Tyler Perry Rips Media for Bobbi Kristina Coverage: 'This Child Is Still Not Allowed Any Peace'
Bobbi Kristina Brown is in hospice and there have been constant rumors about her impending death swirling amongst some media outlets. Tyler Perry wrote a Facebook account asking the media to "please some show decency and respect" for Bobbi and her family.
He said he woke up with Brown's mother, Whitney Houston, on his mind.
"I couldn't help but think about all that she must have dreamed for her child," said Perry. "I know this was not her dream." He said that this difficult time is made "more egregious" by the "blatant disrespect, lies, and ignorance that are rapidly printed in this awful time."
"For some reason, it has become human nature in our society to look for, seek out, and celebrate darkness, glory in tragedy, and enjoy reading and reporting it," he continued, saying people find it appropriate to "speak death onto those who are still alive."
"May I ask you all to please show some decency and respect? Not only to Krissi's family, but also to the other families that are there in this place," Perry said, alluding to Brown's hospice center in Atlanta.
"It's heartbreaking to think that even in a time like this, this child is still not allowed any peace," said Perry, before clarifying that if the circumstances change, the Brown and Houston family will issue a statement.
