Russell Brand took his web show on the road to Fox News headquarters, where he was very quickly kicked off the property. Brand says he was scheduled to confront Sean Hannity on his show this week, but his appearance was canceled at the last minute. Because of this, he decided to visit anyway.

“You can’t film here, this is private property,” a man told Brand. When Brand refused to leave, he asked, “You want to get arrested?”
“Whether the subject is Islamophobia or it’s just the freedom to be in a lobby, Fox is a difficult organization to work with,” Brand told viewers after he unsuccessfully tried to enter the building. “Whether it’s canceling booking for the Hannity show or kicking you out of their building, which they claim is owned by Beacon Management, it’s very difficult to have true freedom.”
On Twitter, Hannity lashed out at the actor:
Brand has not yet responded.
