Russell Brand

Canada Won't Let Me In!

10/1/2011 3:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1001_russel_tweet_bn
Russell Brand has managed to find another country that doesn't want him -- he's been denied entry to Canada.

Brand first tweeted, possibly while still flying, "HELP! I'm gonna be late for Casino Rama show unless someone can force Canadian customs officials to let us land in Orillia!"

He then tweeted a few hours later that his concert tonight was cancelled because he couldn't get in the country (see above).

Brand was deported from Japan back in May while trying to visit with his wife, Katy Perry.

The media in Canada paints a different story -- saying Russell was not turned away by customs, but rather his plane was having issues.

Seriously!?! Russell these are YOUR problems, not Canada or anyone elses problem. You caused countries not to allow you to enter because of YOUR behavior. You are paying the price for your poor decisions and actions in life. I'm glad to see just because you are a "celebrity" that these countries aren't abandoning their laws just to appease your entitled butt. :-)

This happened once to someone I very much loved (who, for the record, had no record). And as a result I've never been able to see this person again. Say what you will about Russell, but he's right about the border thing. Canadian border patrol changed my life (for the worse).

No Russell, you have it wrong. Bad behavior has consequences. It's not okay to do whatever the he** you want and then expect everyone else to be okay with it.

Appears to be poor management. Thought you might address something like this before you are mid-flight.

Russell did it all wrong. Apparently we only let people enter our country illegally nowadays.

Looks like lack of planning and following the rules and prepare like the rest of us. Time to grow up.

He could very well be the most annoying idiot on the planet. Go back to the U.K where they MAY find you amusing. Moron! Oh and please take your annoying wife with you.
