Megyn Kelly: No One Should Rush to Defend Russell Brand

Comedian Russell Brand has been accused of rape and sexual assault by four women, and many conservative commentators have rushed to defend him. SiriusXM host Megyn Kelly says that’s a mistake.

During The Megyn Kelly Show Monday, the former cable news host shared her opinion that the allegations appear credible and anyone saying otherwise is ignorant.

“I realize that the kneejerk instinct now by so many is, ‘Russell Brand is wrongly accused. These women are all liars’. I’m sorry this is extremely detailed. And then in the case of the other woman, there’s an actual set of medical records after she went to a rape crisis center, the day of the alleged encounter plus apologetic, begging for forgiveness texts from Russell Brand,” Kelly said. “Could you please, for one second, stay open-minded to the possibility that the women are telling the truth?! We don’t need to so overcorrect from the ‘Me Too’ movement that every woman gets completely disregarded and called a liar when she finds the guts to come forward and make an allegation.

“They may be telling the truth! It’s worth investigating! We don’t need to knee-jerk condemn him, and we don’t need to knee-jerk condemn them. I’m just pissed!” Kelly shouted. “Because what I’ve seen is like a rash of guys coming out to be like ‘It’s bullshit’. You don’t know whether it’s bullshit or not. Did you read the report of this woman? Did you read the alleged rape details? Or did you read the text message that she has from Russell Brand begging for forgiveness?”

Brand’s YouTube channel was demonetized, with several prominent conservative media figures, including Matt Walsh, Ben Shapiro, and Erick Erickson calling the move a bad precedent due to Brand not being charged with any crimes.
