Tyler Perry must be stopped

By now I’m sure you fruits have all heard of Tyler Perry. He directed those Madea movies as well as Why Did I Get Married?, which opened this past weekend. I’ve never seen any of his films myself, but I heard they all suck balls, and I’m willing to believe this is true.

However, the guy’s got a legion of fans who would suggest otherwise, and would also like to add that you’re a racist for even having the sheer balls to have such an opinion. Over the past couple of years, they’ve conducted email harassment campaigns against critics who have savaged his films. And recently, they’ve even gone so far as to start harassing reporters who ask him the wrong questions in interviews. No, really.

The other day, some poor bastard out of Sacramento made the mistake of asking Janet Jackson, who’s in Why Did I Get Married?, about that time Justin Timberlake pulled out her old, withered titty during a Super Bowl halftime performance in an interview her and Tyler Perry did to promote their new film. Which seems like a reasonable enough question to me. I mean, that’s been a major issue in this country for the past couple of years now.

I’d direct you to check out the clip for yourself, but it’s already been pulled and replacd with a clip of the guy, accompanied by a waste basket full of 19,000 angry emails he’s received (in a few days, mind you), apologizing and explaining how much he enjoys Tyler Perry’s films, please stop emailing him.

Checkit: Mark Apologizes to Janet Jackson and Tyler Perry

Which begs the question: Is it racist of the largely white mainstream media to give negative reviews to these films that they supposedly just don’t get? I’m gonna go ahead and suggest that it isn’t and, if anything, the mainstream media is doing humanity a grave disservice by beginning to kowtow to this asshole.

For example, in addition to this guy in Sacramento and Pulitzer Prize-winner Roger Ebert, who learned the hard way when he ran a negative one-star review of one of those Madea films a couple of years ago and ended up having to publish this lengthy apology (of sorts), there was the review of Why Did I Get Married? in the New York Times last week, which kinda danced around calling a spade a spade (sorry) and instead made it a point to note that people in screenings have been breaking out into applause and talking back to the screen, as if this was Dreamgirls.

The fuck?

It should be obvious to anyone with the sense god gave those kids who broke into Six Flags and drowned in Thunder River what’s going on here. White people whose job it is to give honest reviews of films are refraining from doing so because they’re afraid of being called a racist. Or maybe they’ve even managed to convince themselves that there’s really something about these films that they just don’t get. (Though why a journalist should have to issue a public apology for asking a question is still beyond me.)

And here’s why this is a problem. First of all, as is the case with BET, this is especially embarrassing, because this is supposed to be the “achievement class” in the black community. I mean, it’s one thing when a bum like T.I. goes out and does something stupid. But when the black middle class embraces such garbage, it lends credence to the theory put forth by this guy James Watson that the reason Africa is dying of AIDS is because black people just aren’t as smart as white people. (Yes, there’s a connection here.)

Also, is there any greater threat to free speech in this country than angry, lonely-ass church-going black women? If you’re noticing a similarity between the harassment campaigns conducted against the journalists who pan these Tyler Perry films and the one conducted against Don Imus, it’s probably because these are the same people. We should be doing anything in our power to kill this nascent movement before it grows to the level of, say, the Christian Right or the Israel Lobby – both of which, I should note, employ similar tactics.

In fact, there’s reason to believe that these groups are already working in concert. For example, it was suggested that one of the reasons President Sieg Howdy was re-elected in ’04 is because he was able to play on the ridonkulous level of homophobia in the black church. And I’ve heard that he’s got several of these black religious leaders in his pocket thanks to his faith-based initiatives, which basically function to funnel tax payers’ dollars into religious institutions in exchange for political support.

So you see, when the mainstream media fails to give Tyler Perry the beating he deserves, this is the kind of shit it feeds into. Who knows what kind of effect it’s going to have in the long run? I know there’s a genuine fear of being branded a racist (and maybe having to take a six-month paid vacation like Don Imus), but fuck that shit. As a black man myself, I’m willing to give any white person who’s up to the task license to ride as hard as possible on the Tyler Perry-ization of black popular culture. After all, the fate of mankind may depend on just that.

