…that he loves StraightFromTheA.com [blushing]… and that The Boondocks “PAUSE” episode didn’t faze him one bit!
I sat down with Tyler Perry briefly during this weekend’s Essence Music Festival and he spilled the beans to me about what’s really going on with all the rumored drama about how the racy adult cartoon portrayed him.
As you can see in the video, Tyler didn’t want to address the situation on camera, but he made no qualms about how he felt about the episode and the many rumors surrounding it.
That epic episode spawned several stories about Tyler firing his entire staff in order to “control any leaks of information.” There were also stories about Tyler filing a lawsuit against the show and it’s founder Aaron McGruder.
I asked Tyler how he felt about that Boondocks episode and while he didn’t want to go into detail on the subject, Tyler specifically addressed the two stories that are running the blog world right now:
Just like the Spike Lee situation, I feel that “no response” is the best response. I’m just gonna leave it at that…
But I will tell you this… there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I’m suing The Boondocks. Those are all lies. I’m not suing anybody over that.
And I haven’t fired anyone because of that show either. I don’t know where all that came from.
Tyler seems to have more of a sense of humor than y’all give him credit for… and Me? I’m just happy I got some TP love… especially after reading this quote from Tyler’s ‘people’ when asked about the situation:
Just don’t believe anything you read on the blogs. But we’re always happy to speak with legitimate journalists who are interested in doing actual reporting. (source)
