WTF is wrong with Tyler Perry?!

I'm sure many of you have heard that Tyler Perry is casting Kim K in his new movie, "The Marriage Counselor". Well, he's receiving a lot of backlash from fans, and I don't blame them!


Here's his defense: http://news.yahoo.com/tyler-perry-defends-casting-kardashian-film-164233321.html


Honestly, when will the madness end? lol I'm tired of seeing the whole Kardashian family, and after this girl just chewed up marriage and spit it out, why in the hell would he cast her in his film? There are plenty of young actresses who work their asses off in Hollywood and this chick lands a role so he can promote to a "younger" audience. Really Tyler? Look through the Hollywood celebrity phone book..there are plenty of real actresses out there. I've seen all of his movies and plays, but this one I will be skipping (or at least watching it on bootleg). I will not be putting money in his or Kim K's pockets!


How do you feel about her role in his upcoming movie?

I'm a lil disappointed in Kim with her 72 day wedding but why is everyone so concerned that she's in this film? If she was still married would be people still so upset? Just sayin...

I'm mad because his films are always about values and he always casts a range of talent - from up-and-comers to legends. Even if the girl was married, I would still be mad because she has no talent! There are plenty of actresses who work day in and day out to perfect their craft. Kim K releases a sex tape (that wasn't even that great, btw lol) and boom..she's famous. I think it's ridiculous. And for him to buy into that stuff, when his whole career has been based on uplifting people who work hard, is irritating.

I will be one of those that will support TP. From what  I have read she is in a club scene. Not really a main character. All his movies are all about values and you never know what this one will be b4 u see. For all you know it might be a great blessing to see it. Your judging the movie based on who he picked. Ppl still worried about this girl needs to get over it.

@JessMark28: Very true lol


@BK: I heard she was the counselor's assistant who is trying to save her marriage too. In the play, the counselor had a white assistant, so I'm guessing that's one reason to pick her. I don't support anything Kim K is in, so yeah, I'm judging it based on who he picked. I've supported TP from the get go, but I can't pay money to see a movie with her in it. I can't do it - especially if he casted her to appeal to a younger audience. I'm sure there are many actresses who don't release sex tapes and make a mockery of marriage, but can appeal to the target audience. I'm not worried about her; I'm just disappointed that TP would cast someone who is completely opposite of what he promotes.

I am usually in favor of his cast choices. he typically chooses taleted actors, but in this case, he is scraping the bottom of the barrel.

Do you know the background of any of his actors? It just so happens that KIM K is in the public eye. It kills me that ppl are quick to judge because of what they see but not what they dont see. Everyone has a past some in the eye and some behind it. Who are we to judge because of others misfortunes. I personally will still support TP and know this movie will be great like the rest of them. As for ms KIM K i pray because shes in this movie that when she watches it she gets the messgae that is in this movies.

@BK: Nope, I don't know. I agree that everyone has a past - but not everyone is manipulative and money-hungry. I'm not judging her misfortunes; she released her own sex tape. That is not a misfortune. Watch the tape, she says it's going to be released. Now, if she had learned something from that mistake, then sure, I'll chop it up as in the past. But she didn't. She used that tape for her own gain. She's not a victim of misfortune.


That's good you still support TP and I'm sure the movie will be good, but I'm not supporting it due to his cast choice for this movie. I'll still support his other ventures - like his new show with Tasha Smith. I love her as an actress.

Do you know her past. Now what if she did porn. ANd yes I have watched the sex tape. I def didnt see her say its coming out son. I saw rj making it seem as if he was putting it out and she didnt know but then again theres more than 1 version of the sex tape. The point is for all u know u can be supporting ppl that are devil worshippers or child abusers You just dont know. BUt hey IMO

My point is: I don't like Kim K. I don't support her. I think she's an untalented fame-junkie who manipulates the media for her own gain. I do not and will not support anything she is in, or any brand that has her face on it. I think there are plenty of actresses who are more worthy of working with TP and I'm disappointed that he chose to cast her just to appeal to "younger" audiences. If the people he casts are devil worshippers or child abusers, then I'll really re-evaluate TP's choices. Since none of those reports have surfaced, I'm looking at this based on the fact that I don't support Kim K. Now when another TP movie comes out that has talented actors/actresses, I will definitely spend the money to support him. But as for this one - if Kim K is in it, I'm not paying money to see it. And that's my opinion.


