As early morning production began in Virginia Highlands this morning on The Marriage Counselor,a holy war was brewing all over the Internet. Beginning on Tyler Perry’s own home page, his devout followers are crying out for Perry to fire Kim Kardashian from the role of Ava, and recast me. Okay maybe not that last part. But the fire and brimstone is out and heated.
According to TMZ, Perry has made a statement that there are no plans to recast Kardashian’s role and filming is continuing as scheduled. Perry, a devout Christian, is being attacked for keeping Kim in the movie in light of her recent sham wedding. Interesting to note in the sampling of posts below is that this outcry did not occur prior to Kardashian filing for divorce. Only now are Perry fans mentioning Kardashian’s history in the sex tape industry. They seem to be particularly disgruntled about the golden shower scenes. It is interesting as someone who has not seen the Kardashian sex tape, that these devout Christians would have such intimate knowledge of the tape. I certainly was not aware that there was a..um…water feature in the tape. Some Christian fans of Perry seem to think that Kardashian’s middle eastern heritage should keep her out of the film. On TMZ’s report the comment section is also predominately populated by the holy crusaders. We will see if Perry sticks to his guns. The posts below were posted on Tyler Perry’s Website and have not been edited for grammar, spelling or clarity.
Mr. Perry, I am a loyal watcher of your movies. But if you keep Kim Kardashian in the Marriage Counselor, I will not support that movie. Sorry, but she just made a huge mockery of marriage and by watching your movie, I would be supporting her financially. Sorry.
I honestly think that Kim Kardashian is one of the most hated people in this wold. Right up there with Casey Anthony…… PLEASE if you have any respect for all of us, do NOT put her in your movie. You will lose a lot of supporters. I can promise u that.
Mr Perry, Although I’ve supported you and your movies since the first Madea I just e-mailed Lionsgate to let them know I’ll no longer see any of theirs or your movies. It was a well thought and sad decision but one I had to make based on you giving Kim Kardashian a role in the “Marriage Counselor”. With so many actors giving blood, sweat and tears to hone their craft your decision to give the role to this person who’s only claim to fame is a p**** tape and fake b*** is truly appalling. Of course I wish you well in life as you had been an inspiration to me for many years, but I’ve accepted that you’ve been drinking the “Hollywood Koolaid” and are now “DRUNK”.
Wow! Your not going to listen to your fans? How do you think you became so successful? Your fans! Now your going to put this girl in that movie even though your fans won’t see it? Kim kardashian was born to middle eastern decent she has changed her looks to look less ethnic, nose job, face work, she was ashamed of who she was. She filmed and sold a sex tape in which she let a man urinate on her. She is a horrible role model for Americas young girls very self absorbed and spoiled rotten. She married a young man who has done very well in his young life yet she made fun of him for living in a small town and having price is right furniture etc etc. I will not be watching your movies or the e channel or anything else that she devil promotes!!
