RUSSELL Brand was asked to leave the event of a star-studded party for making Nazi cracks.
“If anyone knows a bit about history and fashion, you know it was Hugo Boss who made uniforms for the Nazis,” British newspaper The Sun claims he said. “But they looked f**king amazing.”
After reportedly resting a finger under his nose to resemble the notorious German political leader’s facial hair and using a comic march, he exited.
“Russell himself appeared to be more than happy to leave. He was standing up for what he believes in and was never going to back down,” a guest shared.
“He found being asked to leave hilarious and even barked, ‘Nazi sympathisers’ as he was kicked out.
“But it was hugely awkward for other guests at the party who didn’t know where to look.”
Russell continued to draw attention to his antics after the bash and engaged in conversation via Twitter with the media boss, writing: “GQ editor: ‘What you did was very offensive to Hugo Boss’. Me: ‘What Hugo Boss did was very offensive to the Jews’.”
He met singer Katy Perry in 2009 and they got engaged that same year, however he filed for divorce just 14 months after they wed in October 2010.
