Expanding into animated films.

Critics of Tyler Perry:
His Movies Negatively
Portray Blacks

People Magazine 2016

'One of Perry’s critics is fellow director Spike Lee, who previously called out Perry’s television shows, claiming that they have set black America
back in progress.

Perry later responded to
Lee’s words, telling the director to “shut the hell up.”'


The Brand Keeping
Oprah In Business

'He’s gotten extremely rich producing movies, TV shows, and stage plays featuring predominantly black casts and Christian themes that are
about as subtle as trumpet fanfare.'
 


No, Tyler Perry, People Don’t Dislike Your Work Because Your Characters
Are Fat
 ( Demetria Lucas D’Oyley )

"Perry is always talking about doing slapstick to loosen up the audience
and send them a message...

So send one that’s actually helpful instead of adding a cheap plot twist that demonizes gay men... 

(His) films never display nuance or subtlety or even any real buildup...

At their core, the criticisms are about his lack of skill as a storyteller."

(Perry) has excelled financially and socially while peddling stereotypes and producing mediocre work. He has cultivated a core audience of people who do not demand that
he raise the bar."

 

Tyler Perry among top 100 most powerful in Hollywood.
His films now have grossed over $650 million in global box office sales.
His character "Madea" has a voice that resonates with viewers.
