to brush the haters off
ne pas preter attention a (l'avis de) ses detracteurs


Explanation:
Au vu du contexte, il ne sagit pas de se debarrasser de ses detracteurs dans le sens propre de la metaphore du coup de brosse, mais de ne pas se laisser destabiliser/ toucher/ influencer par les critiques.


> Ne pas preter plus d'attention qu'il n'en faut aux critiques.
> Rejeter les critiques.
> Rester stoique face aux critiques
> Laisser les critiques glisser comme de l'eau sur le dos d'un canard (jolie expression belge)
