Tyler Perry May Be Mad About “The Boondocks” Gaystravaganza Episode But He Is NOT Suing The Creator Aaron McGruder

- By Bossip Staff

Tyler Perry is certainly pissed about “The Boondocks” episode that aired mocking his cross dressing million dollar lifestyle but rumors suggesting that he is filing a lawsuit against “The Boondocks” creator Aaron McGruder are false.

Contrary to erroneous reports Tyler Perry is not suing Aaron McGruder over the highly publicized “Boondocks” episode that lampooned Perry’s famous Madea character, blasted Perry’s leadership style and seriously questioned his sexuality.

But Perry, whose popular pistol-packing, profane Madea character has helped rake in tens of millions at the box office over the past decade, is definitely ablaze with anger for the derisive and embarrassing depictions of him on the popular cartoon series.

Perry, according to this writer’s inside source, knows the identity of the person who crafted the script that McGruder aired last Sunday titled, “Pause.” The person, whose name was not available at press time, is a former staff member at Tyler Perry Studios who was fired some time ago and re-emerged on the other side of Turner, working with McGruder. Whether this episode was a vindictive, vengeful act for being terminated by Perry is not yet known. Remember, though: part of “Boondocks” appeal is the fact that McGruder routinely charbroils popular personalities for one reason or another.

Furthermore, Perry feels betrayed by Turner Network. Both Perry’s and McGruders’s shows are on the same network, yet Turner failed to alert Perry that the controversial “Boondock” episode was going to air until the day of.

    It was probably one that he fired a couple of years ago because he didn’t want to use Union writers or allow them to join and still be employed. Karma.

  • No u can't be boyfriend #2!

    Why is he getting mad for!? I mean correct me if I am wrong here… Tyler does dress up like a lady on the daily and promotes his audiences to laugh at some of the material he uses…right!?! Well this would be another method of laughter…but at him!!

    *Funny stuff by the way!*


    O, Snap. They blindsided ol’ boy? Didn’t see it coming, huh?

    That episode seemed like it was pretty mean-spirited. But I can’t lie, I’m still laughing my a.s.s. off at John Witherspoon being oiled up for that audition. Damn, they went in hard. LOL.

  • House of Perry

    He better start paying better wages or somebody gonna write a book!

  • Yun Dun Know

    He probably wont sue.

    Instead, he asked him out on a date.

  • Here to Share Knowledge, Not argue with you

    Ummmm….does it really matter? Tyler will go on and continue to make millions every year while Mcgruder’s “show” is in it’s last season…..sooooooo….who came out the better man here? Negros know they need to stop trying to clown each other…..I personally did not like that episode because of the way they portrayed Jesus…Tyler Perry will get over his feelings and move on but he did not have to go there on Jesus…..that is what makes McGruder less successful and not funny at all….he goes in the wrong direction….

  • Pantherbaby

    Hmmmm. Tyler filing a lawsuit would only trigger more thoughts about his life its best to let it go.

  • HF

    Um, that’s because Emmit doesn’t HAVE a real case against McGruder. The Boondocks SATIRIZED an Emmit-TYPE media mogul. They didn’t call Emmit out specifically by name.

  • bx2dadeath

    Same network, Perry’s shows are on TBS and The Boondocks is on Adult Swim.

    Who really cares?????????

    Bruh-man is ROLLING in the dead presidents and all yaw fools can do is ride him like a motorcycle. People with class and valuable time NEVER lend or waste their time putting out rumor fires. In the scheme of things, it just doesn’t really matter anyway.

  • House of Perry

    I forgot about Allen Payne – he looks too tired to put any effort into acting on the series. That’s cause he know his real acting skills are off stage where the real
    is filmed. Lance, come on out, brother – you’re trying too hard and it’s a fail.

  • tg

    He’s the one drawing attention to it. Before all the hype over it – I had NO interest in seeing it. Now I want to see it.

  • chileplz

    This “piece” is clearly from Tyler’s camp

    Tyler you need better people

  • that damn sh#$ disturber

    that’s why i question whether all these people are all gay, unless they are screaming queens. are people a.ss.uming he’s gay because of madea or because of these “lies” his former employee is supposedly spreading???

  • the kid

    what about the dark skin always being mean (bald head guy from law & order) and the light skins always saving the day (shamar moore type guy)

  • .??.

    so if he is saying that he thinks his ex-employee made this script some of it must be true, because the employee knew his secrets.
    plus, i think everyone is blowing this out of proportion. IT IS COMEDY!!! he is too soft!

  • Kia

    I guess he’s a little touchy because most of the story line is true. I do think he sexually harasses the male characters that he put in his films. Unfortunately there are many devils like Tyler Perry that uses god name in order to earn a persons trust, and then commits their acts of sin upon them. To him its more of a power issue, he is rich therefore he feels that he can do whatever he likes.

  • Die Haters

    I am friends with someone who works in PR for Tyler Perry. She said that there is a storm brewing and Tyler is doing all he can to keep it from getting open. He is literally paying hush money and filing gag orders to keep it under wraps.

    Recently, the leak of the stolen credit card story was done simply to discredit the people who were coming out against him. My friend showed me how they purposely witheld info on that. First he had first names of some and last names of others, which means that he had both. He put this out to warn these people into being quiet.

    Tyler is so worried about this gay thing coming out because he knows his base is christians. But I resally think that he does not need to worry because the way his supporters curse people out and judge them, they are not serious about being christian either. So he’ll be fine when it comes out. In fact, I think he’ll get more supporters.

    My friend also said that they are writing a response to the Boondocks episode. It will be sent from Tyler in the next week or so. It will contain the line from Tyler himself They talked about Jesus, they will talk about me”

    @ TP fans or so Sensitive

    It’s not that you are a hater. You like apples and I like bananas. But you are a hater when you attack the character of a person when you know nothing about someone that you have never met. You can critique his work because that is what was presented to you, but the attack on someone’s character is hate. At least that is my opinion. Tyler probably knows by now that this all comes with the territory.

  • darealwifey

    Tyler learned a very valuable lesson…no matter how much money he makes for the powers that be, they are NOT going to protect a black man. Turner Network probably laughed at the episode behind his back. It’s unfortunate that black people are cannibalizing one another so publicly. We are following the Master Plan to a “T.”
