Well, well, well it appears that right on the heels of starting up his new production company, Tyler Perry is now being accused of unfair labor practices by a few of his writers. According to Variety, The Writer's Guild alleges that Perry fired four writers on "House of Payne" and "Meet the Browns" earlier this week in retaliation for their efforts to negotiate a WGAW contract for scribes on the show.
Perry responded to the charges via his attorney that the writers, Kellie Griffin, Christopher Moore, Teri Brown-Jackson and Lamont Ferrell, were fired "because of the quality of their work." WGAW said the four writers and other supporters would mount a picket line outside Saturday's opening night event for the Tyler Perry Studios facility in Atlanta.

Wow, this is totally interesting news as I have spent time in the writers room with each of these writers. Can I just say that a lot of things that have happened to me this year are like totally making sense right now...
