Tyler Perry Calls for the End of Violent Protests in Wake of George Floyd's Death

Tyler Perry is weighing in on the Black Lives Matter protests following the death of George Floyd.

The 50-year-old filmmaker took to his social media accounts to call for an end of the violent protests that are currently going on around the country, saying he stands with Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms for calling for an end to the violence.

“I’m not in Atlanta, but if I were I would have been standing with our Mayor! But there was nothing I could say better than what Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said last night! Please, please stop this violence!! Looting is NOT THE ANSWER!!!!” Tyler wrote.

“And listen to me, be careful where you are getting your information to JOIN protests!!” Tyler continued. “There are people and other countries who are posting things pretending to be US, pretending to stand for peaceful protest, but they are trying to incite us into violence and chaos to try and do more harm!! Do not fall for this foolishness!!! Please stop the violence!”

If you missed it, Jimmy Kimmel gave an emotional monologue about George Floyd and the rioting in Minneapolis.
