ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Tyler has cancelled the remainder of his Madea Gets A Job tour. Perry is angry that fake Facebook profiles are featuring people pretending to be him. In a news statement moments ago, Tyler Perry told fans he was sorry.
“This was the last live Madea tour and I’m super sorry that you won’t get to see it live” Perry told news Monday. “We’ve had to cancel this leg of the Madea Gets A Job tour”.
Perry tells news that the real culprits were online bootleggers, fake Facebook profiles claiming to be him. Perry said “you are being led to a bootlegger and you don’t even know it.”
Perry told news, in a Facebook post moments ago, that false Facebook profiles were striking his fans and his tour. “Also, there are some horrible people who are pretending to be me or representing me on Facebook and charging people money to do a meet and greet on the tour (I posted a picture below of what they are doing).” The fake profiles were looting fans, Perry told news. “They are telling people that they are me or working for me and charging them $150 for a meet and greet after the play.”
Perry said the attack by the bootleggers was evil and frustrating. “This is so frustrating! Why are people so evil? Why can’t people just get legitimate jobs and stop trying to do the wrong thing all the time?” He added “If they put the same amount of energy into doing the right thing as they do in doing the wrong thing they could make it. It’s so sad.”
