After weeks of fans protesting the casting of Kim Kardashian in The Marriage Counselor, director Tyler Perry defended his actions in an open letter on his website. It seems as though that Tyler Perry believes that Kim K. is a role model to millions of her followers, and casting her in his film would be the ideal way to bring them to see his movie. Below is an snippet of his explanation:
“About two months ago, long before I even heard about Kim’s marriage or divorce, I was trying to finish up the casting. I said to one of my producers, “who else is out there that young people are looking up to?” One of my producers showed me pictures that his daughter had taken of several hundred kids lined up around the corner to get into a Kardashian store. They wanted to meet Kim. I thought, what better person! She literally has millions of young people following her. I thought and still do think, that it would be very responsible of her to be a part of this film. To have the young people that look up to her, see her in a film that is about, what happens in life when you make the wrong choices.”
I don't know TP, I still say bad choice!
