Russell Brand claims he was “censored” by YouTube for “relatively minor error”.

Russell Brand claims he was “censored” by YouTube for making a “relatively small mistake” on the platform.

After a video was removed from the video streaming service, Brand has now switched to alternative platform Rumble, which he claims will allow him to speak “more freely”.

“We’ve been officially censored by YouTube,” the 47-year-old claimed in a clip released this week.

“They removed one of our videos for misinformation, but why aren’t major media organizations censored for misinformation in the same way? Is it because YouTube is now part of the mainstream media?”

He said YouTube originally removed his video because it “cited information on official government websites that we misinterpreted.”

However, Brand claims he uploaded an apology video for the “mistake” made, which he has now deleted to reflect YouTube’s decision and avoid the risk of an accidental re-claim.

“YouTube removed our original video, we removed the apology video in case we repeat the claim and apologize for it,” Brand explained.

“We made a mistake, a relatively small mistake in my opinion, and we’re being punished, and to me that looks like censorship.”

Brand will now host an hour-long live stream of Rumble five days a week.

In another video posted to YouTube, Brand hit back at the channel, claiming that mainstream news channels also spread false information and weren’t punished in the same way.

In the video, he references a clip that remains on the platform, where MSNBC‘s Rachel Maddow says ‘the virus stops in every vaccinated person’.

But Brand argued that it was common knowledge that “the vaccine doesn’t stop you from spreading it”.

“Why are independent channels being attacked, censored and shut down while mainstream media channels are being pushed, highlighted and celebrated?” he argued.

Scientists are currently rethinking their strategy to combat future variants of Covid by aiming for a higher level of protection by blocking infections altogether. Russell Brand claims he was “censored” by YouTube for “relatively minor error”.
