Russell Brand Offends Students with Gay Slur at Cambridge University Talk
Russell Brand offended some students during a recent talk he gave at Cambridge University, after using a gay slur to quiet the audience, the Varsity reports:
"At one point he jokingly reprimanded the audience, exclaiming, 'Shut up you Harry Potter poofs!' While most in attendance seem to have found this funny, some have spoken out against the use of the term. The CUSU LGBT representative Charlie Bell said, 'It was a bit of a shock to hear that the word poof is considered an appropriate term to level as an insult, especially by someone like Brand, who models himself as the very model of a modern liberal... he should apologise unreservedly and immediately.'"
