Same-Sex Smoochers Have Something to Prove

By: Brandon Voss

Because some folks still doubt that his weekly FX show Brand X is actually filmed live, Russell Brand often kicks off an episode by trying to prove it. 

This past week he live-tweeted a photo of two audience members kissing, and those audience members happened to be men. Some people online have complained that the little stunt objectified homosexuality, but those same people would probably complain if Russell — who smooched Alec Baldwin in Rock of Ages — ignored his gay fans and only put straight couples on the spot.

Hey, if audience members are going to be harassed or humiliated, we sure as hell want to be a part of it! What do you think of the Brand X stunt?
