Two media giants in the U.S. are seemingly coming to the defense of British actor and media personality Russell Brand, who is now accused of rape, sexual assault and emotional abuse of numerous women over a seven-year period from 2006 to 2013 when his career was at its peak.

Published reports indicate one of the alleged victims of sexual assault was a 16-year-old schoolgirl, and Brand is staunchly denying all charges.

Now Tucker Carlson, the former top-rated anchor on the Fox News Channel who is now a media sensation on X, is sharing Brand’s personal defense, noting: “Criticize the drug companies, question the war in Ukraine, and you can be pretty sure this is going to happen.”

“Sure seems that way!” responded Elon Musk to Carlson’s remark.

Musk also responded directly to Brand’s video, agreeing with his comments about the media, saying: “Of course. They don’t like competition.”Brand says in his video defense: “I have received two extremely disturbing letters – or a letter and an email – one from a mainstream media TV company, one from a newspaper listing a litany of extremely egregious and aggressive attacks, as well as some pretty stupid stuff, like my community festival should be stopped and I shouldn’t be able to attack mainstream media narratives on this channel.
