Spike Lee Comments On Tyler Perry:Tyler Perry On 60 Minutes – Spike Lee recently blasted Tyler Perry in an interview with Ed Gordon on Our World with Black Enterprise,for making stupid black movies.Spike said:
“We’ve had this discussion back and forth. When John Singleton [made Boyz in the Hood], people came out to see it. But when he did ‘Rosewood,’ nobody showed up. So a lot of this is on us! You vote with your pocketbook, your wallet. You vote with your time sitting in front of the idiot box, and [Tyler Perry] has a huge audience. We shouldn’t think that Tyler Perry is going to make the same film that I am going to make, or that John Singleton or my cousin Malcolm Lee [would make]. As African-Americans, we’re not one monolithic group, so there is room for all of that. But at the same time, for me, the imaging is troubling and it harkens back to ‘Amos n’ Andy.’”
Perry decided to anwer during an interview with “60 Minutes”.Here is Tyler’s response to the criticism.
