Christmas is looking merrier for Walmart customers thanks to Tyler Perry. According to TMZ, the filmmaker wrote out two big checks to Atlanta-area Walmarts Thursday, covering the costs of outstanding layaway items.
The total spend came to more than $400K. Customers can pick up their goods if they go to Walmart and pay a penny, according to Perry who explained his gesture in a video shared on social media.
Perry is known for his kindness to others; this year alone, the Madea filmmaker bought an old friend’s mom a house and gave Geoffrey Owen an acting gig after finding out he was working at Trader Joe’s to make ends meet.
- In 2011, Forbes listed Perry as the highest-paid man in entertainment. He is worth around $600 million.
- Upcoming films include Vice (he plays Colin Powell) and A Madea Funeral.
