Tyler Perry Receives Backlash For White Cast In New Show

38th Annual Kennedy Center Honors Gala

Actor and director Tyler Perry rose to fame by creating films for us and by us. So, his fans were less than thrilled to see the Madea star cast mostly White people in his new project.

His new show, Too Close to Home, premiered on TLC, leaving fans to question whether Tyler abandoned his core fan base.

Tyler, 46, spoke out about the criticism when TMZ caught up with him: “People are people, man. People need to let all that go.”
