Online hate for Mrs Brown’s Boys really got me down, but comments about fans were even worse, says Danny O’Carroll


Mrs Brown’s Boys star Danny O’Carroll has revealed he no longer reads hate comments aimed at the sitcom.

The 39-year-old, better known as Buster Brady on hit comedy Mrs Brown's Boys, said he doesn’t take negative feedback personally and still enjoys every second of filming.

Danny, whose dad is show creator Brendan, said: “It’s either people like it, or they don’t. If they don’t like it, they don’t like it. It doesn’t bother me.”

However, the Dubliner said one thing that used to grate on him was fans receiving backlash for simply liking the show.

He said: “What used to bother me was people attacking the fans for liking it.

“I used to be on social media checking out how everything was going.

“Now I don’t go near social media when the show is after being on or read what people are saying.

“For years, I have stopped doing all that because it would get you down.

“You would have 100 comments, and there would be one bad comment, and that’s the only comment you’d be thinking about. It’s ridiculous how it works.

“So I stay away from it all now.”

The star will be reappearing on screens once again this year as filming gets underway for a Mrs Brown’s Boys mini-series in April.

Danny said: “We haven’t done a series in maybe ten years. All we’ve been doing is Christmas specials, so I think there’s like 27 Christmas specials done already.

He joked: “We just haven’t had the chance to do a series, so it will be nice to do an episode with no f***ing Christmas trees for once.”

The dad of two recently jetted off to Amsterdam on a mystery holiday with co-star and long-time pal Paddy Houlihan, better known as Dermot Brown from Mrs Brown’s Boys, as the pair took part in RTE’s High Road Low Road.

Speaking about working with his childhood friend Danny said: “I love working with Paddy. It just wouldn’t be the same for me if Paddy wasn’t there.

“That was one of the things when we did the movie. All my stuff was being shot, and I was on set on my own.

"Paddy wasn’t with me, so I hated doing the movie because Paddy wasn’t there with me.”

He added that the pair would be teaming up once again on an exciting new project.

“Paddy has written his own show called Shedites, and that’s going to be f***ing brilliant, so that’s a new show we’re going to be doing soon. Paddy’s a great writer, he’s a superb writer so I’m producing that and we’ll be acting in it.”

Asked about the future of Mrs Brown’s Boys, Danny said: “Whatever happens to Mrs Brown, we’ll be there all the time.

“If the BBC want it and dad wants to do it, we’re behind him 100 per cent.”

You can catch Danny and Paddy on High Road, Low Road, on Tuesday, February 7, at 7pm on RTE One.
