Russell Brand is going to need some money for lawyers soon, but he certainly won’t be getting it from YouTube… As Perezcious readers have likely heard by now, the controversial comedian has been accused of some pretty disturbing things over the past few days… From sexual assault, rape, and emotional abuse allegations from MULTIPLE women — including one who was just 16 at the time — to some rather unsavory interviews popping up from back in the day that don’t necessarily help his innocent plea.

We’re definitely witnessing the beginning of his very public downfall. And it looks like some major companies are beginning to distance themselves from him.

But YouTube isn’t the only platform taking action… On Tuesday, the BBC announced they are removing some of the Forgetting Sarah Marshall star’s content from their platform as it now “falls below public expectations.” They wrote in a statement: Obviously he’s been a guest on a great many shows over the years.

The outlet noted that as of now, an episode of comedy quiz show QI and a Joe Wicks podcast, which both feature Russell, have been removed.
