To be a friend of Meghan Markle, you need to endure mental gymnastics or be at the same calibre of woke as she is. Otherwise, they’re not worth her effort. When it comes to Tyler Perry, he’s rich and successful. Everything the former actress is not.
Anyone who has seen bits and pieces of the Netflix show Harry & Meghan will know that Tyler Perry is Meghan Markle (and Prince Harry)’s friend and is the godfather of their daughter, Lilibet. He is considered within their “inner circle” along with Oprah, Ellen and Gayle.
However, in recent months, there has been no sighting of Tyler Perry inviting Meghan or Harry to anything. When he bought the BET network, he didn’t invite the Sussexes to produce projects with him, far from it. It also appears that Oprah and Gayle have distanced themselves from them, too. However, it’s likely a ploy.
Also, Tyler hasn’t defended Meghan Markle recently, and they haven’t been seen in public together at any events. If they were super good friends, wouldn’t he, with his massive backing of the Black community, come knocking on her door?
Hollywood is very vain. It’s an “I’ll scratch your back if you scratch mine” mentality. However, a large number of the Hollywood elite have talent. Tyler Perry is mediocre. He also draws on black stereotypes, but he does have it. However, Meghan Markle does not have any talent. Her acting skills are Razzie award-worthy and she has never shown an interest in writing, producing or directing until recently.
Finally, having a foreign royal title does not mean talent. It’s not a video game where you “power up.” No, in order to have success, you need to have talent.
