Russell Brand pledges full transparency in internal review
Between 2006 and 2008, Brand hosted programmes on 6 Music and Radio 2.
Streaming services of the corporation have already removed some shows featuring the comedian and actor.
His arrest follows accusations of rape and sexual assault, which he denies.
He claims he is the victim of a “coordinated attack” and that his relationships were “always consensual”.
According to director general Tim Davie, the internal review will look into any complaints about Russell Brand’s behavior during his time, what was known at the time, and what was done.
In his words, “The objective is to be totally transparent – just share what we have and be supportive.”
According to him, he wanted the review to be completed in a few weeks, not months, and he wanted to get to the bottom of things. Dispatches, the Times, and the Sunday Times conducted a joint investigation at the weekend into the assault allegations.
A complaint was made to management about Brand’s “alarming display of aggression and disrespect” during his show, they reported.
