Russell Brand has said he believes that tickling children should be ILLEGAL – unless they’re old enough to give consent.
The comedian has vowed to punch anyone who tries to tickle his kids in the face.
The actor, who shares two daughters with wife Laura Gallacher, went as far as to say that he regrets tickling his friend David Baddiel’s son Ezra in the past.
He told The Daily Star: “To recall doing this to Ez fills me with dreadful shame and makes me want to punch myself in the face.
“Which is what I will do to anyone who tickles either of my daughters until they are old enough to decide for themselves whether they want to be tickled or not, which by my reckoning is at 35.”
The outspoken star said he “loathes” the act of tickling, and that it takes away a child’s right to “their own space and peace”.
He added: “Would you do it to an adult? Would you insert your rigid fingers into their belly or their armpits? Of course not.”
Do you think he makes a good point?
