Big Ass Billboards Do Not Impress Tyler Perry

If you want Tyler Perry’s attention, you have a better chance of just showing up to an audition.

Trust it…he’ll see you. You don’t have to go renting expensive billboards to paste your face on– like one girl mistakingly did. Perry says that if you want a real shot, all you have to do is show off your acting chops the old fashioned way.

He says all of this after Racquel Bailey, an aspiring actress, tried to get his attention through a creative marketing strategy. Rather than audition like a normal person, Bailey tried to take a short cut. The actress paid a ton of money for a billboard, which called attention to Perry. She basically told him she was getting a job, whether he knew it or not.

But Perry wasn’t amused…not at all. He was quick to humble Bailey, while also managing to give her some useful advice.

On Instagram, he called the actress out on her mistake.

“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.”

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. 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. 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. And by the way, you were great in THE NIGHT OF! It was my favorite show a couple years ago. I ALREADY SAW YOU!! So just audition and keep your money!! Again, I appreciate your effort, but that’s not the way to work for me. God bless you dreamer. I have no doubt you will make it one day!!
