British comedian Russell Brand received a death threat after ridiculing U.S. president GEORGE W. Bush at last month's (Sep08) MTV Video Music Awards.
The comic came under fire from angry TV viewers after branding the president a "retard" during the Hollywood ceremony.
He tells Britain's Radio 1, "(Hosting the awards) was a lot of fun, especially the death threat.
"If you are going to kill someone, don't give them advance notice, that gives you a chance to prepare.
"How can you, while watching the telly, think 'Oh, I don't enjoy this. No, I'm not enjoying this at all. Right, I'm going to kill him'. That's a huge jump."
