Tyler Perry heard what y’all have been saying (well, tweeting) about the "busted" wigs on his BET series, "Sistas." Now, he’s responding. Find out what he said inside…
Tyler Perry is addressing an issue fans have been vocal about on several occasions. And this isn’t the first time he has addressed this.
Whenever TP releases a new show or movie, most times the project will start trending over something that’s not directly part of the storyline. It’s usually the wiggery! Tyler Perry’s crime thriller A Fall From Grace hit Netflix last year and it instantly started trending on social media over how "bad" the wigs were.
A Fall From Grace isn’t the only project TP has been dragged for over horrible wigs. Folks STILL talk about how horrible Shemar Moore‘s "cornrows" were in Diary of a Mad Black Woman.
Well, now his new BET series, "Sistas" is catching the bad wiggery heat. During a sitdown discussion on "The Tyler Perry Show: Sistas After-Show Edition," the filmmaker dedicated a segment to reading off Twitter responses to the series. And someone wrote about how "busted" the wiggery is on the show.
Someone tweeted, "The wigs on #SistasOnBET are as busted as mine. Foolishness."
“I want all of y’all to stop talking about hair to me, please," TP responded. "I swear to you, these are the things I can do: I can run a company, I can build a house, I can go on stage. I do all of this stuff. I know what I do. I don’t know how to do hair. I don’t know nothing about it.”

The famed filmmaker said he hires people to handle the hair on his shows and in his movies because that’s not his area of expertise.
“I hire people to do hair. Pay them $65 an hour,” he said. “You heard that right. $65 an hour. They work 10 to 12 hours a day to make sure the hair is right. That’s their job, so I’m paying them to do their job and they’re doing that. They’re doing a great job. Sometimes, things slip because I move a little fast, but they get it done.”
Peep the clip above.
Should Tyler Perry consider hiring a new hair department? The Internet has collectively said what he’s been doing with the wiggery is NOT it.
