Tyler Perry fans are urging him to hire Black writers after he revealed on Twitter that he doesn’t utilize the common industry practice of writers’ rooms, instead, he writes all of his scripts on his own. We want to know your thoughts should Perry hire more Black writers? This is what he wrote online.

“So, I don’t know if you know this, but all shows on television have a writer’s room,” Perry said in a post shared on Instagram and Twitter-showing a stack of scripts. “And, most of the time, there are 10 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!”

WORK ETHIC!! Come on. Let's go get 2020!!!

Many Tyler Perry fans have been critical of his approach, noting that instead of bragging about his often lackluster and stereotypical narratives, he should flex his power by hiring Black writers who will add fresh perspectives to his characters.
