On Twitter, the "Madea" creator went under fire as critics debated on his movie styles. One tweep extensively wrote on how Perry's movie project came off as misogynistic.

From [Tyler Perry's] collaboration with ViacomCBS, the star actor makes $150 million a year.


A second person called Perry one of his "nemeses" while mentioning that the "Diary of a Mad Black Woman" star thrived on ridiculing Black women and upholding homophobic views.

A third Twitter user sent out his congratulations while adding that Perry's works were mediocre and stereotypical. Another person shared the same sentiment as they mentioned the plot that had Black women playing villains.

Earlier in the week, Forbes made it known that the 50-year-old movie star joined the likes of Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg as a media billionaire.


For years, the award-winning star was able to beat the odds in Hollywood with his relentless trait and the knack to "challenge the system." Last year, Perry added a 330-acre capacity studio to his long list of assets.

From his collaboration with ViacomCBS, the star actor makes $150 million a year. He owns a franchise of over 1,200 TV episodes and 22 feature films.


While Perry created a bubble for his movie project's cast and crew, he recorded four COVID-19 cases. However, proper measures were kept in place to protect the remaining workers on set.

The "A Fall From Grace" creator made it known that no actors were affected while the positive COVID-19 cases were some crew members and movie extras.

Presently, Perry has been able to successfully film his BET series, "The Oval, Ruthless," and "Sisters."

It is safe to say that the newly named billionaire has an inspiring story behind his success. Perry was born into poverty and raised by an abusive father.

Before getting his big break, the multi-hyphenate star lived in his car. He once mentioned that he was able to stay strong because of mentorship from strong Black women.
