Merry Christmas to the layaway users of two Walmarts in the Atlanta area! You have been blessed by the Christmas gods, honey! AKA: blessed by little-known movie mogul Tyler Perry. TMZ says that Tyler Perry became Santa Perry because he went out and bought gifts for all the poor people of the world… which in this economy is all of us.
Medea tweeted where he announced that he had gone out and paid for all of the layaways at two Walmarts in Atlanta, Georgia. He told his followers that if they had anything on layaway at those stores before 9:30am on December 6th then their purchase was graciously paid for. They would only need to show up, pay a penny, and they would have a delicious Christmas this year. Tyler also said that he wanted to remain anonymous, but TMZ outed him. Uh huh…

TMZ has been told that Tyler spend $178,000 at one store and $256,000 at another.
I am so into this because rich people giving back is usually a concept only heard about in Robin Hood, but I have to say: if you went there on December 6th at 10:00am I feel so bad for you. Like, so bad for you. You missed all the way out. Everyone after 9:30, your Christmases will still suck, sorry.
It’s been a giving year for Tyler who also bought a home for the mom of a woman who he’s worked with for years, and he also gave Geoffrey Owens a job this year after people found out he was back to regular people work.
Saint Tyler is really out here trying to win our hearts, but I think he’s going to have to clear out a few more Walmart layaways to get us to forgive him for Tyler Perry’s Boo! 2 A Madea Halloween.