      Tyler Perry Movies are great. His last movie showed African Americans in a diffrent light (educated, wealthy, successful, family oriented, and black man taking care of their households) and white people do not like that. I am surprised at how after African Americans are bashing an individual who is going against the status quo and showing Hollywood what we are just as creative as whites and even if they lock us out of the front door then we will kick in the back. He kicked ass at the box office last week. Great Good Tyler Perry. Reporters are paid just like Justin was to embarass Janet Jackson. Remember what family she came from and how many people in the world (not just America) love and support her brother.

    first of all, i am a black woman and have been involved with the israel lobby–i’m not a christian fanatic by any means (shit, i’m at this website)…aipac (the pro-israel lobby) doesn’t employ those tactics to the degree that you infer. if i were u, i wouldn’t believe everything i see and hear–that’s bad journalism.

    the deal on tyler perry movies, and i strongly suggest you watch one, is that they really ARE good movies. i think they get bad reviews b/c untrained eyes are watching them (i.e. white people)…white folks are definitely not used to seeing Blacks portrayed in a positive light and they’re family-oriented. being exposed to something u are unfamiliar with doesn’t always garner a warm reception.

    trust, as an educated, upper middle class Black woman, i had a lot of reluctancy in watching and embracing the tyler perry films, but i think, at least, they’re worth the watch.

    and about people talking back to the screen and applauding–that’s nothing but the call and response nature of our culture

      So white people dont like these movies because they aren’t “trained” to? Thats ridiculous. If something is truly “good” dont you think that a person shouldnt have to be “trained” to recognize it? What you are saying is that blacks are conditioned to look positively at the madness that happens in some of these movies. Some people dont see the entertainment value in a situation like the one that occurs in “diary of a mad black woman”. I dont think its entertaining to see infidelity coupled with violence, joined with loud boisterousness. Im just giving my opinion. Generally speaking, you cant, or shouldnt begin to attack someone because they dont share the same views as you. If some people dont like the movies whats so hard to believe? Like I said above maybe they just arent entertained by the drama. As far as the yelling at the movie screen, that is annoying as hell. Other people paid to watch a movie and hear all the words and Im sure dont care to hear people yelling in the middle of the movie. I dont know about you but I just respect people enough to not impede on their moviegoing experience.

    • Strongblackwoman

      I’m sorry but I’m gonna have to disagree wit you on that one.

      Just because a movie has a heartfelt message, does not mean that it is good.

      I’ve seen all of Tyler Perry’s films and they are all wacky, badly paced, badly acted, badly directed, and terribly written. And don’t get me started on his tv show “House of Payne” which may be the worst sitcom in television history to ever be popular.

      I saw “Why Did I Get Married” and it was Perry’s least worst movie yet but that is a big understatement. The acting was stale from all the cast except Tasha Smith, who shouldn’t even be wasting her time in that movie. Why is it that just because it’s a movie written and directed by a black man with an all black cast black people have to go out in droves to see it? And why is it that when a movie like this gets a bad review it’s all of a sudden because white people “just don’t understand” it?. Last time I checked white reviewers praised movies like “The Color Purple” “Do The Right Thing” “Boyz In The Hood” “Love and Basketball” and “Menace II Society” because those movies had an actual plot line instead of Tyler Perry trying to drag out the same tired “my husband/wife cheats on me” story.

      • ty from linden blvd

        we have to go out in droves and see it because if we don’t who will??shit if black people didn’t support tyler perry 1st he wouldn’t be wher ehe’s at today.i find i crazy u even have to ask that question.

        every other race in this country supports each other but us.when “my big fat greek wedding”dropped u don’t think every person with a ounce of greek blood didn’t go see that movie??

        the one thing i can always say about tyler perry movies/plays is that his characters always have these dark extremely tragic challeneges that they fall and raise up against.its most likely the reason his plays and films have been so successful.

        stop hating ya selfs man….

