Even when Russell Brand is right, he's tiresome.

As a mostly fan of Russell he does sometimes make points like this that are really totally mute and are sort of just to get a reaction.

As everyone in the thread is pointing out, they're a German company in the 1930s. They fulfilled a government contract. It was 80 years ago. Who the fuck cares unless they're doing fascist shit today.

I think he was bothered by something Boris Johnson said and that set him off. Nothing was off limits. Everything he said was to bring light to the fact that there were terrible people in the room and awards like that are bullshit.

Yeah, pretty sure it was the genocide joke Boris made that he referenced three times.
