Today Tyler Perry, the man who made a gun-toting senior citizen by the name of Madea a household name turns 43 years old. Tyler has had to fight really hard over the years to silence his critics (
most from the Black community) because of the messages they felt he was sending through his movies, but I still believe that he is a talented man who has accomplished so much in a very short time and has opened up many doors for people of color in entertainment.
Tyler announced his birthday today by posting this photo of him as a baby.
Happy Birthday Tyler Perry
