Viewers on Rumble were left shocked on Monday night (September 18), as comedian Russell Brand failed to show for his 5pm slot on the website. This comes after Brand was accused of some heinous crimes in the days prior.

Every weekday at 5pm, Brand shows up on Rumble to talk about a number of topics ranging from the JFK assassination to health and fitness. His last upload on the site was four days ago, meaning he also didn’t show up for his Tuesday slot either.

Brand has accumulated just over 1.4m followers on Rumble, making him the fifth most followed person on the site, behind Andrew Tate, Dinesh D’Souza, Donald Trump and Dan Bongino, who is the most followed with 2.8m. The site in total has 238m subscribers, attracting those on the alt-right and those who see themselves outside the mainstream.

On Tuesday (September 19), it was announced that YouTube had suspended Russell Brand from advert income. This could hurt Brand financially, who has over 6.6 million subscribers on the site.  On Rumble, his most popular videos have a potential of earning up to £80,000 each over the course of its lifetime, it is understood.

What is Rumble?

Compared to similar sites, Rumble is still quite small and not long out of its infancy as it was created nine years ago in 2013. Rumble is an online video platform, web hosting and cloud services business.

On the site, you can watch a number of different live categories including, gaming, news, music, podcasts and much more. Rumble prides itself on being ‘immune to cancel culture’, featuring many controversial people.

According to the terms and conditions, Rumble forbids pornography, harassment, racism, antisemitism, and copyright infringement. Since November 2022, it has been banned in France after they refused to give in to the country’s demand for the site to remove Russian state media accounts.
