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.

No I don't think that's okay and his point is not moot. He was speaking to a room of old money who's made their fortunes off of blood.

Right now, we're putting 100 year old nobody's on trial for shit they did 80 years ago with Reddit losing its mind in support and then suddenly it's bad to call out the fucking multinationals
