Russell Brand Makes Nazi Joke, Gets Boot from GQ Awards Party

by at . Comments

Leave it to Russell Brand to first be honored at an event… and then given the boot from an after-party in celebration of that same event.

Last Tuesday, the comedian was presented with the Oracle Award at the British GQ Men of the Year event, only to receive some flak after joking that Hugo Boss "made uniforms for the Nazis."

“The Nazis did have flaws," he joked. "But, you know, they did look f-cking fantastic, let’s face it, while they were killing people on the basis of their religion and sexuality."

To some, this was a more inappropriate comment that Brand's previously stated desire to have a KKK threesome.

According to Brand's Twitter recounting of the fallout from this quip, the magazine's editor asked him to leave a post-awards party, as the comedian wrote:

“GQ editor: ‘What you did was very offensive to Hugo Boss.’ Me: ‘What Hugo Boss did was very offensive to the Jews.’ #GQAwards #nazitailor.”

Somewhere, Jesse James totally didn't understand why this joke was considered offensive.
