Back in September 2022, he became emotional when asked whether he saw himself as a hero to the ‘incel’ community.
Peterson also spoke about Russell Brand during the interview on Tuesday (3 October). The comedian has been accused of rape, sexual assault, and abuse by four women.
Peterson said: “Russell’s sexual behaviour was exactly the kind of hedonistic nightmare that all the kind of radicals and progressives are rah, rah, rah-ing about non-stop except when it comes to visit them at home.
“He was celebrated for his womanising and he’s apologised for that and he stopped drinking and he stopped taking cocaine and usually people who engage in licentious and impulsive behaviour of the sort that’s liable to get you in trouble are extraordinary intoxicated by alcohol at the time of doing it.
“So the mere fact that he’s become sober in recent years and also attempted to atone for his sins is a real plus.”
