Widely known for his series of movies focused on the Madea character and stage plays as well as other numerous productions, Tyler Perry is a writer, actor, comedian, director and Producer.

Known to write and create his stories solely by himself, Tyler Perry recently opened the home to his film studio, Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta.

A lot of fans are really not having it that Perry writes solely and even more, many find it disturbing that a good number of his works seem to paint black people, especially black women as unhappy and angry people. Fans have made comments recently especially with the release of the trailer of his forthcoming Netflix production, “A Fall from Grace”

The forthcoming Netflix debut stars Crystal Fox as Grace Waters, a black woman going through the process of divorce over her husband’s unfaithfulness and desperately in need of love. As she would have it, love came her way in a much younger self and things were all rosy until…

The movie seems to go in the cliché Tyler Perry storyline of a black woman (or family) in turmoil and a need to stop that agony.

A lot of fans are furious as to why Perry keeps telling these stories in what they believe to paint the picture of the average black woman as sad, lonely, angry and depressed and prone to sufferings.

Personally, I love Tyler Perry movies and I enjoy them but his cliched plots can’t be denied.

So while we look forward to seeing more from Tyler Perry and to watching A Fall From Grace on Netflix come January 17, we are really hoping to see better and happier stories from the Madea star.
