Idris Elba has a bone to pick with Tyler Perry and Martin Lawrence's cross dressing Madea and Big Momma characters. Idris attended the Lens Projects "Artist Spotlight" over the weekend, where he's calling for an end to the "coonish" portrayals.
"I don’t like all of Tyler Perry’s films. Yes, I did work with Tyler for “Daddy’s Little Girls” because it portrayed a positive image of a black father. I am happy for Tyler’s success…we need Tyler Perry…by going to support his movies, we need to show economic strength. But we are also responsible for elevating film,' Elba said addressing what has become a debate of sorts between Spike Lee and Perry. "I’m not with buffoonish characters like Madea or Big Momma."
Do you agree with Idris?
