Russell Brand lost his cool in a televised interview with a reporter, made another video about losing his cool, and tweeted that he plans to sue The Sun for calling him a hypocrite, Jason Deans reported Wednesday for The Guardian.

The comedian pays rent for his London home to a firm registered in the British Virgin Islands, often referred to as a tax haven, according to Wednesday’s Sun.

Brand, who has previously called for a revolution and has appeared at anti-capitalist demonstrations, responded to allegations in a story on the front page of the paper by saying on Twitter that he intended to sue.

Here's the earlier TV interview with Brand's own take on it mixed in, from Brand's YouTube show, "Trews" (or true news.)
