Russell Brand 'thrown out of GQ after-party' for offensive Nazi jibes about event sponsors Hugo Boss

Comedian Russell Brand was allegedly ejected from the GQ Men Of The Year Awards after-show party after he made jibes onstage about the event's sponsors Hugo Boss - and its historical links to the Nazis. The comic, who picked up a gong at the GQ Men of the Year Awards, criticised the German fashion firm, who sponsored the show, for making uniforms for Hitler's regime. Brand took to the stage after Boris Johnson who received GQ magazine’s award for Politician of the Year at Tuesday night's event at the Royal Opera House in London. And after the mayor made jokes regarding the recent chemical attacks and subsequent deaths in Syria, Brand said: 'Glad to grace the stage where Boris Johnson has just made light of the use of chemical weapons in Syria,' during his acceptance speech for the Oracle award. 'I mention that only to make the next comment a bit lighter because if any of you know a little bit about history and fashion, you'll know Hugo Boss made the uniforms for the Nazis,' he added. 'But they did look f****** fantastic, lets face it, while they were killing people on the basis of their religion and sexuality." Brand, who ended his speech by telling Noel Gallagher, another of the winners on the night, "Good luck getting more offensive than that, son", was then according to The Sun kicked out of the aftershow party in central London. A spokesman for GQ declined to comment on the claims when contacted. Brand was seen chatting to Noel Gallagher and Rita Ora at the party, but he looked unnerved after taking a few photos with fans, and then made a swift exit accompanied by his security guard.
