Russell Brand: BBC and Channel 4 are looking into allegations

Between 2006 and 2013, the comedian and actor was accused of rape and sexual abuse, which he denies.

The charges were made public in a story by the Times, Sunday Times, and Channel 4’s Dispatches.

It also includes allegations about his behavior toward women and his job behavior over the same time period.

Between 2006 and 2008, Brand worked as a BBC radio broadcaster. According to the BBC, it is “urgently looking into the issues raised” by the allegations. An internal investigation has been launched by Channel 4, where Brand also served as a presenter.

Although the claimed assaults did not occur on BBC or Channel 4 property, the claims have generated concerns for the broadcasters and the larger industry.

According to the Times, a complaint was filed to BBC management about Brand’s “alarming display of aggression and disrespect” previously.

Brand spent two years as a presenter on 6 Music and Radio 2, presented Big Brother’s Big Mouth on Channel 4’s sister station E4, and launched his Hollywood film career at this time.

The New York Times published an account from the woman who accused Brand of rape in Los Angeles in 2012 on Sunday.
