What did Daniel Sloss say about Russell Brand?

Channel 4’s Dispatches, Sloss claimed that female comedians had a WhatsApp ground warning each other of people they had uncomfortable experiences with.

Discussing the WhatsApp group, Sloss said: “I know for many many years women have been warning each other about Russell” adding there were “many stories with varying degrees of severity.”

Sloss said: “He was a big name, big big household name. If you were a comedian and got to gig with him you'd be gigging with a celebrity.

“I'm stood in bars with agents, promoters, channel commissioners and I'm hearing these allegations and rumours with Russell in the same room, and later on he would be on a movie, on a television show, he would be hosting something. He was still being employed.”
