In Brand’s most recent YouTube video, he recounted how a video posted earlier in the month regarding changing narratives surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic and treatments.
"Earlier this month we did a video about the changing narratives around Covid, the pandemic, and Covid treatments in which we cited information on official government websites, which we misinterpreted," said Brand, noting that "I’ll have to be careful talking about it now, I don’t want to make the same mistake that’s had one of your videos pulled down and an official warning issued."
While discussing the strike from Youtube, Brand noted that his channel is moving over to Rumble, where videos stream days earlier than on YouTube, and where, starting on September 28, his new show "Stay Free with Russell Brand" will be airing exclusively.
"We have been persecuted for misinformation, and it's right we have a responsibility to make sure that the information we convey is absolutely 100 percent as accurate as it possibly could be. We made a mistake in saying [censored] was now recommended by the NIH. What we should have said is their trialing [censored]. That's what we should have said," said Brand.
Brand noted that he has taken down both the original video as well as the apology video from YouTube.
"So both of those videos, you can watch right now on Rumble. They still live on Rumble. That's the reason we're joining them because they're not going to censor our content," said Brand.
"I believe we're at a point of crisis and things need to radically change fast, and I believe we'll be able to communicate our message more freely on Rumble. And this misinformation strike and take down demonstrates exactly what it is we're talking about. We made an error, in my opinion, a relatively small error, and we're being penalized for it. That looks like censorship."
