Here's Why Tyler Perry Won't Play Madea Anymore

15618 ratings | 969376 views
After 11 feature films starring his popular character Madea, Tyler Perry decided it was time to take a hiatus, and it sounds like he's finished with the wig and saggy bodysuit for good. Here's why Tyler Perry is probably done playing Madea. Madea is an enduring, endearing character who has captured fans' hearts worldwide, and no wonder. But while we were theoretically laughing, Perry was evidently dreaming up ways to get rid of the character, and he wasn't exactly keeping his plans a secret, either. In October 2018, he appeared on Bevy Smith's Bevelations and revealed that 2019's A Madea Family Funeral would be the 11th and final Madea film. But he promised there'd be one final farewell tour and a stage play rendition of the movie. Watch the video for more about why Tyler Perry won't play Madea anymore! #Madea #TylerPerry #Movies He was "tired" | 0:19 The character took a toll | 1:03 Were moviegoers sick of her? | 1:54 Did a birthday change everything? | 2:34 Critics weren't amused | 3:30 Was his health at risk? | 4:03 Will Madea be back? | 4:52

As we continue to walk away from the word of god. We see how Gods so called people take his word for granted because of grace. What does a God fearing man have any business dressing as a woman ? Most Christians couldn't tell you what bible prophecy looks like. All I'll say is blacks praise Tyler for his work but true followers rebuke him for promoting gender confusion and cross dressing which is ungodly. Masons Go into a religion and change it to match the agenda of what they want. The Mason want to see the true principal's from God given to the prophets and apostles and christ destroyed. Tyler Perry another mason posing as a Christian !

America just won't let Aunt Jemima die. Madea, is merely from a long line of fat black females stereotypes created in the Jim Crow era. The fact that a black male is now behind it is particularly insidious.

You can take the Medea out of the lime light 💡 but the lime light will stay on you because of you talented character. Yes, you are a role model for me and so many other people that needed to bring their personality out. Pimp slap 👋 Gull......😂😂😂😂😂😂😭😭😭 I love you and that old lady 👵🏻

To All Humanity I loved the way Tyler Perry handled Spike Lee. (He didn't allow himself to be devided). He invited Spike to his grand opening studio with respect for another man's craft. 💝😊😊😅😍💝 (Thank you for breaking that cursre). I love Tyler for that and I love Spike for attending. They both took the high road aware that they are a role models, for all young and old alike..(Thank you for using your platforms in a positive way) Anyone can learn from that place of mentality. IF you can't see it in your heart then ask God to remove the hate. Then you can grow and be a role model for whom ever is watching you😊 Peace

I don't care what anyone say Madea is funny, they're just hating cause they didn't come up with it. And yes any race can create grandma as long as she's funny.

I’ve observed Madea and have the opinion that she and LaWanda Page were two of a kind. I have known many great teachers, including Maw, her age. These were phenomenal women. My girlfriend is younger, but is a reminder to me that the greats come in our generation too.

Why have a dude play the role? Why not just have some warm friendly famous woman play that role? Oh I know, Hollyweird, that's why.

Please don't. We need Madea to teach the young (bullies) to stop it/there are other ways to handle them. I say call on Jesus to help you. Tell Madea one can't do it one. Do this call Him, call Him, call Him:) Amen...

Madea may seen negative to some but her character also showed that you reap any actions that you perform in life -- The character help me as an elder to guide not only my kids but neighborhood kids in fun but positive learning --- Cause not all live for the Lord but their is good in all people - with Christ love

I feel like beneath all the comedy in Madea movies, there’s some serious life lessons to be learned in them so we can apply them to our lives.

Michael Phillips (2 months ago)
I'll admit some of these listed bits of information were surprising. But than again, when it comes to what Tyler Perry does or anyone who works that hard, they're bound to become very tired and develop a health issue temporarily from the exhaustion. But a series like Madea was bound to conclude eventually. But I do love Madea, she's a tough woman whose really funny.

Most of you all do not remember Flip Wilson. He had a show back in the 70s. He played a female called Geraldine Jones ever so often. He stopped doing that cross dress of Geraldine and said she got bigger than him so he killed her.
