Tyler Perry Donates $1 Million to Hurricane Harvey Relief with Portion Going to Joel Osteen's Church

Tyler Perry is making a major donation to the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

The 47-year-old actor and filmmaker announced on his Facebook on Thursday (August 31) that he will be donating $1 million to those effected by the hurricane in Texas, with $250,000 going to Joel Osteen‘s Lakewood Church.

“I know that there’s been some controversy about Joel Osteen and him not opening the doors of the church,” Tyler said in his Facebook video. “Joel and [wife] Victoria are amazing people — there’s no way that they would lock people out of the church or not let people seek shelter.”

Joel faced major criticism after it was reported that he had not opened his church to the victims of the hurricane.

The church has since been opened and is housing people displaced by the hurricane.

Tyler Perry Responds to Criticism of His TLC Series: 'That's Reverse Racism'

Tyler Perry is speaking out after facing backlash over his TLC series Too Close to Home.

People have been critical that the 47-year-old actor and director’s newest show features an all white cast while most of his other projects feature predominantly African-American actors.

“That’s totally reverse racism because it was coming from African-American people. I don’t know if it was because they thought I should only be giving jobs to black people. Well, I think that’s ridiculous,” he began.

Tyler continued, “If you look at the hundreds of black people I’ve given jobs to and even the ones I’ve made millionaires, people of color, I just think it’s unfair.”

“I’m just finding out more as I travel the country and world, the more I meet people, we’re all the same. We all got the same dramas. So I’m not seeing color as much as I did anymore in the sense of our stories. Our stories are so similar,” Tyler concluded.
