Los Angeles, May 25 (IANS) Actor-comedian Russell Brand has reportedly been attacked by fans of band One Direction for daring to call the band’s member Harry Styles a womaniser.
Brand reportedly called Styles as his “womanising apprentice” in an Âappeal for celebrities to sign his Âpetition to decriminalise drugs and treat addiction as a disease.
“My adored womanising apprentice @Harry_Styles please encourage your followers to sign this. One day you might need it,” Brand posted to Styles Twitter, reports dailystar.co.uk.
