Comedian Russell Brand was booted from a GQ Awards afterparty Tuesday after making Nazi jokes, according to MSN.com.
Apparently sponsors don't like it when someone says they had ties to Nazi Germany.
Brand was receiving the Oracle of the Year award at the annual ceremony in London when he told the crowd that the evening's sponsors, German fashion company Hugo Boss, had produced uniforms worn by Nazi troops during World War II.
"If any of you know a little bit about history and fashion, you'll know it was Hugo Boss (who) made the uniforms for the Nazis," Brand said. "The Nazis did have flaws, but they did look (expletive) fantastic, let's face it, while they were killing people on the basis of their religion and sexuality."
Brand later impersonated Hitler by putting a finger under his nose. "I'm a comedian, and it's my job to make jokes about things. Hugo Boss, it's fair enough, he might not have known! 'We're selling a lot of these (expletive) (uniforms), they're flying off the shelves!' Don't take life too seriously, soon we'll all be in the grave. Oh (expletive)!"
Organizers supposedly had Brand ejected from the afterparty. Brand defended himself later on Twitter, writing about the conversation he had with GQ magazine's editor Dylan Jones. "GQ editor: 'What you did was very offensive to Hugo Boss.' Me: 'What Hugo Boss did was very offensive to the Jews.' GQ Awards nazitailor."
