Se le sale

I read this comment on youtube but I just don't know what "se le sale" could mean in this context.

De repente se le sale un acento brasileño

Suddenly .. an brazilian accent.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, I agree with Chileno.
"Se le sale un acento..." it's pretty colloquial.
"Correctly" should be "le sale un acento..." or "empieza a hablar con un acento..."

In British English we'd translate it as "...And suddenly he came out with a Brazilian accent!".