We can definitely agree to disagree on this one. I understand your opinion, and I respect it, but nothing in my wallet will ever go to anything that supports Kim K.

I don't understand what the big deal is. Did she manipulate the media into thinking she was entering into a real marriage - yes, Did she make money from it - yes, Do I think it was wrong and that she is a bad person - yes, but she's not evil she's selfish and materialistic.
She hasn't done anyone real harm (yes I'm sure Kris Humphries has a bruised ego but there is NO way he didn't have an idea what was going on).
I don't like her, I won't go to see the movie because I don't like that type of movie, not because she made a stupid decision. She's being made into some evil villain and Is getting exactly what she wants - attention and column inches!

I don't think she is evil lol..I don't support her and I don't understand why he casted her in his movie. And I'm not seeing the movie because I don't support her. I've never been a fan of Kim K - even before her scam of a marriage. I haven't liked her since the sex tape came out lol. So this isn't a new thing for me.

It makes me sick, because for every little bit of publicity that they get (good or bad) they're getting richer. I don't mind people being wealthy, but they seem like the types where they wipe their asses with $100 bills and couldn't care less. 


We all have a past, but most of us learn from those mistakes. We don't try and get rich off of those things. It's just sick, sad, pathetic- there aren't enough adjectives. I'll be excited for the day that we don't have to hear about their family again.

Honestly, I am not a Tyler Perry fan at all. I think his films are pretty bad to be honest but I do respect him.  So honestly, whether he would cast Kim K in his film or not would not make me interested in seeing his films because I just think the quality is not high enough (writing, characters, production value, etc.)

@ridegirl1: Very true. I try not to give too much attention to them, but this is just beyond me. I'll be celebrating with you! lol


@jocemae: I feel you..his movies have gone down a lot. Honestly, I like his plays a lot better - they're more natural. The message and the humor are conveyed a lot better through his plays. I've seen one live, and it was awesome! His movies started out great, but the last movie (Big Happy Family) was his worst. It was over the top. So I definitely know what you mean!

I'm with you BKPINKBRID, people are so quick to judge others..no one has rrom to throw stones....I don't care for Kim K but i don't judge her I will let my heavenly father do that. She will get what is due her just like everyone else that do wrong. YES i will still support TP in everything that he do. There maybe a reason he choose her, maybe it is, that it doesn't matter your past God can still use you to reach someone....

I'm with Jocemae. I don't care for his films, and I've heard a lot of bad things said about his style anyway. I don't care for Kim, so I just won't be seeing it. Problem solved!


I don't think she's that bad of a person- but anyone that doesn't see anything wrong with essentially selling yourself for a dollar just baffles me. I don't like her because she's useless and hasn't contributed to society in general. I don't look up to that kind of thing; especially as a woman, I admire the kind of celebrities that are not only beautiful, but intelligent and work hard. I'll take the no-name, not that pretty woman that contributed a life's work and make discoveries in science and engineering to the female on a tv show.

The only movie I liked from TP was Diary...that's about it. So I wont be seeing this movie even if Kim K wasn't in it.


 


I hate Kim K btw and her stupid family.  I do like Khole and Lamar though.

@MrsC2B: I understand that, and like I said, I'm not judging. If she wants to make a sex tape and sell her name as brand, more power to her. But when a celebrity sells herself and her image, that's what happens. People react. I could understand if he wanted to use her to teach her something, but in his released letter, he said he casted her to reach younger audiences. So he's using her to make money. That's what my problem is. There are plenty of good actresses who have actual talent, and for him to go to the bottom of the totem pole just baffles me.


@carolinaweddings: His first movies were so much better than the garbage he puts out now. His last film was a bunch of yelling and over-the-top actions..I was really disappointed. I was looking forward to this film because I saw the play live, but he changed the story so much and casted Kim K, there's no point in seeing it now.


@LaraD2mRdr: That was my favorite. He's had a few good ones since then, but like I mentioned earlier, his plays are way better. I'm with you - Khloe and Lamar are way more down to earth than the rest of that family!
