Tyler Perry’s alter ego Madea mimics Iyanla Vanzant’s distinct pressured speech interview style in this audio clip promoting Tyler’s upcoming movie A Madea Christmas, which opens in theaters on Dec. 13.
Tyler writes on his Facebook page:
Warning: Do not play this if you are driving, pregnant, have asthma, operating heavy machinery, at work, on a plane or eating!
This is FUNNY!!!
If you don’t know this show you won’t get it. But those of you who do, don’t hurt yourself.
Iyanla responded to Tyler’s hilarious portrayal of her.
@tylerperry You know U and Ms Madea is just so wrong! You know I'm gonna git you right? UhHuh! I'm gonna fix you both right good and proper
