Russell Brand's 12 arrests ranging from battery to drugs had him deported from Japan earlier this year and now Canada wants no part of him. At least that is what he said originally. Scheduled to perform on Saturday night, the comedian Tweeted that he was not going to be allowed in the country while flying to the show. He was scheduled to perform in front of 5,000 people in Orillia, but the show had to be postponed. You know, you would think someone would check on all of this prior to selling tickets and actually getting on the plane to come to Canada.

Russell Brand blamed it all on Canada, but now, a spokesperson for the casino where Brand was scheduled to perform says it was a mechanical issue on the airplane and had nothing to do with customs. No word has been heard from Russell about it all, just the casino. Immigration or plane issue? It seems like an odd prank.
