Los Angeles — The long standing feud between directors Tyler Perry and Spike Lee is still as hot as their movies.
Perry recently fired back at Lee telling him to “go to hell” after Lee said Perry’s movies “harken to the Amon n Andy” days.
While Perry’s website message was vague and resilient, defending his work as both spiritually uplifting and fun, his words for Lee were blunt and harsh in the press conference.
“I’m so sick of hearing about damn Spike Lee,” Perry said during the press conference (via Box Office Magazine). “Spike can go straight to hell! You can print that. I am sick of him talking about me, I am sick of him saying, ‘this is a coon, this is a buffoon.’ I am sick of him talking about black people going to see movies. This is what he said: ‘you vote by what you see,’ as if black people don’t know what they want to see.”
