Russell Brand, Andrew Sachs, Celebrity Prank, Mean Voicemail Message, Manuel In Fawlty Towers

Was Russell Brand's Voicemail Funny or Hurtful?

Russell Brand does get himself into trouble. If you've listened to his radio show or podcast, you know it's a rambling, often rude, flowery and stuttering trip through Russell's life and experiences. Usually it's a lot of fun. But in the show broadcast on October 18 Russell phoned Andrew Sachs — the actor best known as Manuel in Fawlty Towers — four times with Jonathan Ross, leaving lewd messages about Sachs' granddaughter on his voicemail. Russell has overtly apologised, albeit undermining it slightly by making light of it with Simon Amstell (listen here) but what do you think? Was Russell out of line with this?
