Tyler Perry Gifts Families By Purchasing Over 430k In Layaway Items

By @MinneeTellsItAll Contributing Writer


’Tis the season to be jolly! Tyler Perry is in the Christmas spirit and is gifting families early! The Madea actor purchases all of the items on layaway from shoppers at two Wal-Mart locations in Atlanta, Georgia. The entertainment mogul took to Twitter today (Dec. 6th) to share the exciting news for the shoppers in a short clip.

In the video Tyler Perry goes on to say:


“So I was trying to do this anonymously, but due to some circumstances… y’all know how nothing stays secret these days, so I just wanted to go ahead and tell you, If you have a layaway at the Walmart at 844 Cleveland Avenue in East Point, Georgia, in Atlanta, or if you have a layaway at the Walmart at 7001 Concourse Parkway in Douglasville, Georgia, if you have a layaway at either place and it was in there as of 9:30 this morning… I have paid for all of your layaways for Christmas. So God bless you. Go get your stuff! Merry Christmas everybody!”

He then goes on to say, You’ve got to go into the Walmart, pay a penny — one penny — and you get your layaway.” Sources state that Tyler Perry spent $178,000 at the East Point superstore and another $256,000 at the Douglasville location, totaling more than $430,000 on his holiday surprise. In addition to his generosity, he explains the inspiration behind his holiday gift.

“I know it’s hard times, everyone’s struggling and I’m just really, really grateful to be able to be in a position to do this.”
