Emmitt Perry Jr. was born in New Orleans, Louisiana to a mother who taught him about worship and a father who physically abused him so severely, that at the age of sixteen years old, he legally had his name changed so that he would not have any connections to his father. Tyler Perry was also sexual abused by his mother’s friend; along with, three other men. (Hopefully these people are dead because if not; he can easily pay someone to Hostel their asses for him!)
He eventually moved to Atlanta, Georgia with his belongings and personal baggage and in the state of the peach, watched the Oprah Winfrey Show. The topic of the show was the theraputic effect of writing down your emotions. He began to write and those journals lead to the beginning step of Tyler Perry becoming a man with many career titles following his name; such as, actor: director: screenwriter: playwright,: producer: author: and a song writer.
Tyler Perry introduced us to our favorite lady named Madea, (yes she is lady) and we immediately fell in love with her. This tall, 6 feet something, gray haired, volouptous, woman says what she means, and she means what she says and for every person that watches Madea, be it live plays, DVDs or bootleg videos from such and such, who lives at such and such, who sells his movies five for $20.00; I am positive that you understand what I mean.
I believe that Madea is like Tyler Perry’s Superman, and/or alter ego. Through her, he shares his insight on topics that the world would rather not talk about in a hilarious; but yet, genuine manner. I have learned a lot from Madea!
He has a timeline of plays and movies beginning in the year of 1999 until the current, and he is not even close to stopping. In fact, he has recently introduced us to the world of the “Have and Have Nots” which premiered on the OWN netowrk Memorial Day weekend. I heard Steve Harvey say positive comments about the show and he also pledged that he would promote it like crazy. On the other hand, some of Oprah’s dedicated viewers have joined forces with a woman named Eva Vega from Los, Angeles, California to sign petitions for the removal of Tyler Perry’s new show on the basis of not liking the way Mr. Perry is representing and stereotyping Black women.
This woman Eva Vega is not playing either. She has already gotten 200 people to sign!!!
Ginger thought’s for this one is unclear because I understand both parties points of view; however, Eva, why couldn’t you just write a letter to Oprah instead of putting her own place like this? Yep; I would call your actions a tad bit of shade!
