My man Tyler Perry showed us how he really felt about your boy Spike Lee’s negative comments towards his films. Spike has been known to make a few derogatory comments about the “quality” of Tyler’s films. Perry has remained a gentleman and professional thus far but evidently he is now fed up. When recently asked about the comments, Tyler had this to say: “Spike can go straight to hell!” SN: I wonder if he said it in his Tyler or Madea voice LOL

Tyler also had this to say:

“I’m so sick of hearing about damn Spike Lee.  Spike can go straight to hell!  I am sick of him talking about me.  I am sick of him saying, ‘This is a coon, this is a buffoon.’ I am sick of him talking about black people going to see movies. This is what he said: ‘You vote by what you see’ — as if black people don’t know what they want to see.

“I am sick of him. He talked about Whoopi, he talked about Oprah, he talked about me, he talked about Clint Eastwood. Spike needs to shut the hell up!”

“I don’t even understand it.  There [are] so many people who walk around, and this is where the whole Spike Lee [issue] comes from — the negativity, ‘This is Stepin Fetchit,’ ‘This is coonery,’ ‘This is buffoonery’ — and they try to get people to get on this bandwagon with them, to get this mob mentality to come against what I’m doing.”

“What they don’t understand is this, and this is what I want to make perfectly clear to everybody, especially black people: I’ve never seen Jewish people attack Seinfeldand say, ‘This is a stereotype.’ I’ve never seen Italian people attack The Sopranos, I’ve never seen Jewish people complaining about Mrs. Doubtfire or Dustin Hoffman and what they were doing in Tootsie. I never saw it. It’s always black people, and this is something that I cannot undo.”

I think Tyler makes a good point. He should keep doing his thang. As long as people go see the movies, he should keep making them. His movies employ many black actors and actresses some of which we haven’t seen for years. We all know everyone has an opinion on everything. Sometimes people should keep them to themselves. Hint hint Mr. Lee. LOL
