Mrs Brown’s Boys star, Brendan O’Carroll, outraged The One Show fans last night after joking about Tyler Perry’s ‘colour’. Watch the clip below:
Appearing side by side via video link, the unlikely pair were interviewed ahead of the release of Tyler’s new film, A Madea Homecoming.
Brendan, 66, was then asked whether the US star could ever appear on Mrs Brown’s Boys.
Gesturing to his own face, the Irish actor replied: “So far, we haven’t had anyone of his colour in there so I don’t know if we could have him in.
“But you know what, I’d love that, but I think more importantly I’d love to do another move with him.”
Tyler, 52, appeared to shrug off the comment, as he repeated ‘nobody my colour’ while Brendan pointed to his face again.
The A-list actor and director added: “Time to change the world. Diversity rules, here we go.”
The controversial remark resulted in viewers sharing their outrage on social media, as one person tweeted: “Can’t believe what Brendan O’Carroll has just said on the One Show.”
“Did Brendan O’Carroll just saw Tyler Perry couldn’t be in Mrs Brown’s Boys because he’s black on The One Show!?” questioned another.
“Brendan O’Carroll’s attempt at being funny towards @tylerperry on BBC One Show tonight was quite embarrassing, I’m sure no malice was meant but that comment was wrong on so many levels,” wrote a third person.
Despite the backlash on social media, The One Show host, Lauren Laverne, brushed over the comment, as she told the pair: “A big thank you to both of you. Tyler and Brendan, thank you for joining us.”
Brendan is set to appear as Agnes Brown, a guest role in Tyler’s new film, as well as playing an elderly character.
The actor is most known for creating and starring in Mrs Brown’s Boys, a sitcom featuring members from his real-life extended family.
Following a New Year’s Day special, the divisive series was met with a mixed response, with some going as far to say it ‘ruined 2022’.
Writing on Twitter, one critic said: "2022 was going so well but Mrs Brown's Boys has just come on!"
Echoing the anger, another chimed in: "Sooner catch Happy New Year's Omicron than watch Mrs Brown's Boys!"
"Just my annual tweet to remind you all that Mrs Brown's Boys is dog sh*t and not funny in the slightest," put a third.
