Tyler Perry Responds to Criticism Over Madea Character

June 2, 2008

Tyler Perry is scheduled to appear on CBS 60 minutes this Sunday 10/25/2009 to respond to all the criticism people have in regard to his role as Madea.

Let me just say, I would be the first to admit if I saw something wrong with Madea from a racist or unrighteous stereotypical perspective, but in all honesty I don't see where people find her character to be any of that as a fact.

Unlike white people posing in blackface which represents real coonery and bafoonery as Spike Lee may have put it, Madea is the truth and brings a mixture of outspoken personality, inspiration and pure comedy.
