Tyler Perry Bashed for Casting White Actors for His New Show

Date:

Tyler Perry gets bashed by fans after casting predominately white actors for his new TLC show, Too Close to Home.

When it was announced that Tyler Perry was working on a new show for TLC, everyone was excited. Fans took to Twitter excited to see what kind of drama Tyler Perry is going to bring to the predominately reality TV network. Well, that excitement seems to have died down, as Mr. Perry is in the middle of a race controversy and many fans are turning their back on the actor, writer, producer, and director.

Users took to Twitter bashing Tyler Perry calling out his new show Too Close To Home for white washing the show’s cast.

Despite, the negative feedback from several people inside the Black community, Tyler Perry doesn’t seem to care.

“I’m so sick of folks asking me why I have a show full of white folks,” Perry told Tom Joyner. “A reporter asked me this. I’m thinking what the hell? Stop asking me that damn question. People are people!”

Too Close To Home filmed in Atlanta, Georgia several months ago and centers around a small town girl who ends up in a romantic political scandal.

“It’s such a great show. It’s only eight episodes but it’s really, really a good show,” Perry said. “Listen, if Donald Trump can pitch to black people in an all-white neighborhood, why can’t you watch my show. What the hell have you got to lose? It’s gonna be huge!”