      Gabi, first of all you’re in with the Jews, the group that “supported us” just to make us musicians and then exploit the last penny out of our pockets.
      Jews look down upon EVERYTHING because that is their religion. When Judgment Day comes, “only the Jews will go up” – right.

      Your argument is garbage, coming straight out of your ass.
      When you say “untrained eyes” and refer to Whites, then you are racist, because your comment is racist. Purely racist.

      I’m black and I hate this nigga’s movies. My girlfriend took me to his latest abortion and I did not like it. We got to stop acting like everything we make is cool and needs our support. It really doesn’t. A bad movie is a bad movie. And staying in your racist lane, Whites make bad movies, too. Nothing wrong or racist to say that.

      When you imbecile ho say that Whites aren’t used to see Blacks in a positive light…EVER HEARD OF THE COSBY’S?
      Wasn’t that a long running success?

      You are a worthless cow and I think you have deep deep issues with yourself.

      And talking about the elements of “our culture” – I was embarrassed. I paid fucking 10.50 $ and the ticket for my girl to sit down and watch a movie. I don’t want to be bothered and harassed by animal-niggas who scream and yell and laugh for one straight hour in a non-funny movie, and then turn around and say “it’s cool, thats how Blacks are”.
      Btw, you see that your glorious excuse is very racist?

      Let me tell you, that is not how “we” are.
      Nothing wrong with behaving like a human being. Nothing wrong to be in a movie theater and be quiet. If I want interaction and yelling and screaming, I can go to a bar. Or to a strip club, as your husband does. Anything wrong with it? No, I mean that’s “how we are” – no?

      Please die. Please.

      No… they arent GOOD movies. Regardless of who is watching them, from an actual cinematic viewpoint- his movies are lame and half assed. As a directer, he needs to learn a thing about interesting camera ankles and he & his DP need to about scene composition, As a writer– fuck it, he needs to hire an actual writer that doesnt wrote a script that create caricatures of people instead of creating actual people and create a story that doesn’t treat the audience as if they are4 years old and need the entire exposition literally spelled out in detail.

    “Is there any greater threat to free speech in this country than angry, lonely-ass church-going black women?”

    This is an especially dangerous group comprised of reformed hoes, scorned women, gold diggers and the disillusioned. You never want to get caught up with a chick that will freak off Saturday night and then try to get you to give your money to her and the pastor come Sunday. Tyler Perry looks like one of ‘em.

  • Incilin

    Roger Ebert didn’t really apologize, he stood by his original review as he always does.

    He wrote: “I have re-read my original review, and see no need to change a word. It expresses what I think about “Diary,” and a critic is worthless if he starts writing what he thinks his readers want to read. He becomes the dummy and his readers become ventriloquists.”

    Roger Ebert often writes articles where he presents commentary on films he’s recently reviewed or things that have incited some sort of discussion for whatever reason (Movies like Passion of the Christ had a commentary article, but so did the latest Bourne flick)

    Aside from that, I’m with you on this one. I don’t know all that much about Tyler Perry either, but it’s unfair to call all white reviewers racist just because they don’t like his work. In fact, even some of the black reviewers didn’t like some of his films.

  • kevin


    i am not sure how to say this, his movies are coon movies for black people that think they are better than other black people, i.e people in the black churches. that old “they are niggers and we are black” bullshit. watching his movies is like reading a book full of stereo types.

    • TVO

      kevin- there is a difference between niggas and black people. Niggas don’t change. Black people do. You know what I’m talkin about. What do you mean “coon”? Are you a racist? If you are it ain’t nothing wrong with that. I’m black and i’m not a big fan of multiculturalism and diversity myself. Tyler Perry only portray middle class blacks in his films. I mean, we do have blacks that are really doing good out there. Why not show it. I’m tired of looking at the ghetto movies black people come out with all the time. Let him make money. Everybody else is. Frankly, i’m tired of seeing white people on the big and small screen.

