Popular Hollywood producer and actor, Tyler Perry has reacted angrily to aspiring actors erecting billboards to get his attention for a movie audition, as he calls out one Racquel Bailey who is an aspiring actor and was alleged to have paid a total sum of $2,000 to erect a billboard in Atlanta asking for an audition from the producer.
In the billboard advert which she placed, she included her website domain and twitter handle, while hoping to get the attention of the actor. But did she get the attention at the end of the day? lol
Tyler Perry who frowned at the move, calls Racquel Bailey and others looking to get a spot at his audition to stop paying money to erect a billboard or other things to get his attention, as audition his free. He said this will be the third time such a thing will be happening, and it must stop.
In replying to her and not directly though, Tyler Perry took to his social media page to post a message to those interested in his audition saying:
“Auhhh…. soooooo…… here’s the deal. This is not the way to get my attention if you’re looking for a role in one of my shows. Please DON’T DO THIS, SAVE YOUR MONEY!! This is the third time that someone has done this. PLEASE STOP! To audition is FREE!! I’m sure you can use that money for a better purpose.”
He added, “I love that you want to work with me, and I love that you invest in yourself. But when you do things like this it puts my team on high alert and makes me look at you sideways. I know the message that you want to send is a positive one, but this comes across as the opposite.”
Tyler Perry gave more advice for aspiring actors, “Again, the best way to work for me is to AUDITION and it’s FREE! We post breakdowns all the time for actors. JUST COME AND AUDITION.”
He ended his note by saying:
“God bless you dreamer. I have no doubt you will make it one day!!”
