Tyler Perry Faces Controversy Over Kardashian Casting
Kim Kardashian left LA today for Atlanta, and flew straight into another raging controversy.
Kardashian has been hired to act in Tyler Perry's latest movie, The Marriage Counselor. Perry is well-known for his family friendly, PG-rated movies, and he's catching a lot of flack for casting Kardashian in the film.
"Do the right thing Mr. Perry. Pull her from your movie right away," wrote one woman on the Tyler Perry message board.
"The Kardashian's [sic] are bad role models for our youth today," wrote another fan.
Though Kardashian was cast before the announcement of her divorce, Perry says he is sticking with his choice, saying, "She is scheduled to work as planned."
Meanwhile, Kardashian's mother Kris Jenner was on Ryan Seacrest's radio show this morning. Seacrest asked what she thought of the very funny Satuday Night Live skit about the impending divorce.
"You can't take yourself too seriously, and you have to have a really good sense of humor. I thought the girl who played me got it spot on. It actually brought a little levity to the situation. I actually was very flattered they did that," said Jenner.
