In Tyler Perrys latest film A Madea Christmas the outspoken matriarch finally meets her match when she travels down to Alabama and meets her nieces redneck in laws who constantly get her name wrong … even calling her Mandela.
The joke was written before the civil rights leaders passing earlier this month, but Perry told HipHollywood during the films junket that he doesn’t think audiences will be offended.
“Absolutely no disrespect to Madiba”, said Tyler. “It’s just so perfect the way that it fit in there … she called her everything … so when that happened we thought it was hilarious.”
And believe it or not A Madea Christmas just may be Perry’s funniest film to date with Tika Sumpter, Anna Maria Horsford, Kathy Najimy and Larry the Cable Guy. Check out the rest of our interviews with the cast below.
