Brand hits back at commenters who slammed his Oirish accent

Russell Brand has hit back at facebook commenters who slagged off his terrible Irish accent in a recent clip on his regular YouTube broadcast.

His accent was awful, to be fair.

"Ah, I'm up for the craic - top of the morning to you."

Digs referred to his "woeful stereotypical irish accent along with phrases...I have never heard in my life" and a "hideous accent".

However, Russell's not taking criticism of his accent lying down.

Russell counters that he's had his own accent mocked and admits tongue-in-cheek in today's video posted to facebook: "I didn't like it actually".
