Usually politicians wait until they’re actually in office before creating a scandal like this!
Nevertheless, Russell Brand, who was talking like a potential Prime Minister candidate one minute but running his mouth the next, is once again in some hot water!
The comedian and former hubby of Katy Perry was speaking at prestigious Cambridge University last night to a crowd of more than 1,300. The evening was all just a jolly good time at first - Russell even brought up Harry Styles!
But then Brand shouted out an anti-gay slur at the audience!
Russell reportedly called a group of students, “Harry Potter p**fs” and then told them to “shut up.”
The outburst was met with cheers and laughter by most of the crowd. But a Cambridge Student Union LGBT rep Charlie Bell commented in the school’s newspaper that he hardly found what Russell said funny.