    I can understand people wanting “positive” messages, but that doesn’t make the output good. I had the misfortune of watching some bootleg copies of his TV show with some relatives. It was some of the worst shit I’ve ever seen…and I’ve seen “Homeboys in Outer Space.” Terrible script, nonsensical plot, shitty acting and casting–simplistic, preachy trash.

    It goes to show you that Bible thumpers will excuse anything as long as it hides behind Jesus.




    Tyler Perry is a Gay Black Male who is “Trapped In The Closet”, whom cater to angry ass Black Females who want to dominate the African-American Community through Nazi-like properganda tactics off brain-washing millions upon millions of Black Females into thinking they are the Head of the Household instead of the Man. Tyler Perry is just another lackey in the Cult Of Oprah, whom is dispersed upon Black America to takeover in the hearts and minds of it’s populus so that Blacks may be receptive to the Thought that “Black Men ain’t shit, and WE(Black Females) can control our Communities without them!” It’s the 7th Sign of the Coming of Bozo De Clowne XI The Divine!

      I agree with you and LOL the writer of this post, didnt do his home work and assuming to much. so he’s really made a @$$ out of himself on this one.

  • Apollo Moses

    Perry has bank rolled a ton of paper focusing on a market of church going black folks, passing off cornball theatrics that’s wholesome and harmless entertainment in their view. I can’t bear to watch any of it and I bet the only fellas that do are either limp wrist or ruled by the lady of the house. All of the films are just too predictable…or should I say…some ole bullsh%*
    Keep flowin Bol with the common sense

    i said my piece on t. perry’s movies; that’s all that matters.

  • kville lostboy 504

    we need to stop hating on tyler perry and other black figure’s that are in the public eye… at the end of the day they are just doing what they need to do to eat (hustle) plain and simple… tyler perry bring’s a positive message and that’s something we need today as a whole and as a black community… so STOP HATING AND STOP THE VIOLENCE!!!

  • jamaal

    first of all I am not a fan of T.Perry but I think hustle flow was coonery and they said it was so great fuck wack as 36 got awards for it and no black people said shit about white people just love stupid niggas acting like pimps just think back to super fly,Dolemite and they love SNopp dumb pimp shit to fuck they said X was A bad movie to I say fuck what they say and stop hating on something u don’t understand so watch some of the movies and then judge for your self because u are worst than the white man because they think jezzy and superman and wipe me down and chicken noddle soup is catchy and I say so is Aids that don’t make it a good thing fuck u very much and have a nice day house niggas

    Regarding Tyler Perry’s movies…my sister and I were watching “Diary of a Mad Black Woman” one day, I decided to watch it with her, since I didn’t have anything to do…My sister was on the couch laughing her ass off, she’s cackling really loud, and I’m just sitting beside her, mute. I didn’t think the movie was hilarious at all, and it even seemed fake it times, especially the end where everyone in the church was singing. I wasn’t feeling “Diary”. I don’t even remember anything that happened in that sh*t.

    Shamar Moore was looking like a f*ckin’ homothug though, I can tell you that.

    My friends have seen all of Tyler Perry’s works. I haven’t, and I don’t feel it’s urgent to see any of his movies and plays. I don’t see what’s so interesting about dude. His sh*t is mediocre at best. But I don’t say sh*t to them about how I feel about Tyler Perry’s stuff because they’re gonna look at me weird, like I’m not black or some sh*t. He makes his movies for angry black females, and I don’t think I fit into that category.

    I know my sh*t is long, but I wanted to say something.

  • Vega diamond

    hey Im black and I don’t like his films either…lol…

    what the fuck you going to say to me????

  • May

    Damn c. gabi.

    They went at you hardbody.


  • OrangeJuiceJones

    Who cares what any white or hispanic people have to say about this matter??!?!!?

    Now… them Madea movies are weird and I cant vibe with them, but Daddy’s Little Girls was a good movie on some real shit that totally countered the stereotypes he continued to rehash with the Madea joints.

    Besides the only clowns that cant relate are those who aint never grew up in working or middle-class African-American households.

