RussellBrand060912_15_200.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (x17online) - It's no laughing matter when it comes to Russell Brand's mother and the comedian took exception to Graham Norton's comments.

During an interview on UK's The Graham Norton Show on Friday, the funnyman went on the offensive after the TV host asked about his public divorce from Katy Perry.

"My mum is here. She got upset when you dragged up my marriage. I saw her cry, Graham," Brand said to Norton. "That's the reality because it's real people, Graham, that's my real mum. I have come here to promote a film and you made my mum cry. I don't see you as that sort of person, Graham."

As Norton attempted to defend his stance, the funnyman continued to lecture Norton.

"What I would have done, mate, in your position, is come up to me before the show and gone, 'Eh, listen it's a bit odd your ex-missus was on last week. I might mention it, is that okay?'" he said.

Brand has since apologized for his actions on Saturday during an event for the Dalai Lama, stating, "I can forgive the human being but not the action."
