Russell Brand, an actor and comedian, has now reportedly been barred from making money on YouTube on Tuesday, just days after multiple women accused him of sexual assault over a decade ago in what Brand called a “coordinated attack.”
The monetization of Brand’s 6.6 million subscriber channel has been suspended following serious allegations against the creator, according to YouTube.
Because to Google’s decision, Brand will no longer be able to profit from YouTube adverts on his videos.
Brand’s other lesser channels, which have several hundred thousand subscribers, have also been demonetized. It is unclear how long the suspensions will be in effect.
Brand was suspended by YouTube for breaking the site’s creator responsibility policy.
Brand, 48, denies four anonymous women’s allegations of sexual assault, which were revealed on Saturday in a joint investigation by the British newspapers The Times, Sunday Times, and Channel 4 television.
The women made their claims when media outlets contacted them.
The alleged assaults occurred between 2006 and 2013.
One of the accusers claims Brand sexually attacked her when she was 16, the legal consent age in the United Kingdom, during a relationship with him.
Another woman claims Brand raped her in 2012 in Los Angeles.
In the early 2000s, Brand was a major television and radio celebrity in the United Kingdom.
He has authored memoirs about his drug and alcohol problems, and he has starred in several Hollywood films, including “Forgetting Sarah Marshall.”
Between 2010 and 2012, Brand was married to music sensation Katy Perry.
