LEAKED VIDEO: Russell Brand booted from GQ Awards for saying Hugo Boss made Nazi uniforms

Footage has leaked from this Tuesday’s GQ Awards showing comedian Russell Brand slamming the event’s sponsor, Hugo Boss, for having a history as a tailor for the Nazis.

“Any of you who know a little bit of history and fashion will know that Hugo Boss made the uniforms for the Nazis,” Brand told a shocked audience at London’s Royal Opera House. “The Nazis did have flaws, but you know, they did look f*cking fantastic — let’s face it, while they were killing people on the basis of their religion and sexuality.”

According to reports, and to the comedian himself, Brand was booted from the after-party as a result of his rant.

Brand later posted a tweet summarizing a conversation he had with a GQ editor in the wake of the incident:
