>Fast Response

>I sent an e-mail to ITV to complain about a remark Russell Brand made while presenting the Brits. I can just about cope with him going on interminably about his private parts, however unfunny I might find it, but referring to breastfeeding babies as “little perverts” to an audience comprised of a significant number of young people was pretty irresponsible. Yes, I’m a Liberal, and he can say what he likes, and I would never stop him – but I reserve the right to argue with him.

I always believe that if you feel strongly enough about something you should do something about it so I fired off an e-mail to ITV, feeling fairly confident I’d never hear anything again but at least I’d said my piece.

Within 10 minutes I had an obviously standard response, so they’d had a few complaints, but I was impressed that they’d bothered to respond.

    >It’s just part of his particular style of humour. I think it’s patronising of you to think that anybody, however young, would actually take that comment seriously. Come on.I personally don’t find him that funny and it’s even more odd to have blow-dried hair, a Tango coloured fake tan and Hollywood white teeth on an otherwise essentially gothic man.My bigger complaint would be that he is a former heroin addict and that’s not good for kids to see set up as an example. I feel the same way about Kate Moss having her party antics glamorised while advertising Rimmel make-up to teenage girls.
