Last week, actor and podcaster, Russell Brand was accused of rape and sexual assault by four different women, causing his agent to drop him and his concert tour to be cancelled. These accusations are all from over 10 years ago, and Brand absolutely denies and refutes the allegations. He has been very open and remorseful about his past life of promiscuity and has even written about that life in his autobiography, but he claims that every sexual encounter was completely consensual. But now, over a decade later, four women have come forward to accuse him of rape. It’s strange that all four women who didn’t say a word about being raped for more than a decade, suddenly decided to come forward at the same time, independent of each other.
I don’t know if any of these allegations against Russell Brand are true or not, and if they are true, he should be held to the full account of the law. What is odd is that these allegations are only coming out now in 2023 when the alleged assaults occurred between 2006 and 2013. Why did these women wait so long? The typical answer is that they were scared that Brand’s fame and star power would crush them, but then why didn’t they come forward during the #MeToo movement when many prominent people from Hollywood, Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose were taken down? Why didn’t they make these charges during that time when women who made allegations of sexual assault were not only immediately believed, but became heroes in the media?
