Elon Musk Andrew Tate, Tucker Carlson support Russell Brand after sex assault claims
Elon Musk, Andrew Tate and Tucker Carlson led the charge in supporting Russell Brand in the wake of a bombshell exposé alleging he raped and abused four women over the course of seven years.
"Of course. They don't like competition," Musk wrote in response to Brand's video suggesting he is being targeted as part of a "coordinated media attack" for his right-wing criticism of the media, which he details on his podcast "Stay Free."
Social media influencer Tate — who is awaiting trial in Romania for rape and human trafficking charges — also threw support behind Brand on the platform.
"Welcome to the club," Tate said to Brand, along with an image of a cartoon knight with the caption: "On my way to fight the crazy b—h allegations."
Political commenter Carlson piled on, writing: “Criticize the drug companies, question the war in Ukraine, and you can be pretty sure this is going to happen.”
All three men backed Brand in response to Saturday’s explosive Times of London and Channel 4 Dispatches joint investigation into claims the 48-year-old British comedian sexually assaulted and raped women at the height of his fame.
Brand released a video the night before trying to get ahead of the report by refuting the “astonishing” and “egregious” claims he sexually abused the women over a seven-year span — including a 16-year-old girl he referred to as “the child.”
