His video came ahead of the release of the accusations published by The Sunday Times, Times and Channel 4 Dispatches.

Four women accused Brand of sexual assault over a seven-year period when Brand worked as a presenter for BBC Radio 2 and Channel 4 and also an actor in Hollywood films.

Tristan Tate took to social media to say he “did not believe one word of it [the allegations]”, joining other voices such as Elon Musk and Tucker Carlson.

His brother Andrew also shared his views on social media, but rather than writing new words, the influencer re-shared a post claiming Brand was getting the “Andrew Tate treatment”.

Andrew Tate is currently awaiting trial in Romania having been charged with human trafficking, rape and forming an organised crime group.

Andrew and Tristan were both indicted in June along with two Romanian female suspects.

In his denial video, Brand said: “Now, this isn't the usual type of video we make on this channel where we critique, attack and undermine the news in all its corruption because in this story, I am the news.

“I've received two extremely disturbing letters or a letter and an email.

“One from a mainstream media TV company, one from a newspaper listing a litany of extremely egregious and aggressive attacks, as well as some pretty stupid stuff like my community festival should be stopped, that I shouldn't be able to attack mainstream media narratives on this channel.

“But amidst this litany of astonishing rather baroque attacks, are some very serious allegations that I absolutely refute.

“These allegations pertain to the time when I was working in the mainstream, when I was in the newspapers all the time, when I was in the movies.

“And as I've written about extensively in my books, I was very, very promiscuous.”
