Tyler Perry reveals that he writes all his storylines

American writer and producer Tyler Perry has revealed that he writes all the storylines to his movies and television shows, leading to outrage on social media.

The movie mogul revealed on social media that he was responsible for 100% of the writing for all of his TV and movie projects.

In a video he posted on Instagram, Tyler briefly discussed his work ethic and how he prefers to pen his own scripts.

“So, I don’t know if you know this but all shows on television have a writer’s room. Most of the time, there are ten people or 12 or whatever that write on these television shows.

“Well, I have no writer’s room. Nobody writes any of my work. I write it all. Why am I telling you this? I wrote all of these scripts by myself in 2019. Work ethic!”

Though his video was meant to inspire people, it ended up generating mixed reaction on social media, with many people claiming that he can’t possibly tell the stories on his own and without a team of writers.

He was also slammed for creating content that is “redundant” and always showing black women in a bad light.

Others defended Tyler, telling all those who were criticising him to start their own company and hire people.

Soon a fierce debate erupted, with even Pearl Thusi weighing in.
