Russell Brand

I Didn't Commit a Crime,

I Honored Steve Jobs

Russell Brand just kinda, sorta 'fessed up to the whole iPhone snatch and toss in New Orleans ... hilariously blaming Steve Jobs for the whole thing.

Brand just tweeted, "Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iphone irreverently, what I did was a tribute to his memory."

TMZ broke the story ... Brand was accused of ripping an iPhone out of the hands of a paparazzo in New Orleans Monday night ... and then firing the phone at an office building ... shattering a window.

Cops said they were investigating the incident. Brand has since offered to pay for the window he broke.

I like it. Looks better on him than some empty, lawyer/publicist driven wimpy BS, PC apology like so many other celebs give.

Oh, ha - ha.

He should be charged with theft, vandalism and made to do community service. Which in his case would be never to open his mouth and expose his gigantic gums.

RB thinks he's funny? His attempt at a comical response to his committing a crime is not funny and his stealing someone else's property is not funny; prosecute his a$$. Let him take that isht to HIS country.
