Russell Brand pranks followers on Twitter

LOS ANGELES

He was supposed to perform in Canada, but said he couldn't make it because he wasn't allowed in the country.

Hours before the show was supposed to start, he posted on Twitter: "I'm sorry. I can't enter Canada. We must abolish the borders between our nations and our minds."

But according to the Hollywood Reporter, it turns out Brand's plane never left Los Angeles because of mechanical problems.

It wouldn't have been the first time Brand is not let into a country. He was deported from Japan back in May because of previous criminal offenses.