    Finally, why dont any of you other bastards that spend all this time making Bol a net celeb with your million and one opinions work on creating some shit of your own. It’s not exactly like most of yall are on some righteous, non-capitalism, ultimate positivity do-gooder vibe anyway. im by no means the man’s biggest fan but I can sidestep most of his rhetoric and respect the man’s grind.

  • ruff huff

    the point isnt being whether or not he or she thinks the movies are good… its that fact people are being labeled racists because they dont like movies i mean shit… a lot of good movies dont get great reviews

  • snc


    Like it or not Tyler Perry has invented a formula that works because this “corny shyt” is what is happening in our community. In “Diary” how many of you have a talented family member that uses crack? I do. How many of you had a crazy gun toting relative? I did. For some of us that have grown up in the South, this happens all of the time. Like him or not his movies reflect the crazy shyt that is going on in the black community. I don’t think he cares about what critics think.

    Oh, and before the Janet Jackson interview the interviewer agreed not to broach the J. Timberlake issue and was warned that if he mentioned it that both Janet and Tyler would walk. And he went there anyway. He needed to be treated like that. What was the purpose of bringing up the issue?

    I don’t know if what he’s doing is good or bad for the community, but he’s representing his experiences, not yours or mine.

    Bol, you and I aren’t in perfect unison on this one. I would be down to see Janet’s nipples anytime.

    As far as Madea and the Tyler brand go, brotha I am with you. Dave Chapelle said once that he was asked to put on a dress in a movie, and he was like ” why do black men always have to put on a dress to be funny?” I am a member of the Black middle class and proud, I have read
    ” The Fire Next Time” as well as “Catcher in the Rye” and they are both classics. Art presents an opportunity for one culture to expose itself to another, to break down stereotypes and in some cases reinforce them. It’s unfortunate that someone who’s as intelligent as Tyler Perry hasn’t taken the opportunity to do that. It seems like he’s created a chitlin circuit for film.

    What’s even more important is that intelligent Black folks with careers that have spanned decades have decided to be in these “films”
    Boris Kudjoe, Maya Angelou, Janet Jackson, Jill Scott and Malik Yoba to name a few. And Nas calls Taye Diggs and Cuba Gooding Jr. Uncle Tom’s because they have chosen to marry outside of their race. Give me Brown Sugar and Men of Honor anyday.

    The core values in the movie are great. Family and solidarity. I’m all for it, I just don’t understand the jiggabooing in a dress. Why? Why? Maybe I just don’t understand, maybe I’m a snob. I definitely consider this to be on the lower end of the totem pole of Art. Black folks have such rich complex histories and stories, why not tell them?

    The men and women of the Black church do great things, and their power is frequently quite helpful. But far too often their eye is off the ball, if you’re homophobic be homophobic,even though it’s absurd. Just don’t let homophobia drive you to push a lever for a racist classist bastard.

    the bottom line here is tyler perry made 21.5 mil and more has the #1 movie and whether he is gay or straight doesnt matter one thing he is and thats a film maker a black one at that that you bol and them crackers dont like to see a black man do well and to the rest of u bloggers I bet none on this blog has 21.5 mil in their bank account and if you did you would not be on this hating as blog

    bottom line is tyler perry made 21.5 million and went #1 for that week and those crackers didnt like that as well as you bol.shouldnt make a difference if he is gay or straight one thing is for sure and that he is a film maker and those crackers dont like when a black man stands out. so stop hating on tp because he aint on this broke as blog and he’s spending his 21.5 mil and more

  • Cuban Link

    Blacks are some vengeful motherfuckers.They flipped the “slavery” thing on white people.Back in the day, a black would get hung for just calling a white girl “baby”. Now if a white person calls a black girl a “hoe” the rest of his career and social life are down the crapper.Obviously, blacks had it a lot worse, but still, its funny how in about 40 years racism completely flipped.

    Maybe in another 40 there will be a happy medium.I mean Why Did I Get Married looked like a homo middle aged chick flick, and they always get 1-2 stars, especially if Cameron Diaz is in it, which usually is the case.But since this one was for blacks mainly, it has to get good reviews by white people.Only because Tyler Perry is playing the innocent image though.Maybe hes trying to make blacks look good, but if he does it in a shitty way why shouldnt it get shitty raitings?

