    Russell "stupid" Brand has just resigned after the "phonegate" saga.

    What's the chances of Woss following suit?

    Hopefully he does.

    LOL... Yeh I know! Nice to see him so humble!

    Whilst some may think its out of proportion, it makes it even funnier to see that old cliche "he who laughs last.........."

    dont


























    care


















    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think they should quit/be sacked. Why should they get paid so much money (especially Ross) to insult people. They think that they are above everyone and everything and if this had happened in a normal workplace ie, if they weren't so famous, then they would most probably have been sacked by now or at least something would've happened as it was out of order.

    Perhaps it has been blown a bit out of proportion but on the money these 2 are, they should know by now what is, and isn't, allowed and acceptable and should pay the price if they abuse it.

    I have to agree. These two are like marmite, you either love them or you hate them. Unfortunately it seems like the haters are being listened to a lot more than the people who love them.

    People complain about this country being too politically correct, and the same people jump on the bandwagon in situations like this. Seems pretty pathetic to me.

    Not sure of all the exact details but did i hear the interview was planned and he didn't pick up? If so then surely he would of known what they are like or why agree to the interview in the 1st place.

    STUPID PEOPLE WITH NO SENSE OF HUMOR

    He should have left andrew sachs a messages with his formal apology on.

    He has apologised and I believe Andrew accepted his apology. He did it after he resigned though so people cannot say "he only did it to keep his job" etc lol.

    what a load of tosh, I'd bet it's all a PR stunt anyway.

    it worked afterall, everyones a winner baby :thumbsup:

    It wasn't planned, Andrew Sachs couldn't get in for his interview so he left them his phone number in case they needed to contact him about it, not on air insulting his grandaughter saying that Russell Brand had sh***ed her. The big fuss is that if a wind-up phone call is made then they should get the permission of the recipient first and they didn't, to make things worse it was apparently pre-recorded so someone else, who should also be in the firing line, made the decision that it was OK to broadcast it on the radio.

    I don't usually jump on the bandwagon like this and am usually quite laid back but I just feel that these two people in particular just seem to think that they can get away with saying whatever they want, no matter how insulting it may be, and it's about time someone told them that it's not acceptable.

    That said, I also think that producers/directors of the radio show should also be in line for the sack if Brand & Ross are as they were just as much to blame by letting it be aired.

    There - rant over!!!

    so he did agree to an interview with them surely he did some research as to what he was letting himself in for its all a bit OTT imo

    :thumbsup:


    I dong get what all the fuss is about he did sleep with the girl he made light of it she must have known what he was like

    and the worst bit is A)the broadcast is nearly 2 weeks old (pepole jumping on the band wagon) and B) it was a pre-record and approved by the Beeb before broadcast :o:?

    Totally blown out of proportion made 100 times worse by the papers running the story.
    She isn't exactly the girl next door is she!! I mean Andrew Sachs was fully aware his grand daughter was in a dance troupe called the satanic sluts!!

    No he agreed to TWO interviews as he said he would do it again after the first broadcast!!:x

    This country has gone fecking mad, two really funny and well liked presenters treated like the scum of the earth because they made a dumb and inappropriate joke!

    Why stop at sacking them, lets hang the *******s also...and everyone else who's ever made stupid jokes.

    ridiculous!!

    The BBC should do everything they can to refuse his resignation. I never listen to BBC radio 2, but I might just start now!!

    People need a reality check, I'm not saying what they did was 'nice' or anything.

    Will soon be forgotten - just like Russell Brand :thumbsup:

    you should have! his postcast was the best thing on it!!

    its lame. ok so they went a bit far but its not that bad. even andrew sach isnt making a big deal out of it. his stoopid grandaughter slept with russel brand, what did she expect, we've all witnessed his strange sense of humour. she's just being a pathetic child about it. IMO

    It was the follow up "apology" that did the damage. They did wrong and continued to take the p*ss. If they apologised properly, this would all have blown over very quickly. Instead they decided to bang the nails into their own coffins.

    Woss can be funny, but the only thing about Brand that makes me laugh is what he looks like!

    Supermod

    It is pathetic. 18,000 people apparently complained? Why not do something constructive, not destructive.
    What do they expect from a Russell Brand show...? He is known for his madness, intelligence and wit. Yes, this wasnt intelligent (not witty!!) but he is very spontaneous.

    ^ Comedy is subjective, I don't find Jackass style humour amusing but that doesn't mean it's not popular.

    It's just complete nonsense, Russell Brand a) always calls people who agree to go on the show but then don't, it's part of the show and b) talks about the women he's slept with -- people who listen to his show don't mind/find it amusing, otherwise they wouldn't be listeners to his show.

    Apparently TWO of his actual listeners complained, the rest of them have come from people who have never listened to his show in their lives.
