I Can't Stand These Kinds of People

People who do this are some of the lowest in my book.

There are some scams going around the Internet asking people to pay money to have an audition for me. THAT IS NOT TRUE. You never have to pay for an audition. I, nor any professional company, will make you pay for an audition. DON'T GET SCAMMED.

Also, I DO NOT HAVE A SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM. Do not let anyone tell you that I have a scholarship program that you have to pay to be a part of, ok? That's NOT TRUE! I have put a lot of kids through college but it's not something you can request or pay me for. They have been gifts, so don't let these folks trick you.

Do not give anyone any money in my name. This is all a SCAM. I HOPE THESE PEOPLE GET CAUGHT.

    RU attempting to relay the message that God grace does not come at a financial cost.. and that blessings can not be bought? It is yet those types of people that steal your glory, or do we give it to them.. Seeking the positive and embracing it.. Getting back to the concept of scholarships for kids... I have an amazing proposal.. "Snowed in an losing it... "..

    Did you know that during your run of “Tyler Perry's H*** Hath No Fury Like a Woman Scorned” in Memphis, TN, Evergreen Theatre is featuring a play written by local playwrights and comprised of a local cast with an abundance of talent? We would love for you and/or members of your team to witness this production while visiting our city. Just knowing that you and/or your team will be in town during this production, I have committed to posting this not only EVERYDAY but MULTIPLE times throughout the day (Post #6). This MAY be a little optimistic and it MAY NOT reach you/your team, but I honestly would not be able to rest knowing that I didn’t at least TRY. You often speak on not giving up, and this is one of my true testaments to your advice. Thank you for all that you do!

    I see posting all the time about audition for Tyler Perry's next film. Here's the thing the majority of the people who respond to those notices. DON'T KNOW THIS BUSINESS!!!! They are not trained to know what to look for as far as casting scams. Your right. NEVER PAY TO AUDITION! An audition is a free opportunity to be seen by legitimate casting directors. RESEARCH...do a background check on the person posting the casting. Most people won't because they used "your name - Tyler Perry" so they assume its someone who works for you. Know who the casting directors in the area are. Majority of the casting directors, especially in the Atlanta market, post on popular casting sites and some have their own websites as well for you to join, for free and some for a small monthly or annual fee and become apart of their database for them to pull talent from... I've been working in this industry since I was 5 years old and to see these days, the desperation in peoples faces and you can hear it in their voice to be in the entertainment industry as an actor, model or vocalist by any means, but they won't learn the business side. They don't comprehend that there are certain protocols that are in place and once you learn them and understand what those protocols are. You won't get played by these scammers. You want to be an actor, model and vocalist. LEARN THE BUSINESS SIDE!!!! Hone your talent...by investing in legitimate coaches who are still currently working the industry and are up to current techniques and process to be on a film/television set, photo shoot or musical production/concert. LEARN THE BUSINESS!!!! LEARN THE BUSINESS!!!!!

    Dear Mr. Perry, Thanks for addressing the Laugh and Flow scam. Unfortunately I did purchase a shirt thinking that this would get me a head start. All my life I have always wanted to be an actor. I just pray to God that he will open up a door for me. I know that it will only by his Grace and Mercy!! Again thanks for the vital information.
