Russell Brand decided to go ahead and film an appearance at the Fox News building in New York City after Hannity's show cancelled his appearance tonight. Brand's video concerned how Bill O'Reilly makes us all more Islamophobic.

Raw Story:

After playing a clip in which O’Reilly claims that 35 countries are governed by Sharia Law, “which is controversial, to say the least,” Brand replies, “No, the least you could say, Bill, would be nothing at all — and the world would be a better place.”

Ouch. Went straight for the throat right out of the gate there, didn't you, Russell?

As he was criticizing O’Reilly, however, a security guard approached him. “Excuse me,” the guard says, “you can’t film here! This is private property!”

“Whose property is it?” Brand asks.

“The building’s.”

“Who does the building belong to?” Brand replies.

“It doesn’t matter,” the guard says.

“It does matter,” Brand answers. “I’ll just stay here then,” he says, returning to the front of the building.

“Do you wanna get arrested?” the guard asks, before escorting Brand to speak to another security guard.

Brand then repeats his question, “Who does this property belong to?” and is again told, “It belongs to the building.”

I guess the truth hurts just a little bit too much. Such thin-skinned weenies on Fox News, they can't even take a little bit of criticism.
