Russell Brand Reams Out Morning Joe Hosts: ‘What’s Wrong With Your Manners?’


By Michael Lewittes



Russell Brand reamed out the hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” for displaying bad manners and displaying extremely poor interviewing skills during Monday’s sit-down with the comedian.


After the show’s co-host Mika Brzezinski and panelists Katty Kay and Brian Shactman continued to talk about Brand as if he weren’t there, Brand had finally had enough.

The “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” star chided the anchors, “You shouldn’t say ‘he’ when a person is present — you should refer to the person by their name. That’s basic good manners.”

During one of the trio of host’s many side conversations, Brand interrupted: “This is what you all do for a living?!”

“You’re conveying news to the people of America?” he asked awestruck.

Brand then completely took over the segment and started promoting his comedy tour “Messiah Complex” himself.

He concluded by calling Brzezinski a “shaft grasper.”
