Tyler Perry angered his faithful fans by donating $250,000 to embattled prosperity preacher Joel Osteen, who caught heat for not opening the doors of his megachurch to Harvey flood victims sooner.
The producer-director posted a video to his Facebook page Thursday defending Pastor Osteen and announcing his plans to donate $1 million to those impacted by floods in Houston.
Part of that donation — $250,000 — will go directly to Osteen’s Lakewood Church.
Many social media users were outraged over the sizable donation to a preacher who was publicly shamed into helping Houston residents.
Many accused Perry of attention-seeking behavior and inserting himself into the heated debate over self-serving evangelists.
