Russell Brand isn’t really someone to take things lying down. On the most recent episode of “The Trews,” the comedian decided to visit the Fox News headquarters in New York and film his critique of an Islamaphobic segment by Bill O’Reilly as he sat on the sidewalk outside the building. The decision to film there came to Brand after his appearance was canceled on “The Sean Hannity Show,” and well, let’s just say more than one security guard was less than pleased with the comedian’s choice of venue.

Brand’s “war” with Sean Hannity has been going on for a few months now, ever since the Fox News host decided to insult the comedian for some of his comments about Hannity’s statements. To catch up on the feud, click here and here. And to watch more of the “Trews'” Fox News takedown, watch this.
