Russell Brand Threw A Paparazzo's iPhone And Put The Blame On Steve Jobs !

Russell Brand has an interesting (and funny excuse I might say!) defense for snatching a paparazzo photographer's phone and tossing it. The ex husband of Katy Perry states that he was simply paying a tribute to Steve Jobs!!!

TMZ reported that on Monday, Brand noticed photographer Timothy Jackson snapping photos of him with an iPhone out of a car window in New Orleans. Brand was caught on camera rushing toward the car, grabbing the photographer's phone, and throwing it with all his strength. The phone shattered a window of a nearby law office.(Ooops!)

Now Brand has taken to Twitter to defend himself for the show of rage.

"Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iphone irreverently," the comedian joked on the micro-blogging site. "What I did was a tribute to his memory."

According to TMZ, Jackson has filed charges for "criminal damages" against Brand. Meanwhile, Brand has reportedly offered to pay for fixing the window at the law office.

It has to be mentioned that Brand is currently spending time in New Orleans with reported new girlfriend Oriela Medellin. The two have been spotted taking strolls through the city, as well as kissing outside an ice cream shop. They also went on a bike ride together, something Brand used to do with Perry...

Well, Brand has a great sense of humor and he is very good at finding hilarious excuses! What I don't understand is: "Why celebrities always take on twitter to defend themselves?" Instead of making press conferences, they take on twitter! That shows me 2 things: 1. They desperately need their fans' support ( lack of confidence) and 2. Social media is far cheaper than using their reps, manager and agents to make a public appearance on tv! Plus is a way of  being trendy on this "Social Media Era"! 

What do you think?
