 i seem to remember a time when the empire bragged about their equality before the impartial law in which you couldn't be given penalties without going thru the justice system. these days accusations are verdicts in the mind of the herd of sheep ;

 Major brands have pulled ads from Rumble, following the video platform’s refusal to censor or demonetize actor and podcast host Russell Brand over decade-old sexual assault allegations published this month in the U.K. media.

Notably, YouTube, to much criticism, has banned Brand from monetization on all of his accounts over the allegations, though Brand has no charges against him and has strongly denied ever engaging in nonconsensual sex. Rumble refused to follow suit.

According to News Movement, Burger King is one of the brands that has paused advertisements on Brand’s Rumble channel. “Burger King has paused all advertising on the channel while investigations into the allegations are ongoing,” the company said.

Meal-kit company HelloFresh has pulled ads from all of Rumble, it seems, telling News Movement when it reached out about the allegations, “Thanks for pointing this out to us. We have manually removed our ads from Rumble.”

And Fashion company ASOS pulled ads this week, the report noted.

The allegations against Brand surfaced from a joint investigation by The Sunday Times, The Times, and Channel 4 Dispatches. The alleged victims were reached out to by the media before detailing their accusations. So far, no charges have been filed against Brand, though London police have opened an investigation into a newly reported allegation from 20 years ago...........more.......
