Russell Brand: Sarah Palin Is Popular Because 'People Want to F--k Her'

British actor Russell Brand made a disgustingly sexist and misogynistic comment about former Alaska governor Sarah Palin Saturday.

The Wrap reported moments ago that during a question and answer session at the Television Critics Association, Brand said of Palin's popularity, "People want to f--k her."

According to Entertainment weekly, Brand elaborated:

That’s why they tolerate the other stuff….OK, that is a mad thing to say about seeing Russia out your window — but the d--k don’t lie.

This is not the first time Brand went after Palin.

As NewsBusters reported, he made crude remarks about the former governor and her family while hosting the MTV Video Music Awards in September 2008. NB also reported censors required him to delete some jokes he was going to make about the Palins at that event.

He sure is a classy guy, isn't he?
