Tyler Perry’s Controversial ‘For Colored Girls’ Trailer


According To DeadLine Hollywood:

“Now I’ve learned that even Tyler’s close pal Oprah Winfrey did not want him to make the film version of the iconic 1975 play by Ntozake Shange. And that her reaction echoed the outrage of many black females along the lines of, “How dare you!” because the storyline is profoundly their story, not any man’s, and especially not his. The play is a collection of 20 poems, dealing with love, abandonment, rape, abortion, and more, told by seven different women who are identified only by color. Perry’s version has given names to the women, and is described as a poetic exploration of what is to be of color and a female in this world.”
