I'm Still In The Fight!

One day I’m going to write a book and tell you about all the crap that goes on behind the scenes in my life. Good God almighty, you won't believe some of the things I have to deal with. You would think that by now I wouldn’t have to fight to release a movie... but I do. Everything is a fight. I mean everything. By the time the movie comes out I’m so exhausted from the fight that it’s hard to unwind and take it all in.

Hear me good when I say this to you, I never take for granted that you are going to come out and see my films. Never. I know that you have a lot of choices and a lot of other things you can do with your time and money, so all I can tell you is that I’m so glad that you do and that you have been with me from the beginning. This means the world to me. It really does. That is where I get my rewards, knowing that you are with me. I want you to know that I, and everybody that works at TPS and their families, appreciate it so much.

With that said, MADEA’S WITNESS PROTECTION opens Friday, June 29th. That’s tomorrow. Just to let you know where this idea came from... I was sitting at dinner with a friend and I said to them, “the punishment for Bernie Madoff should have been that he had to move in with Madea." Isn’t the thought of that funny? Light bulbs went off in my head, so I wrote THE FUNNIEST Madea movie I’ve ever written. You’ll see! This movie is hilarious. It’s nonstop laughter. I sure hope you have plans to go out and take your family, friends, social and church groups to see MADEA’S WITNESS PROTECTION this weekend. The first weekend is so important. That’s how you’re judged in Hollywood. And that is how you can help me fight, by showing up at the movie theater this weekend.

I sure hope you still have my back… I need your help to win this fight.

I’ll be on Facebook, Twitter and tylerperry.com’s message board reading your comments.

Talk soon,

    I love all of your projects. As long as you keep God first you will have the victory in all your battles because GOD HAS FIXED YOUR FIGHT. It might appear that you are losing but you will win every battle!! So stay in the fight the only way you can lose is to give up.

    Tyler Perry, from your plays to your movies I have seen them all. You are very very gifted and anointed to do what you doing and when your gifted the way you are, there will always be a fight to achieve and accomplish that you have. Your plays were very helpful to my aunt who was dying of liver cancer, and one thing that she would ask me for is, can you please buy me a tyler perry play. So I would go out and buy them as they came out and wow she would just laugh and laugh and for that moment she would feel better. Again God has given you something special that touches a lot of people from all walks of life, and you may not be ministering to people from a pulpit, but your pulpit is a camera and man I thank you and praying for you and the further success of everything you put your hands to...

    Hi Tyler, may our God who created everything give you unmerited & unmeasured favor. Keep seeking Him & only Him for all your needs. I declare & I decree that No Weapon formed against you shall prosper. I plead the blood of Jesus over your finances, your home (s), your family & everything you own or touch. It is in Jesus' name I pray, and it is so Amen!

      Hi Tyler , The Lord gave you a wonderful talent. Do not let anyone or anything stand in your way. I will be praying for you. That is the devil that is trying to get you down. May God bless you today and always. I GOT YOUR BACK!!!

    I know that you probably get a lot of emails and calls from so many people asking for help. My family and I have hit some hard times and are about to lose our home. It is taking a lot for me to ask this, but is there any way you could possibly help us. My husband and I have always helped our friends and family out when we could. Now we need help and unfortunately nobody can right now. We took my sister and her 3 kids in too a few months ago when her husband left her so that has made it so much harder financially. My husband was laid off the year before for six months and we had even gone on government assistance and we were finally blessed with him getting a job. But he just got laid off again and was applying for a job but found out during the physical he has high blood pressure. So he had to see the doctor. We have no medical insurance . But again God blessed him with a new job and he is on his medication. But it will take us a while to catch up. Please help us. I can provide you with the exact amount we need to catch up our mortgage. I can get you the mortgage company name and account info if you want to send it directly to them so you know that is what the money is for. I would be eternally grateful. I know the amount is 3,200-3,300 range. I know it's a lot but you would be saving my family. Just let me know if you need more info. And as I said you can send it directly to mortgage company if you feel more secure about it. I'm just so stressed and I have felt suicidal but have told myself I need to keep going. God will see us through this. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for any help you can provide. I hope that you will be the angel He has sent to help my family. Please do it for my kids if not for me. I know I shouldn't beg but I'm so stressed and scared. Please forgive me for asking such a question. Im not asking for a handout just a hand up. I'm just trying to find someone with a big enough heart to help us in our time of need. I have no problem providing proof if needed.

    Tyler, I just read on facebook your posting about how much trouble you are having, fighting for the release of your movies....I'm sorry to hear that it is so difficult for you to get your movies released....but, you need to remember...that you are glorifying the Lord from these movies that you write/direct/etc. The devil hates it, and he is going to do whatever he can to keep it from getting out. You are doing such a great work for the Lord, you don't even realize the impact that it is having. I love your movies. I have purchased every one that you have made with the exception of "Good Deed" (haven't been able to get it yet) and this new one coming out tomorrow. But don't worry...I will be purchasing them. You hang in there Brother. God has it in control. Remember...that we don't wressle with flesh and blood but the principalities of this world. God Wins!! I will keep you in prayer. Please keep up the good work. Love ya Brother.

    Hi Tyler, I am a Big Fan of yours. I love every play and movie you have ever done! I will take a friend or a group of friends to see Madea's Witness Protection next weekend. I have to have my chemo on Friday, June 29th, but as soon as I feel good enough I will be taking a friend to see the movie. If I cannot get any one to go with me then I will have to do something I have never done before go to the movies by myself. Laughter is great medicine for the mind, body, & soul. Love You Tyler Perry, May God Continue to Bless You Richly Everyday for Blessing His People with your God Given Talents! Hallelujah & Praise Jesus for Blessing Us with Tyler Perry!

    Aw that's something that they don't understand. When you keep our Father in every thing that you do. No Weapons Formed Against You Shall Prosper. Again the devil is and will continue to be a liar. I pray that our Father continue to use your heart, mind, soul and hands as an instrument. Take care and God Bless.

    Mr. Perry, You seem like a remarkable person with talents(personified) that most of us will never have. You will continue to succeed, you have no choice it's in your blood. I hate that you have to fight to get every movie out there, but I am also glad you don't give up the fight. I will always enjoy your films t.v. shows etc. I will always have your back until they drag me to my death bed.... Thank you for your entertainment! Shane O. Schultz