    Get Rich or Die Tryin didnt get hot reviews, and where the fuck is the protest for that!?

  • kritiq

    fuck white peoples reviews why should black people even care what these people think? maybe if perry’s movies had niggas, hoes, bitchies, guns, 28 inch rims than it they would get good reviews and most of you who love scare face would be jumping on he’s dick.


    Why is it that Black People always gotta bring down another black person doing good but, a nigga like 50 cent is praised?
    He Probably mad Tyler Didn’t Put Him In one of his movies.
    Ya’ll hate to damn much.
    I Like Tyler Perry’s Movies,if you actually watch and pay attention,he has messages in them.

    Tyler Perry is a racist bastard, he just plays into racial stereotypes; the acting in his movies is horrible, the writing is atrocious.

    I had an ex drag me to one of these shitfests and I damn near broke up with her right then and there. A corny ass movie with shitty acting, shitty writing and shitty directing. Dudes movies have just as many racial stereotypes as any white written script out.

    A movie about an opinionated, church going, overweight old black woman with a heart of gold? Shit, add Martin Lawrence and we got Big Mommas House 3

  • geico lizard

    you are right BOL because roger ebert and his co host gave a madea movie a bad review and called it stupid but the next day eberts black wife went off on him and made him apologize for the review and change his opinion. so you cant say anything bad about tyler perry on a tv show or you will get attacked by his followers. i admit i did see two of his plays and one of his movies when i was dating my ex girlfriend but after that relationship ended i havent even thought about checking out his tbs show or going to any of his movies.

  • http://afwewd 8izenuff

    Hey, kritiq, are you fuckin retarded. I dont understand how Bol(a black guy) talking about a movie(black oriented) that was made by a shitty director(black guy) can automaticly spark rasicm towards another race. White people reveiw movies because its in the theater and 98% of movie reveiwers are white, so stop with your steriotypical “whites only hated this movie because there wasnt no hoes” bullshit and pull your head out your ass

  • MsNigga2u!

    First off, it is really embarassing for ur wack ass to write a fuckin blog like that, I was with you on previous blogs, but now you’re just full of hot ass air, no substance at all. With the Janet interview, what the fuck does her nipple have to do with the damn movie? it is rather sexist to even considering asking a woman about something so damn personal, and you’re saying that it was something the general public needed insight on YEARS later?! Think about it.
    Secondly, and this is for anyone who agrees with the jerk (who admitted to not seeing any of Perry’s work), understand that as a fucking people it doesnt make sense to further separate the “seculars” from the damn “congregation,” douchebag. it’s bad enough there is all sorts of tension within the black community, but for one guy with an imagination- a black guy, because if he were white, there wouldnt be any flap about his work or his vision- its a fuckin crime to producing plays and films about problems people face in life?? And your hating ass has nothing better to do than to sit and fucking hate on a millionaire who got where he is today by simply having a bit of fuckin faith! YOU write a damn play and tell me how easy it is to picture your own fuckin reality.
    I happen to be a fan of black fuckin art, ANY kind of black art. I consider Perry to be an artist, and even if his work doesnt accurately depict black people, i generally admire and respect his drive to be a success in Hollywood. We got people hanging nooses all over NYC, and you’re fuckin worried about Madea. Get a fuckin life.
    i’m done.

    TP2.com is definitely the thinking man’s minstrel. Shout to Dave Chappelle for not wearing the wig and dress for $50M.

    I remember seeing a picture of TP2.com wearing a shirt on the set of one of his movies that read “Profanity-Free Set.” As if not cussing made it righteous.

    I’d respect him if he became the first cat to wear a “Nolo” shirt. Even though that shit’ll never happen. That Madea shit and his willingness to exploit his molestation as a child for public sympathy adds up to an excuse for possible man fuckery.

    His next film might just be about Bulldogs, the club Ma$e was circling before he ghost-rode the whip into a pole (nolo) trying to pick up x-dressers.

