Russell Brand Resigns From BBC Show

October 29th, 2008 // 3 Comments

BBC presenters Russell Brand and Jonathan Ross got themselves into some hot water when they called Fawlty Towers actor Andrew Sachs on the telephone and left obscene messages. One of which had Brand telling the machine, “I f—– your daughter.”

Thousands of complaints were launched to the BBC after the episode was broadcast on the BBC Radio 2 talk show. In response, Brand issued an apology, but amidst all the protests from offended viewers, the comedian has decided to resign from the BBC altogether.

I guess there’s a bright side for Russell here somewhere. At least no one is threatening his life. Right?

    Actually, it was Jonathon Ross who said on the msg that Brand f*cked the granddaughter. And, it is Ross who gets paid £16,000 per DAY by the BBC and who delights in vulgar displays of his wealth such as press releases about his £20,000 custom made gold sh*tter. Reports are he is scared, really scared and he should be. Perhaps he can sit there on his gold throne and think about his antics when they sack his arrogant self.
