Tyler Responds to Spike Lee Calling Madea a Coon…

- By Bossip Staff

In a recent interview, Spike Lee refers to Tyler Perry’s TBS sitcoms Meet the Browns and House of Payne as coonery and buffoonery. Tyler Perry responded to Spike’s comments in his interview on 60 Minutes which airs tonight at 7pm.

Pop the Hood for TP’s response… He’s PISSED!!!

First Hip Hop beef, now Hollyweird beef… this is getting a little out of hand. If these two could come together and make a film with Tyler’s comedy and drama, then add that Spike Lee substance, that would make one hell of a film.

We love Madea just as much as the next person, but do you think Spike Lee may have a point???

    hello

    Sorry Mr. Perry but we’ve moved beyond characters like Madea and Brown. We don’t need bait to catch your point.If you haven’t heard, African-Americans are smart enough to be presidents now.

    He said “Speaking to them, speaking to us.” To establish that Madea and his other characters are true reflections of real people. Are they? I think there are some out there that may relate to Madea but she is not an actual representation on all Black American women nor are his other characters. Maybe Spike Lee would be more respectful of Tyler Perry’s work if he had other Characters that did not seem like decendants of the “Good Times” family.

    Spike is just jealous. Tyler Perry knows what he is doing. He knows a ministry opportunity and he is brilliant on how he does it. Its Tyler’s time and no one can stop him. This is God’s work. Spike, you had your time. This man is creating opportunity for many people. There is alot about Tyler Perry that people dont even realize. Spike, SHUT UP and COMB YOUR HAIR

  • Seriously

    There’s no diversity concerning black people in the media. Everyone under 50 is a loud, ignorant illiterate hip-hiop thug or hoodrat. Everyone over 50 is a loud, illiterate, overweight step n’ fetch type. Never well spoken complex beings with everyday interests and outlooks.

    And NO I don’t have a single Madea type in my family. I’m sick of black people repeating this bs. Speak for yourself and the circle(s) you travel in.

    I grew up with a Madera someone who loved you right or wrong. Someone who took the time to care there was once a time the whole street you lived on had them and they looked out for everyone. Gave a meal those who was hungry. Shelter as well. Tyler is just showing how it was when we grew up . The whole family has changed and the person next door does not even know your name. So just think don’t we all miss the madera of our day. I am 37.

    Have to agree with Spike, and not to mention that the sitcoms are not the least bit funny…

  • Ummmmmm....

    Spike DOES have a point. The real issue though, really, is why haven’t we as a people DEMANDED and PRODUCED more films of substance? Why is Madea acceptable just because it’s funny?

    Unfortunately, his comment will do nothing but come across as ‘hating’ and not inspire change. He should take his comments to the up and coming black film makers who can REALLY do something about it…..

  • toonmili

    I agree with Spike. It seems like Tyler Perry is a racist and he hates black people himslef… especially black women.

  • dallastx

    Spike is only upset because Hollywood want finance his films…Even private donors want fund his events……So what does that tell you? Spike is on the side of the road…TP shouldn’t be upset because he is speeding right past him.

  • Ann

    I agree with Spike.

  • dayg715

    black people never want to see other black people be successful. when was the last time Spike Lee was relevant anyway?