  • DukeJohnson

    Other than the Madea character, how are his movies stereotypical? Tyler Perry usually depicts his characters as professionals or hard-working blue collar black people. They also happen to have real issues that many can relate to. So how is that stereotypical? If you don’t like the Christianity angle, thats fine, but don’t say its stereotypical when it hardly is. I wonder how many commenting have actually seen a Tyler Perry movie. And please if you’re taking Bol’s opinion at face value, then I’m truly sorry for you. He is nothing but a minstrel himself. A self-hating black man who really wants to be white. A younger version of Uncle Ruckus from Boondocks. Don’t drink his Uncle Tom-flavored kool aid, form your own opinions.

  • Rues

    Speaking as a white man, I just can’t stand to see blacks potrayed in a positive light in any mass media outlet. Something just doesn’t feel right about it.

    I agree with so many other intelligent posters here- white people just shouldn’t be allowed to review black peoples films. They can’t put them into context. It’s like a fucking paradigm shift.

    Hey, and after whites can’t review blacks films, maybe, say, water fountains?

  • DevoG

    I never thought I would run across a real life “Uncle Ruckus”, from The Boondocks. You are REALLY trying your best to make it into “white heaven”. “News Flash” Ronald Regan will not be there waiting for you. How can you even begin to come down on Tyler Perry when you admit that you haven’t seen any of his movies or plays. For the record Madea’s Family Reunion was actually pretty good, if for nothing else the scene/speech with Sicily Tyson(I know, I know) at the end was brilliant. As far as the interview with Janet goes, you lose. The anchor was a complete asshole. He took his shots when he could because 1.) He’s a lame(even his co-anchors were looking like wtf? are you doing) and 2.) this was the only time in his life he would be able to speak to either of them like that. You think he would have asked that question in person? No! Better yet do you think he would have asked that question to Timberlake, in person or on the air? Hell no! He’s a coward that took his shot, on air, at a woman. A soft spoken women at that. Let that have been Kesia Cole. Right?

    • complexndope


      Did you just say that “Madea’s Family Reunion” was good????

      That movie damn near made me wanna punch a wall for having to pay 10 dollars to see that trash!

      Bad writing, bad acting, and bad directing.

      And just because Cicely Tyson pulls out the same tired speech from “Sounder” does not automatically make the movie good. That’s like saying if Cicely was in “Catwoman” or “Gigli” saying the same shit it changes the fact that the movie is pure ass.

      People like yourself need to go out and get cultured. That is whats wrong with black people today we aren’t all cultured with the best r&b, best rap, or best films which is why we have crappy artists like Soulja Boy, Hurricane Chris, T-Pain, Akon, and Chris Brown who end up making crappy music and people putting them on the top of the charts no matter how weak their music is. Same goes for Tyler Perry’s catalogue of crap.

      Why don’t you go to a Blockbuster and rent “Do The Right Thing,” and watch the first season of “The Wire” and then come back on here and say “Madea’s Family Reunion” is a good movie.

    I can’t believe Christians are supporting a cross-dresser, lol, that reeks of irony. If the movies suck, which in my estimation they probably do considering, hey, the main character is a cross dresser. I’m all for family values and things of that nature, but don’t confuse morality with acting, they’re two totally different things. Denzel acted his ass off in Training Day, and his character was completely devoid of morals. Oh, and for the record, Scarface was GARBAGE. Carlito’s Way beat the holy fucking shit outta that.

    It is amazing to me that someone can comment on someone’s work when he hasn’t made the attempt to view it.

As you are taught in journalist 101, make the attempt to view the work before you comment. This is what’s wrong with hip hop.

    And just for the record, most white people know that this is only acting. The majority of Black people are not the Cosbys, the Jeffersons, Madea or the like. Give white folks some credit, please for having a brain.

    So many times we put our negative thoughts to an already successful task. Obviously he’s doing something right, every movie has blown the ticket box out of the park. Every play has had a sold out crowd. On a personal note I give Perry his props, because he’s made it known that he’s not doing this for riches and/or fame. But for the people and the glory of God.

