Skip to comments.Tyler Perry Pulled Over, Says Racial Profiling
Posted on 04/06/2012 7:18:52 AM PDT by And2TheRepublic
Tyler Perry's April 1 Facebook post about police pulling him over was no April Fool's joke: The highest-paid man in entertainment is accusing a pair of white Atlanta police officers of racial profiling. Four days later, Perry's post boasts more than 117,000 "likes," 21,000 comments, and 12,000 shares. Atlanta police have launched an internal investigation, E! News reports. Perry's predicament began when he admittedly made a left turn from a far-right lane -- a trick his security detail taught him, to make sure he wasn't being followed, Perry explained on Facebook. Two white Atlanta police officers pulled him over, but apparently did not realize they'd just stopped Tyler Perry.

Yeah... but I don't think THE MAN is a white guy anymore.
(altered for your viewing pleasure)
I doubt this change of attitude by the police had a thing to do with race.
And Tyler Perry's massive ego simply would not be able to handle that type of effrontery.
Not that “profiling” was deployed in this case, but why is everyone running away from it.
In that young black males commit a hideously disproportionate percentage of crimes, particularly violent crimes, racial profiling targeting that demographic is the most sane and efficient law enforcement measure imaginable.
Then too, who or what is Journey?
The only way this story could have gone differently is if:
INTERIOR, POLICE CRUISER
White Officer 1 — “That Mercedes with the heavily tinted windows and 21” rims that just turned across two lanes of traffic ... probably a rich, black celebrity executing a security maneuver to avoid being tailed ... we should just let that slide ... “
White Officer 2 — “Good thinking, Bob.”
Although I might suggest you quit the heavy drinking this early in the day, I understood your question. : )
I meant that Tyler made a movie about himself.
However, I like your idea. Better yet, we combine Michelle Obama and Tyler Perry, for the role of the MAD WOMAN.
Look, the Atlanta cops response to “I’m Tyler Perry” SHOULD have been, “I don’t give a FLYING F*** who you are to America, right now you are just another Perp to me.”
Aww Tyler... thought you were better than to whine about racism after violating traffic laws.
He violated the rules of the road.
He got caught.
Rich, gay and black, and all he could come up with was some LAME A** EXCUSE about learning it from 'security guards'.
The cops come back and tell him, "YOU CAN JUST GO".
So, the (term of endearment in the gay community) gets on TWITTER, hours later, and raises a fuss because he was 'dissed'?
Maybe he was having a hard time controlling his emotions.
If you are going to drive like this, perhaps you should consider a large donation to the POLICEMAN'S FUND.
No, he's the guitar player for Aerosmith. You're thinking of some other guy...
“Did his security detail teach this trick to all black people?”
I can’t answer that, but it makes me wonder if this guy is teaching Asians how to drive...
Actually, he was pulled over for being an inconsiderate idiot. The fact he was rich, gay, and black had nothing to do with it.
He was let go, for at least one of those reasons (listed in order of probability).
Fortunately, the only thing damaged in this illegal maneuver was his ego. This story is about him venting his emotion, like a whiny manic-depressive on her period, using TWITTER.
Oh. My. God. That looks like Prince after a 3-day Twinkie binge...
Did his security detail teach this trick to all black people?
I cant answer that, but it makes me wonder if this guy is teaching Asians how to drive...
Gosh Marion Barry, is that you?
BTW, if Perry was Asian and pulled over, he would not complain of the race card, as Asians are the model minority. Quiet, law abiding, hard working, contribute to society.
Nope, just some guy in Northern California who has witnessed numerous instances of bad driving by Asians. :)
And all the people in my neighboring state.
If your eyelids covered half your eye, you wouldn't be that good a driver either.
All the black racists come out of the closet at times like this.
It was promised as police abuse became more and more documented on cameras via the net and more and more obvious to citizens, the black racists would move in to protect each other from real violations and crimes in the name of crooked police officers.
The black racists will reshape police unprofessionalism and abuse to their liking - whitey’s inately racist skin is the problem. All they gots to do is get rid of whitey.
I like his movie Why did we get married. Hilarious table scene. He is kind of cute.
This dude is gay as the ace of spades and angry the police didn’t instantly recognize him
