Rumble rejects MPs’ demand to cave into Russell Brand ‘cancel culture mob’
Video platform denounces ‘deeply inappropriate and dangerous’ letter asking it to demonetise comedian's channel
But the move has backfired, as Rumble has issued a stinging public rebuke in response, insisting that it stands for “an internet where no one arbitrarily dictates which ideas can or cannot be heard”.
Rumble wrote in a public statement: “We regard it as deeply inappropriate and dangerous that the UK Parliament would attempt to control who is allowed to speak on our platform or to earn a living from doing so.
“Singling out an individual and demanding his ban is even more disturbing given the absence of any connection between the allegations and his content on Rumble.”
The company added pointedly: “Although it may be politically and socially easier for Rumble to join a cancel culture mob, doing so would be a violation of our company’s values and mission. We emphatically reject the UK Parliament’s demands.”