    ARE YOU?

    Maybe we should take our comments off of someone else and consider ourselves. But if I was Perry I wouldn’t even worry about it…hey, even Jesus was stoned before recieving his thrown!

    Its very sad that you are in the position of reaching and possibly influencing so many people’s opinions and yet, you were too lazy to even watch Mr. Perry’s film before forming your non-validated opinion,your publisher should require you to at least watch a film before being able to form an opinion. Is that too much to ask!

    tyler perry movies are terrible,and as for that reporter apologizing for asking a legitimate question to Janet “big bore” Jackson,give me a break,that reporter has no balls.who the hell does Janet Jackson think she is? the queen of England,he should of asked her why she can’t speak for herself instead of sitting there like a wounded puppy dog.
    as for Tyler Perry the questions are why he steals other movie plots and why he’s such an ego maniac he needs to put his name in the title of every crappy movie he directs,
    Janet & Tyler looked like two Hollywood a-holes who think they’re above everyone else.

    bol, the above-referenced apology from the reporter is not stemmed from dude ripping the flick apart, which I’m not against, it’s based on dude rudely ripping into Janet for showing her withered tat, like SIX years ago while he should have been professional enough to just stick to the script and do the required b.s. talk thing with Perry and Jackson, even if he didn’t give a flying fuck about negros and their negro ass marriage issues. I saw the original clip and dude was acting like the stereotypical “I don’t give a shit about yer effin Black movie and I’m gonna Tom Cruise it and get my ratings up by shitting on an easy prey (Ms. Jackson)” white boy. For real brah, dude went in all racist like and shit, and it was in no way cool. I was also one of the cats that emailed the reporter and threatened viral jihad on his ass [||] via the internet. Yo, I hate bad Black movies more than anyone, that’s why I so rarely eff wit ‘em, so I’m cool with the bad press, but dude overstepped his boundaries. Until I see the media outlets gunning for Justin Timberlake’s ass [||] with regard to his involvement in “Nipple Gate’, I gotta call it how I see it.

    Just on the nature of this comment, one more [||] for gp.

    real talk, his movies do suck. i have unfortunatley watched his first two. what pisses me off the most about them is that it endorses the (bullshit) notion that god cures everything (even aids?). thats one of the problems with black america, if black people got off of their damned knees begging for hope of forgiveness and started seizing what is ours, it would be a brand new world.

    also, his movies generally just suck…they are really bad. goodnight

    Yes I am about the hate on a Black man.

    If my friends drag me to see one more of this misogynistic fucks films, I swear I will pull out a razor and slit open a vein in the theatre.

    I know, you ask why do I go? Because we have a deal we each have to see a movie that each one of us suggest. It keeps it fair. But as far as Tyler Perry’s films are concerned there ain’t nothing “fair” about having to sit through this drivel.

    White critics who don’t like his work are not racist, nor are they ill informed, they are absolutely correct.

    His films are poorly and simplistically written, badly acted, also let me add horribly directed. He is selling “faith based” pablum to middle-class Black America and trying to pass it off as entertainment or worse yet, art.

    I don’t need anyone telling me that as a Black woman all I need is a good Black man to solve all my problems. Just throw away your individualism, your career, your strength and submit, because life would be so much better if you just let your man lead the way. A fairy tale if I ever heard one. What happened to full partnership in marriage?

    And, Oprah needs to have her ass kicked for promoting Perry and this crap.

    i used to be a tyler perry hater…then i watched some of his plays,and while i could do with out all the singing they were funny,inspirational and to my suprise,in many ways insightful.

    bol your a smart guy,sometimes your blogs are worth something,but you seem to have a deep seeded hatred for ya own kind.nigga i seen janet’s tities,and they far from old and withered.keep this up and we might have to call the drop squad on you.

    I’m pleased Tyler Perry has found a career for himself. But his movies are awful and Why Did I Get Married was campy and…awful. The actors did the best they could with it. But the scriptwriting was something out of a high school play.
