Tyler Perry Controversy
Word is Tyler Perry fired his entire staff a couple days back prior to the last episode of The Boondocks. Last week’s episode basically exposed a side of Tyler Perry no one was aware of. The show portrayed him as a gay man and how he lives an “over the top” lifestyle. I guess we won’t be expecting any more of his movies/plays.
UPDATE: Tyler Perry’s statement in response to the rumors:
Just like the Spike Lee situation, I feel that “no response” is the best response. I’m just gonna leave it at that…
But I will tell you this… there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I’m suing The Boondocks. Those are all lies. I’m not suing anybody over that.
And I haven’t fired anyone because of that show either. I don’t know where all that came from.
