“Shame On You”: GB News Presenters Angrily Clash Live On Air Over Russell Brand Allegations
18.09.2023 - 12:33
Fresh off being wrapped on knuckles by UK regulators this morning, GB News saw a pair of its presenters angrily clash over the sexual assault allegations surrounding Russell Brand.
In a video posted online by the network, Andrew Pierce and Bev Turner exchange furious words on the Britain’s Newsroom program as they expressed opinions on the allegations from a joint Channel 4 Dispatches, Times and Sunday Times investigation that presenter and actor Brand had committed several sexual offenses against four women.
In the heated exchange, Pierce takes co-presenter Turner to task over a message sent on Saturday morning on X (see it below) she sent supporting Brand, calling him a “hero.”
The message — released before the newspaper report and Channel 4 program but after Brand released a pre-emptive statement denying the allegations — claimed he was “being attacked” and Turner that the Being Sarah Marshall star was “welcome on my @GBNews show anytime.”
“Bev, that is shameful. You have dismissed, in one tweet, a four-year investigation by The Sunday Times, The Times and Channel 4,” says Pierce after reading out the message and noting that the allegations include the grooming of a 16-year-old girl and the rape of two women.
“Don’t you think before you say someone is a hero, you should establish whether these very serious allegations are true,” says Pierce.
You are being attacked @rustyrockets
Establishment media don't know what to do with the fact that you have 6million subscribers & generate autonomous, knowing and original content.
You are welcome on my @GBNEWS show anytime.
We are mainstream media. But we are not… https://t.co/uW6xfftAdf
Turner then claims to have spoken to “several sources” close to Brand and The Times to back up
