Danny Dyer on Twitter break

Share article:

Danny Dyer is on a break from Twitter after receiving too much online "aggro".

The 40-year-old actor - who has played Mick Carter on "EastEnders" since 2013 - is taking some time off from social media because his vocal opinions cause him too much drama.

According to the Daily Star newspaper, he told an insider at the BBC One soap's studios: "I'm on a break from all that - it's too much agg."

He has not posted to his 1.24 million followers on the mini-blogging site since January 25, when he tweeted his support for a campaign to bring an unwell Brit back to the UK from the Philippines, and he retweeted a post from his favourite football team West Ham United last month.

But his social media has stayed silent since, and he admitted to being misunderstood online.

He said: "I have been called a misogynist, some people called me homophobic or racist because I am a lad. None of it is true whatsoever."

Before appearing as family man Mick in "EastEnders", Danny expected he would be playing a villain.

Speaking about breaking stereotypes in his role as the Queen Vic landlord, he said: "When they asked me to possibly do "EastEnders" I assumed it was going to be a gangster, go up against Phil Mitchell, come in with a sawn-off shotgun.

"It was the complete opposite.

"One of the first things Dominic [Treadwell-Collins] said to me was, "You're going to be an alpha male, love your family, you're going to have a gay son, he's going to come out to you and you're going to be fine with it."

"I loved that. He [Dominic] got me [despite] never meeting me before.

"He read some interviews. And I have got this perception of me."

But Danny is still active to his 536,000 Instagram followers, regularly posting pictures of his family and co-stars.
