Russell Brand Steals The Paparazzi's Phones Now Read More »

Seeing as he did it in front of 85 other cameras, Russell Brand isn’t even trying to pretend he didn’t steal a photographer’s phone and toss it through a window in New Orleans Monday night. He tweeted this just an hour ago because he’s so very cheeky, don’t you see?

Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iphone irreverently, what I did was a tribute to his memory.

In Russell Brand’s defense, it’s a very hard and difficult existence to have your picture taken for a few minutes by someone in a car several yards away as you walk into a luxury apartment to bang a beautiful woman (in a wheelchair) because there are millions of dollars in your bank account. That sounds like Satan’s first draft for Hell before he realized he went too far. “Whoa, wait, pictures? I really need to stop drinking.”

    Russell Brans is a comedian.
    I have to admit, I don’t find him particularly clever, witty of funny.
    Others do, which is great.
    However, when the big bucks start rolling in, and a smug sense of “entitlement” kick in, that’s when the c-listers show their true colors.
    Anyone a big fan of (or even remember) the ‘Arthur’ remake?
    This dude will be begging for attention in 5 years.

      If he did that to my phone he’d be picking asphalt out of his teeth!

      • Johnny P!

        Or would he be picking up his teeth with broken fingers off the asphalt?

      • El Jefe

        So what you are saying is that you are willing to go to Federal Prison for battery and also get sued into the Stone Age and lose all your money? Correct? Because that is what happens in the real world.

      Russell Brand is a celebrity let’s let him have super powers greater than everyone else. What about the old lady in the back ground of all those Russell Brand photos, does she have a right to rob and assault everyone too? This is America we all try to get along, it’s a promise we make to each other.

    Which unfunny dead comedian is Brand’s comment a tribute to?

  3. Can’t we just send this unfunny, dirty, jiffy-pop head back to England?

    what an ass

    No consumer level phone is good enough for Russell, he requires a phone with an industrial strength vibrate setting. Granted they’re not as sleek as other phones because they run off a truck battery but boy do they ever get the job done.

    And tomorrow he will destroy a fruit stand:
    “Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone eating an apple irreverently, what I did was a tribute to his memory.”

  7. Nice try, but I consider using the iPhone camera with its unique DouchebagID app to be a far better tribute to Steve Jobs. Total tosser.

  8. “Uh, yeah. Steve Jobs. Me too” said Chris Brown.

  9. Seamus O'Lentry

    It’s not right he disrespects Steve Jobs, the man isn’t alive to defend himself.

  10. Realistic Dude

    Being pissed on on camera for $88/hour doesn’t sound like a career.

  11. Johnny Law

    As a tribute to the Bill of Rights let’s arrest his ass and throw in him in jail.
    First Amendment Freedom of speech, of the press, and of assembly right to petition
    Fourth Amendment Protection from unreasonable search and seizure. The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures.
    Fifth Amendment due process, double jeopardy, self-incrimination, eminent domain. No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime
    Sixth Amendment Trial by jury and rights of the accused, speedy trial, public trial, right to counsel
    Seventh Amendment Civil trial by jury
    Eighth Amendment Prohibition of excessive bail and cruel and unusual punishment.
    Ninth Amendment – Protection of rights not specifically enumerated in the Constitution.

    Russell Brand stripped this man of seven rights as a free citizen in the United States by doing what he did. Perhaps it’s time the public be reminded the importance of these values we hold dear. Many men died insuring the Freedoms we have today.

    That’s pretty clever. iPhones are the bane of existence.

    “I love you Steve Jobs, I love you so much you’re my hero. Rest now Steve Jobs, take our love and dream forever in the shimmering heavens. You’ve given much and asked so little in return, I hurl this phone into that window in honor of your genius” “Also fuck off pap”

    I like this photo because it illustrates the immense stress built up from suppressing his sexual identity. The clasped hands and raised up shoulders express his inability to cope with his surroundings and his need to protect himself from harm. Fear is what dominates Russell Brand, fear seen here manifested in anger.

  15. The driver wouldn’t pay Russell for the unsolicited window wash he provided so this was Russell’s way of exacting revenge.

    Lindsay Lohan take notice, New Orleans is not prosecuting celebrities.

  19. Abdul the Cool

    I love this guy, first he does heroin then he bangs chicks that do heroin then he sells millions of books about him banging chicks and doing heroin then he rapes Katy Perry then does movies with P Diddy then he lands a gig for Fox then he beats up paps and now he’s fucking yoga instructors. Love this guy.

      This is a very cool event. I wonder what would it take to bring siialmr event down over here to Singapore, SouthEast Asia. Any learnings on the approach I could garner from this event which I could learn from?

    Its New Orleans…Murder Capital of the world….as a proud resident i would have loved to add death place of Russel Brand….Damn It.

  21. Cutey

    Okay you threw the phone to tribute Steve Jobs, now explain why you dress like Ghandi on acid.

  22. Cheeky Monkey

    The New York Times is reporting an arrest warrant has been issued for Russell Brand in New Orleans. Give yourself up Russell, no sense in making them chase you down. You did the crime now do your time.

  24. You're all diseased

    paparazzi are douchebags, and so are you if you support the entire gossip media machine, don’t you people have anything better to do than live vicariously through these celebs?

  25. Haggie

    Guilty of douchebaggery in the first degree!
