The Boondocks Outs Tyler Perry and His Light Skinned Pretty Boy Fetish

Last night’s episode of Adult Swim’s The Boondocks cartoon subliminally outed director/playwright Tyler Perry and his fetish for casting light skinned pretty boy actors in his movies and plays.

Despite the fact that Perry’s sexuality is no secret, the episode titled ‘Pause’ triggered a storm of tweets on the popular social networking website Twitter.com. The comic’s creator, Aaron McGruder, became the #1 trending topic as a result.

A study done by me shows that the majority of sistas still refuse to believe Tyler Perry is gay. It’s amazing to me how blind some black women are to the obvious sexual preferences of 68% of black men in our community.

The Boondocks follows the comical attempts of two brothers, Huey and Riley, to assimilate following a move from Chicago to the boonies.

Perry, a classic narcissist who can’t tolerate the slightest criticism, will no doubt react publicly to McGruder’s outing of him. And when he does, I will post it!

    Good morning,

    I am going to have to disagree with you on this one Sandy…(thinking) Other than Shemar Moore & Allen Payne who’s not even that light, who are all the light skin brothas? :coffee:

    I agree with FreeToSpeakUp. Terrell Carter is suspect (fine as hell) but nonetheless suspect, he is far from a light skinned pretty boy.

    :rofl: that episode last night was tooooo muuch!!!! “She got back with her dark-skinned abusive husbend because God told her so” LOL!!! Then when they tried to save their grandfather from Tyler they couldn’t hold their grip on the male cast members because they where all oiled down, Riley was talkin about “Man, these n***a’s is too greasy!!! No Homo!!! Just too much!

    I like them because even though they may be predictable (and I do agree) they are really good family movies and they always send a positive message. Can’t beat that…

    Destinee says:

    I don’t understand why people focus on people’s sexuality so much. The man makes really good movies that the family can all enjoy and have a positive Godly message. Why rag on a man that isn’t doing any harm, but instead is doing positive things in the community. Just because the man doesn’ come out and say “Hey I am gay”. You want to tear him down. That is why the black community can NEVER be united. We are always too busy sticking our noses in other peoples business. Then pointing the finger. People the live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.

    Mamacita says:

    I just feel that if you don’t like Tyler Perry and his movies, don’t watch them! I think the whole gay thing stems from him dressing up as a woman and ignorant people cant differentiate between acting and this mans personal life. Several male actors have dressed like women and they aren’t being accused of bein gay so why Tyler. Martin Lawrence? Wayans Brothers? Eddie Murphy? At the end of the day i don’t think he’s gay and personally his sexual orientation is none of my business and really shouldn’t be any of yours so I ask who cares if he is or if he isn’t? I enjoy his plays and his movies so i’ll continue to support a black person that actually puts black actors to work in roles where they don’t get killed off in the first 10 mins of the movie. Who else is doing that these days?

    VAALLDAY says:

    I agree that TP is playing for the other field…but I like his films, even though there typical. Sad part is if he did want to marry a women and later came out the closet, she will claim she didn’t know he was gay!

    Say what you want about Dave Chappelle, I think he is a brilliant and honest comedian.

    Like Chappelle, I too am troubled by the fact that approximately two to three years ago, the top-grossing movies with leading Black actors (Eddie Murphy, Tyler Perry and Martin Lawrence) required them to dress in drag. Blank stare.

    I’m salty cuz I missed last night’s episode!! I think that TP is gay and not b/c he dresses up as Madea, but because of his overall feminine ways. And that email that he sent out about Mariah put the icing on the cake for me…what man does that? But his movies do feature black actors and have positive messages and that’s cool. He just gets the side-eye from me…

    Don’t get me wrong. good, positive family movies are never a bad thing. But I just can’t get with the “Tyler Perry Experience”. I mean I’ll watch them (maybe) when they come to cable but trying to be the first in line on opening night or joining the fan club just to get first dibs on the newest, upcoming TP news… :no: just don’t understand it. I just don’t think his movies are as deep as everybody thinks they are…

    Mamacita says:

    @Nika Right! He keeps me rollin all the time and what people fail to realize is that all of his plays and movies are used to enlighten and empower people through comedy. Smart move to me. I had a friend who knew a lady that was being abused by her husband on a regular basis because he was crazy! She never really told anyone about it and after watching one his plays that focused on domestic violence she was empowered enough to get out of that situation before she got seriously hurt or killed. If his work can inspire this type of courage then he’s alright with me so again I ask who cares if he’s gay?

    I enjoy his movies w/o Madea the best but there is always room for improvement but his movies are cool with me. I am not a big moive buff anyway. He has a target audience and long as they ride with him he will continue to be a success.

    I hope he doesnt mess up the colored girls movie though :popcorn:

    @PAHairston OMG i was thinking the same thing this morning when i was listening to a new report! THe report was about a young black man who I think was maybe 15 or 16 that was arrested. A few months back on the campus of Jackson State University (jackson, MS) he robbed and shot a Teacher in a parkinglot while she was headed to her car. The parking lot was behind the bulding and at the edge of the campus. Luckily one student was walking by and called the police. He basically saved this woman’s life because rearely is anyone walking by that parking lot late at night. Thank God for that. This same young man that shot and almost killed the teacher also shot and KILLED a 16 yr old not too long before this happened. It’s sad that we have these types of things going on with black men that are so young! Something is wrong and we as a community need to try and find a solution because our children are suffering!

    Just my opinion, but I was thinking that the TP character had grandad renounce Ice Cube because Ice Cube is stepping into TP’s TBS territory. Just my opinion though.

