Russell Brand was performing a show at the Borgata Casino in Atlantic City this weekend when his set was continually interrupted by a member of the audience who kept shouting out “Katy Perry“, and Brand decided to turn the tables on the heckler by turning the spotlight on the male and hurling a number of disparaging remarks at him.
Halting his show, Russell Brand said, “I wanna see what this person looks like. Turn the lights on for me because I want to achieve some sort of confirmation. Who’s the person who keeps shouting that? Come here, let’s see ya.”
As other members of the audience pointed the suspect out, Russell Brand continued, “Let’s see how your mental illness looks in the daylight. It’s you, is it? Oh dear. I was hoping that your personality was as a result of physical beauty, then I saw you. I thought this guy’s confident probably because he’s incredibly pretty, but look at you. You look like someone that’s fallen off the outside of a church! And what is it that you have rattling inside of your mind? Some bizarre combination of alcohol and idiocy… and yet the confidence to continue shouting!”
Russell Brand continued to reprimand the rude fan and an eyewitness tells Life & Style magazine, “He went on to attack everything from how good he thought the guy would be in bed to accusing him of being impotent. It must have been humiliating for the guy; it seemed to go on forever. Eventually he pulled it together and got back on the stage, and being Russell, he told the guy he’d just torn apart that he loved him.”
Ouch, I would not want to be the subject of Russell Brand‘s ire. The asshole had it coming.
