Question of the Day: Why Do Black People Have a Love/Hate Relationship With Tyler Perry?

- By Bossip Staff

Yesterday, Spike Lee made a comment that likened Tyler Perry’s content to that of Amos & Andy. Within our community the debate rages on between folks who can’t get enough of Madea, and folks who are completely turned off by his style of comedy, drama, ect.

Many say that the debate is divided by classes of African Americans (low, middle and upper). The idea is that lower to middle class AA’s are die hard fans and upper class AA’s typically don’t enjoy TP material.

We want to know what Bossip folk think? What’s the deal with the Black community and Tyler Perry?

Discuss.
