MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski says that the response to the show’s interview with comedian Russell Brand earlier this week was one of the most intense she’s ever seen.
“I didn’t know Russell, and I don’t think Russell liked that,” Brzezinski said this morning. “I have never gotten more vitriol and anger and hatred than I have over this, so I apologize for not knowing.
“I am sorry, it was a very long day,” she added.
The Washington Post‘s Alexandra Petri writes that the “MJ” hosts may have deserved Brand’s on-air critiques. After the jump, watch the interview with Brand that started the whole firestorm.
