Russell Brand Threw That iPhone as a Tribute to Steve Jobs

Yesterday, Russell Brand was caught throwing a hissy fit in New Orleans. He was seen snatching an iPhone out of a photog’s hand and then chucking it through the window of a law firm. Of all the windows to throw a cell phone through, a law firm may be the worst.

A man with the company producing the new movie Russell is shooting tried to smooth things over with the firm by offering to pay for the window.

Today, Russell spoke out about his temper tantrum on Twitter saying, “Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iphone irreverently, what I did was a tribute to his memory.”

If I know Steve Jobs, and I like to think I do, he just gave Russell a fist bump from beyond the grave and a nod of approval.

Had it been an iPad, it would have gone up his ass.
