompany Russell Brand to any Premiere!
Of course I would have to be their chaperone!!! Whoo hoo!
Anyone else feeling a bit queasy?
To answer the headline.....i assume kids would want to be in a pic with him because he's in a kids movie and they dont read the Mail and act like sheep?
Ha ha. Would never get anything like that under Littlejohn's column! But we can always try...
