Tyler Perry’s Message To Fans

Tyler took to social media early Tuesday (July 11, 2018) to address a scam on Facebook, that he says was just brought to his attention. Someone is posing as the “Madea” filmmaker and asking fans’ for personal info, in order for them to collect their portion of $1million in cars and money in a Tyler Perry give-away.

Apparently the scam was that fans were told that Tyler Perry would be giving away a total of $1M worth of gifts to many different fans, over the course of the next few weeks or months. Soon as Tyler heard that $1M’s were promised in free gifts, he was like ‘HELLLL To the naw, to the naw naw, to the naw, naw, naw!’ Then he commenced to alerting his fans with this message:

“I am not giving away anything on Facebook,” Tyler sternly stated in his video message. “I am not giving away any money. My team has to shut down these things every day. There’s a new one popping up. Do not give your information to any of these people. Do not … give them anything. I don’t know who they are, but every day we have to get 10, 20, 30 of those things shut down on Facebook. I am not giving away anything. This is Tyler Perry. I’m not giving away anything. Please do me a favor: post this everywhere, so people will know that it’s not true.”

It’s unclear how long a scammer has been trolling folks for info in Tyler’s name. However, due to the fact that being that Tyler is known for being such a generous brotha, it’s understandable how some people could have possibly mistaken the give-away as the real deal.

One person who is still cheesin’ from ear to ear over her Tyler Perry gift though, is Ms. Tiffany Haddish. In case y’all missed her emotional post, check it out below…

Tiffany Haddish Cried When Perry Surprised Her With Car

Even though Tiffany can now afford to purchase her own $80K Tesla Model X (which she’s oftentimes stated was her dream car), she claims she never had a chance to slow up from work and purchase her car. However, according to Tyler, that’s a bunch of bullcrap.

He thinks Tiff’ has yet to buy her dream car because she’s just started earning a certain type of income and is therefore, apprehensive about spending it, out of fear it may slow up soon. He said he can relate to the new lifestyle adjustment she’s trying to get used to, because he’s been there. Soooo, Tyler figured, ‘Ah, what the hell? Let me pick up that new $80,000.00 Tesla Model X for Tiff’ real quick, while I’m out.’ Okay, maybe he didn’t say it quite that way, but still…See what RICH friends will do for ya?’ Watch the video message of Tyler’s surprise and what Tiffany said about it here:
