Russel Brand Gets Backlashed After 9/11 Conspiracy Theories

 According to the DailymailUK Today, Russell Brand caused outrage today after he admitted being 'open-minded' about whether the United States was behind the 9/11 attacks and asked: 'Do you trust the American government?'
The comedian, 39, told BBC's Newsnight he believes there is an 'interesting' relationship between the families of former US president George Bush and Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. 
He was pressed by presenter Evan Davis on comments in his new book, Revolution, because in it he describes the 9/11 attacks on the Twin Towers in New York as 'controlled'.
Brand's decision to give credence to a 9/11 conspiracy led to fury online, with the multi-millionaire, who was married to Katy Perry, branded a 'ranting idiot' who should 'stick to comedy'.
                                       

When asked about a 9/11 conspiracy Brand said: 'We have to remain open-minded to any kind of possibility.
'Do you trust the American government? Do you trust the British government? What I do think is very interesting is the relationship that the Bush family have had for a long time with the bin Laden family.
'What I do think is very interesting is the way that even the BBC report the events in Ottawa to subtly build an anti-Islamic narrative. I think that's very interesting.'
He then appeared abruptly to change tack, saying that he did not want to discuss 'daft' conspiracy theories. 
Brand has courted controversy over 9/11 in the past and was sacked by MTV after turning up for work dressed as Osama bin Laden on the day after the attack that killed 3,000 people.
