YouTube has suspended Russell Brand from making money on the platform for "violating" its "creator responsibility policy." The decision was made in order to "protect" its users, a spokesperson for the video streaming company said on Tuesday.

The move follows the allegations of rape, sexual assault, and coercive behavior made by four women over the weekend. The allegations pertain to the period between 2006 and 2013.

Brand has denied all of the claims, using his YouTube channel to share a video in which he said his relationships have been“always consensual.” "If a creator's off-platform behaviour harms our users, employees or ecosystem, we take action," said a YouTube spokesperson told the BBC.

In the past few years Brand, who made his name as a stand-up comedian and TV presenter in the U.K. before moving to Hollywood and starring on movies such as Forgetting Sarah Marshall, has pivoted to streaming.
