Now the British comedian appears to be upset that the video has been taken down, despite agreeing it featured incorrect facts about the coronavirus pandemic.

Specifically, Brand says the deleted video “cited information on official government websites, which we misinterpreted.”

“We made an error, in my opinion, a relatively small error, and we are being penalised, and for me that looks like censorship,” he said.

He then revealed that he and his team would instead be moving to the online video platform Rumble.

“If you’re gonna be serious about making change, you’re gonna have to make it with us over on Rumble, where these videos are released first,” he said.

He also acknowledged the “reputation” Rumble has for pushing “particular biases”.

“[They’re] biases that we are beyond,” Brand said. “I’m interested in total transparent communication, empowerment of the audience, symbiotic two-way communication and attacking elite establishments whether it’s corporate or state.”
