It's the sound bite that very few people noticed as an agitated Tyler Perry spoke with reporters on the red carpet of the 2011 NAACP Image Awards. Our friends at No More Down Low TV caught up with the media mogul to gauge his reaction to black America's fascination with black men in drag on screen and the subsequent criticism aimed at his gun-toting character Mabel 'Madea' Simmons.

"Why are black people complaining about what other comedians are doing?", said Perry. "It's a comedic moment...people need to just chill...let that shit go!", he added.

A very different tone than we're used to hearing from the devoutly religious 40-something bachelor who was accompanied by a "guest" to the awards ceremony.

Tyler Perry's latest film Madea's Big Happy Family hits theaters on April 22 and judging from the trailer it's more of the same recycled mess we're used to seeing from Perry. But we should all run out and see it because he's the only person hiring black actors, right? I agree with No More Down Low TV host Janora McDuffie when she says despite the criticism Perry will be laughing all the way to the bank. And let me add at the expense of black and gay people.

I wish he would admit that REAL reason why he likes dressing up as Madea.
Be that as it may I refuse to support him in anything else. I think it is sick how the community runs behind him like the pied piper. And all he is selling is the same tired, cliche, and contrite B.S. that we would be protesting if white people were directing and producing.

I feel the Madea character is funny, down right hilarious. Yes, his movies are entertaining. As long as Perry continue to make movies that are entertaining, I say continue the Madea saga. You people are so hung up on image. A movie about str8t acting homosexuals will not change people view of homosexuality. You talk about Perry but want more of Noah's Arc. A show about four effeminate men. I dont understand and I never will. What a joke.

What needs to be acknowledged is that his success as a filmmaker has not created one single new opportunity for any other Black filmmaker. It has only given us more of his stuff.

Has anyone noticed his body language with the women in the picture. It does not speak of "I'm into this woman" His body language says more like..."She is eye candy for the camera. I got millions so I can get a pretty woman escort." How you doin?
