According to the News Movement, Burger King, Asos, Barbican, and HelloFresh have all removed their advertising from Rumble as punishment for the platform's continued hosting of Brand and his program, which they want removed from the internet.
Despite having more than 1.4 million devoted followers on Rumble, these corporations want the video platform to delete Brand's account. YouTube recently suspended Brand's ability to earn money on its platform, and now the witch hunters want Rumble to do the same.
According to Brand, these continued efforts to block him from making a living online are occurring "in the context of the online safety bill," a proposed piece of legislation in the United Kingdom that would drastically impede online free speech.

The good news for Brand is that Rumble does not in any way appear poised to punish him simply because some witch hunters in the UK Parliament, led by Conservative chair of the culture, media, and sports committee Caroline Dinenage, wrote a letter to Rumble demanding Brand's removal.
After Dinenage begged Rumble to remove Brand's account because he "may be able to profit from his content on the platform," Rumble itself responded to say that Dinenage's behavior is "deeply inappropriate."
In a public statement on X (formerly Twitter), Rumble called Dinenage's letter "disturbing" and "dangerous." Rumble proceeded to reiterate its stance that the internet should be a place "where no one arbitrarily dictates which ideas can or cannot be heard, or which citizens may or may not be entitled to a platform."
"Singling out an individual and demanding his ban is even more disturbing given the absence of any connection between the allegations and his content on Rumble," the company added.
All of this began, by the way, after the Sunday Times, the Times, and Channel 4 Dispatches banded together to conduct an "investigation" accusing Brand of rape, sexual assault, and emotional abuse between the years of 2006 and 2013. Brand denies all allegations.
In his first public comments since the allegations went public, Brand posted a three-minute video to YouTube, Rumble, and X calling the allegations "extraordinary and distressing" while further explaining that he believes they stem from a government that is willing to do anything to censor him.
The Times estimates that Brand earns about £27,000 (about $33,000) a month from his Rumble channel. He had also been earning about £1,000,000 (about $1.22 million) a year from YouTube before his channel was de-monetized.
Rumble appears to be one of the safest places for Brand to make a living without fear of being de-platformed. Right on the Rumble website it is stated that the platform is "immune to cancel culture," and has an aim to "restore the internet to its roots by making it free and open once again."
Founded in 2013, Rumble really gained popularity after the stolen 2020 election when its monthly user base soared from two million to over 20 million users. As of 2022, Rumble now has about 78 million active users globally.
