Tyler Perry has finally spoken publicly on the recent episode of The Boondocks that skewered the director. Trade publications recently quoted insiders at Turner Broadcasting—which airs two of Perry's shows on TBS—whom said the director was "furious" and reportedly "threatened" to sever his relationship with Turner.
Perry did not comment on that but did speak on other rumors at the Essence Music Festival, reports YBF.
"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."
Of course litigation is out of the question. A lawsuit means Tyler Perry would have to sign an affidavit or give a deposition stating he was not gay. Right?
