It looks like Russell Brand is under some hot fire again!
Last night, the Get Him To The Greek actor hosted the GQ Men Of The Year Awards last night, and he made some jokes about Hugo Boss that got him kicked out.
According to The Sun, Russell mentioned to the audience that Hugo Boss used to create uniform designs for Nazi’s back in the day.
He said at the awards:
‘If anyone knows a bit about history and fashion, you know it was Hugo Boss who made uniforms for the Nazis.’
It turns out that Russell has worn some gear from the top style maker himself before, which is why his statements are so controversial.
He apparently wore a Hugo Boss jacket to an Oscar party six months ago, so his statements come as a shock to fans.
It looks like Kenneth Cole is also coming under fire as a designer, being that his Twitter account tweeted out a pretty offensive message:
“Boots on the ground” or not, let’s not forget about sandals, pumps and loafers. #Footwear

The metaphor “boots on the ground” that is used bandied about hither and yon during the ongoing debate in Congress on whether to authorize the use of force against the Assad regime in response to a chemical weapons attack.
Yikes! These designers need to keep it all about the fashion and stay away from the jokes!
