Ten Most Irreverent (Funny?) Tweets About the Fire at Tyler Perry Studios

So, if you’re a frequent visitor to my blog you already know I am NOT a Tyler Perry hater, but plenty of folks are, as evidenced by the sheer volume (and spitefulness) of tweets regarding the 4-alarm fire that caused a building to collapse at Perry’s Atlanta studio.

I refer to the tweets as irreverent because it was not yet known if anyone had been killed or injured. Fortunately, no one was hurt in the blaze, and Perry is likely quite well-insured, so everyone can feel free to laugh at his misfortune. Besides, the man made all his money writing comedy. He knows a good punchline, so he’d probably laugh at some of these himself.

But you know there’s always someone who crosses the line, and we won’t spend too much time or attention on those tweets, but here’s one example :
