The Sun has launched a
scathing bizarre attack on Russell Brand claiming he is sprout-like and most people basically don't like him.

Only it would appear The Sun's assertion that 68% of people think Brand a 'hypocrite' is rather wide of the mark, if these Twitter users are any guide:
I like both Russell and the sprout!— Lukey Boy (@vivalukey) December 5, 2014
While we can neither confirm or deny a mysterious Christmas vegetable aroma around the man, we can confirm a huge majority of the internet appear to very much like the man.
@rustyrockets I like you Russell— Pilks (@benpilkslyons) December 5, 2014
And here's another.
Kwame, @rustyrockets it will be ok…. Just keep speaking with your heart!!— Ghana Kurasini (@Twi_teacher) December 5, 2014
Oh and there's loads more...
Need more people like @rustyrockets who use their position to make people aware of the lies and distractions being spread by the media.— Jack Lynch (@_jacklynch94) December 5, 2014
I 💜 @rustyrockets and what he's doing 👏👏👏— alanya schofield (@ally2_X) December 5, 2014
He's starting to win over the doubters.

Obviously coverage isn't unanimous and he does have a few he's failed to win over, such as this eloquent chap.
Hate Russell brand me— james whatmough (@jameswhatmough1) December 5, 2014
And this guy.
Top marks for succinctness.
Russell brand is a toss pot, plain and simple— Bradley Lawrence (@BradLawrence_) December 5, 2014
Where do 'genuine' revolutionaries shop?
Russell Brand is the guy you see shouting "Free Palestine" & "Boycott Zionist" with a can of cola & M&S shopping bag in his hands.— Alan Amin (@Alan93LFC) December 5, 2014
Only a bit though...
I find the Russell Brand and the whole politics thing a bit annoying— henry serlin (@SerlinHenry) December 5, 2014
The Sun's coverage hasn't exactly gone down too well either.
Don't understand what The Sun is trying to do. I make that 2 Russell Brand-targeting front pages in 3 days. Both laughable and forced.— Dave Lambert (@dave_lambert77) December 5, 2014
The poll has also come under a little bit of fire.
68% of The Sun readers have branded @rustyrockets a hypocrite. The Sun. Poll is therefore null and void.— Zaki Naser (@ZakiNaser95) December 5, 2014
@rustyrockets when was this national vote any way ?— stuart cooper (@StewieKent) December 5, 2014
To end, here's a final thought from Michael...
Russell Brand's a hypocrite
Rupert Murdoch's a hypocrite
Now can we please stop only talking about poverty when rich people do— Michael (@UniverseInABall) December 5, 2014
