• Russell Brand vs. Sean Hannity! Fox News Host Attacks Comedian On Twitter After ‘Trews’ Video Slam Over Middle East Conflict

    It appears Sean Hannity’s feud with Russell Brand will not end anytime soon. The Fox News host went on a Twitter rampage, slamming his critics, including the outspoken comedian.

    This latest chapter in the Sean Hannity/Russell Brand feud began when the below photo of the host whispering into Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s ear went viral.

    Naturally, many Twitter users had some amusing captions for this photo. But Hannity fired back at those trollers in brutal fashion.

    Sean Hannity later admitted that he tweeted at critics of the Nethanyahu photo because he was bored.

    But while this latest drama proves the Fox News host has too much time on his hands, it also reveals he still has issues with Russell Brand.  While Sean Hannity was lashing out at his Twitter haters, he also tweeted the below message to the comedian. Hannity specifically referenced Brand’s infamous decision to dress like Osama Bin Laden the day after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, a stunt that got him fired from MTV UK.

    This tweet was actually similar to statements Sean Hannity made last month about Russell Brand. The host called out the comedian’s  lack of knowledge on the Israel/Gaza conflict and called Brand a “D-list actor better known for his failed marriage to Katy Perry.”

    “Russell, if you’re watching, and I’m sure you will, take a close look at your TV because I need to educate you because you’re kind of dumb and ignorant,” Sean Hannity said in this Fox News rant.

    What led the Fox News host to publicly destroy Russell Brand? Sean Hannity was upset at the latest episode of the comedian’s YouTube show, “The Trews.” Brand mocked Hannity’s now-viral interview of Palestinian-American Yousef Munayyer. Instead of letting the Jerusalem Fund Executive Director give his views on the Middle East conflict, Hannity spent much of the segment just talking over and yelling at his guest.

    “One of the definitions of ‘terrorist’ is using intimidation to reach your goals,” Russell Brand concluded. “Who in that situation was behaving like a terrorist, using intimidation, bullying, and being unreasonable? Sean Hannity, that’s where the terrorism is coming from.”

    Watch the Russell Brand video that started this Sean Hannity feud below.

    And after Sean Hannity called Brand out on Fox News, the comedian responded with a second  “Trews” video urging him to “Come back to humanity.” So it’s likely only a matter of time before Brand responds to Hannity’s Twitter salvo.
