Tyler Perry makes movies marketed to predominantly religious black audiences, so imagine their surprise when he basically cast a porn star who just took a massive shit on the institute of marriage in his latest film. Via The Huffington Post:
The filmmaker’s fans have taken to the site saying they will boycott his new movie “The Marriage Counselor” if he follows through with his plans to cast the reality star. Commenters say Kardashian is the antithesis of Perry’s Christian and respectable image for a range of reasons, including her impending divorce from husband Kris Humphries after only 72 days of marriage and her exploitation of black males.
Here are what some fans had to say:
“Mr. Perry as much as we the middle class black folks love u!!! I have made my mind up on your next movie. Me and my wife and children will NOT be supporting you on this one. You are way to classy to have this un-talented lady name Kim Kardashian in your film, She only uses our black brothers for money,sex!!!!! What kind of role model is she and again sir WHY??? All the black actresses out there needing owrk and you choose this negitive person how sad. And what a slap in our face as black people. But I guess cause you have your MILLIONS now you don’t care how we thepeople feel after we are the ones who helped you make these millions. WOW…do the RIGHT thing pull her from the movie PLEASE Mr.Perry”
Tyler Perry has already responded to fans and told them Kim Kardashian is staying in the movie as planned, and he meant it because she started filming just this morning. Which is also interesting because she’s barely been on set an hour and is already making sure everyone knows her divorce is definitely going through. TMZ reports:
Kim Kardashian is not reconciling with Kris Humphries, and the divorce is full steam ahead … this according to sources with first-hand knowledge of the situation.
We’re told even though Kim is somewhat conflicted, she knows divorce is the right thing to do, and the purpose of the trip to Minnesota last weekend was to create face-to-face closure.
KRIS: How’s the set, honey?
KIM: Ohmygod, tons of black guys.
KRIS: I’ll call TMZ.
KIM: Could you?
(How that happened.)