    Anyway, I am a fan of Tyler Perry. Not a huge fan, but a fan. I don’t think it matters at all if he is gay and it should not discourage anyone from seeing his plays/movies. Now if you don’t like them that is different but hating on the man because of his sexual preference is a bit much. I mean damn, we all come on here and post and read the articles and chit chat with each other and we all know the side of the fence that Sandra is on, soooo…… :coffee:

  61. 61

    :cosign: @PAHairston. As long as I’m not sleeping with him I could care less provided I’m entertained. I’m not his biggest fan, rarely go see them in the movies BUT I usually will rent them. Anyways, I’ve got more important things going on to worry about who’s getting their behind blown and not. And I can’t get freaked out by how many dl black men there are cause then I wouldn’t never date. Ill just continue to be careful and get to know who the person is BEFORE I open my legs (which we all should do anyway) the alternative would be to abandon my beautiful black men for other races or live my life in fear and I’m not willing to do that so whatever. We spend to much time focused on the petty silly stuff and ignore what’s really going on in our communities

    Oh ok, so you think being gay is not logical….that’s your opionion just like it’s mine not to care about someone’s sexuality. I don’t think that falls under common sense, common sense IMO is knowing to pay your bills so the lights don’t get cut off etc…a persons sexuality does not fall into that. So if it’s not logical do we not have anything to do with the gays? That what you feels is logical/common sense not everyone feels the same and it all sounds like another way to say “judging” IMO. But what is so great and good about the land of the free is you can have your veiws and I can have mine.

    I keep missing the Boondocks! When does the repeat come on?

    TP is okay. I don’t like his plays (too much dayum singing for me. Call that ish a musical, not a play!). I like his movies (but I will not pay to see any).

    The messages are cool, I guess. But it’s always the same formula….woman left by a man/abused…so here is another man to help her get her life together. Like, women need a captain-save-a-ho all the time? I just wished I couldn’t predict the outcome of his movies when I watch them. And then he tried to throw a curve ball with that dumb arse ending on Why did I get married 2. It left me shaking my head saying, wtf? Did my bootleg cut off in the middle of a scene?

    You either like Tyler or you don’t. Regarding his sexual preference, that’s between him and God. As far as his movies, I likethem – some more than others. I love his positivity in the midst of all the nonsense being shown.

    While there are people that can’t get into Tyler (and there’s nothing wrong with that – to each his/her own), I don’t understand the fascination with reality shows, and how as soon as one pops up, people swarm around them. That’s what I don’t undertand, so I just don’t tune in. Again, to each his/her own.

  69. 69
    borderlineamazing says:

    Tyler is so obviously gay-it’s not about not caring it’s about the black women especially the christian population who refuse to believe it. His demographic before he made it big was christian black women and still is. He would ruin his own career if it got out that he was gay.

    I like SOME of his movies but most follow the same plotline with different actors.

    Sandra…please provide any study that references 68% of black men are down-low, bisexual or have latent homosexual tendencies. Unless you can provide proof of sources, it’s disingenuous to throw out stats in which you have no way of proving as accurate. It’s also disrespectful and erroneous to label the majority of black men as having latent homosexual tendencies. This is how misinformation and rumors are spread when people clearly don’t know what they are talking about and have a hidden agenda.

    It’s not the fact that people refuse to believe he’s gay but I don’t believe RUMORS and SPECULATION and I certainly won’t give my opinion whether he’s gay or not when I’ve NEVER MET HIM and I DON’T KNOW HIM PERSONALLY…

    SneakyBrown says:

    My family calls him Tyler Fairy becuz it’s sooo obvious. I love this episode. I love how they keep using religion to throw ppl off (especially black ppl, you can just about get away w/ anything… If you put “Jesus” in front, it’s quite hilarious from the outside looking in).

    In my OWN opinion.. I think TP & his gang sucks. I think (imo) he takes advantage of black women’s misfortune, throw on some “gospel” & makes a major profit. I’m sick of the poor abused weak black woman… who are either bitter/conving or jst plain weak. If you notice all the really pretty women in his movies are evil, and the effeminate, beautiful male is always gentle. Tyler & Oprah entertain some real SICK shI* (JMO)

    gagirl08 says:

    Mamacita said: “Several male actors have dressed like women and they aren’t being accused of bein gay so why Tyler. Martin Lawrence? Wayans Brothers? Eddie Murphy?”

    And that is apparently the reason why Dave Chappelle told Comedy Central to kiss his ass. He wasn’t wearing a dress because it wasn’t necessary to be funny. We as blacks have done a lot of bull**** to humiliate ourselves for a buck. I personally can’t stand Tyler Perry’s shows; I think they are modern-day coonery. And not that I care one way or the other but if you think he’s straight then you’ve got your head in the sand. However, I can testify that the Boondocks was some FUNNY **** last night!!!! Aaron McGruder never fails to hit the nail on the head. He has really been showing out this season. I love that show.

    One more thing–I’d loooove to know where Sandra finds these statistics. Now 2/3 of all black men are gay? Really??? LOL Getthefucouttahere.

    Jamillah says:

    I believe that Tyler Perry is gay. He has that gay vibe written all over him. As far as 68% of black men being gay, I am not too sure about that. I do believe that over 68% of black men who have been in prison have had homosexual experiences. Either way, it is surely a tragedy for single, black, heterosexual females.

    Girl, I agree. I can’t stand Tyler Perry’s movies because they are coonery and very stereotypical of the black community. It seems like every movie always has something to do with a church and black people putting on mistral shows. And also with the lightskin mixed “heffah” out to take somebody’s man and some loud mouth black woman.

    I lose respect for any black man that puts on a dress or play “sissy” roles in movies.
