Tyler Perry is keeping the narrative of the black community looking out for one another. Tyler Perry is paying for Rayshard Brooks’ funeral costs after he was shot and killed by police in Atlanta, Georgia. In a press conference on Monday, the family’s attorney L. Chris Stewart made the announcement.
“We do want to acknowledge and thank Tyler Perry, who we spoke with and who will be taking care of the funeral for the family,” Stewart said. “It’s support like that and it’s people who are actually in this community, that love the community, that want healing, and [want] families like this to never have to go through something like this. It’s a step forward.”
“We want to thank him for such a generous move,” he added.
