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.
