Idris Elba Spats With Reporter [Audio]
Earlier this year, Idris Eba made some comments that many people would call “negative” about Tyler Perry that also echoed comments Spike Lee made about the director. What Idris said was,
“Can I be candid? I don’t like all of Tyler Perry’s films. Yes, I did work with Tyler for ‘Daddy’s Little Girls’ because it portrayed a positive image of a black father. I am happy for Tyler’s success…we need Tyler Perry…by going to support his movies, we need to show economic strength. But we are also responsible for elevating film. I’m not with buffoonish characters like Madea or Big Momma.”
That sounds quite clear to the average person. Unfortunately, it wasn’t so clear to one particularly annoying reporter. Listen to the audio below and share your thoughts about it.
