Fresh off his BET and BET + success, Tyler Perry is back with a new film for Netflix, Fall From Grace.
The film, which debuts on January 17 and was filmed at Tyler Perry Studios, stars Crystal Fox as Grace Waters, a woman who finds love with a handsome stranger (Mehcad Brooks) after her ex-husband’s affair. However, things aren’t quite what they seem and the only person who can help Grace put her life back together is a rookie public defender (Bresha Webb).
Take a look:
Now, just in case you may have missed it, the wigs on Brooks and Perry’s heads are quite perplexing. Like…were they even necessary to tell this story? That, and why does he keep doing this?
I mean, Sir? Explain yourself.
Since the trailer dropped on Friday, Black Twitter got #TylerPerry trending, not only asking questions about these wigs but also wanting to know why the media mogul is so obsessed with films about Black women suffering at the hands of evil men.
Here’s what they had to say:

I didn’t think Tyler Perry could do any worse than that braided wig that he put on Shemar Moore...then he put a 4c Bart Simpson wig on Mehcad Brooks 😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/TbpODhvhjz— Blanche NeverHo (@Black_Daria1) January 3, 2020
1) where did they get these niggas wigs from— cori (@cortiahna) January 3, 2020

This new Tyler Perry Netflix movie looks like it’s going to be good but I can already see I will be annoyed by all the man wigs in the movie lmao why Tyler why lmao— Lil Rel Howery (@LilRel4) January 3, 2020
Wait a minute. Tyler Perry really took the exact same plot line from his play Hell Hath No Fury Like a Woman Scorned and turned it into this Netflix movie. And gave Mehcad Brooks a terrible wig along the way. WHAT IS HAPPENING.— Evette Dionne (@freeblackgirl) January 3, 2020
Why do Tyler perry think Black men need wigs 😭😭😭😭😭 https://t.co/lGbCYxtVUE— Tripp Darling (@GiGi__Says) January 3, 2020

Lol, why Tyler Perry? The same old plots. Why does the black woman need to be suffering over some man all the time? Let’s not forget about these bad wigs lmao https://t.co/qyZruF6j2g— Diandra 💖 (@violetdi_) January 3, 2020
Tyler Perry and these fucking wigs, he gotta be trolling at this point— Hot Ebony (@MissAmarisRose) January 3, 2020
Tyler Perry built an entire White House replica but still hasn’t evolved beyond beauty supply & drama department wigs for his productions.— hoochie daddy. (@PrinceyPls) January 3, 2020
Maybe he really is straight after all.
Tyler Perry making all this money and keeping the same $13 budget on wigs is a case study. https://t.co/W1LGGLH0rD— Angela Rockford (@angie_goodwood) January 3, 2020
Anyway, I'm definitely watching that new Tyler Perry movie. Looks nice and I definitely want to see Mehcad Brookes in a fugly wig. pic.twitter.com/If9113NHuC— Thango Ntwasa (@ThangoSays) January 3, 2020
Tyler Perry spent all that money on that studio, but can’t afford decent man wigs for his actors. For shame 🤦🏾♂️— Parker B (@TheAdvokate) January 3, 2020
My mom sent me the trailer for a new Tyler Perry film....the wigs. the.wigs. pic.twitter.com/g0majckus7— Jen (@jeneverettart) January 3, 2020
We must start a petition to bar Tyler Perry from putting fine black men in unnecessary lacefront wigs. https://t.co/wSnErecEB8— J.J. McCorvey (@jjmccorvey) January 3, 2020
Black men y'all need to protest Tyler Perry and them wigs he keep putting y'all brothers in. pic.twitter.com/oacF6sDPKU— Soul #504 (@EarthaKlit) January 3, 2020
Did Netflix not give Tyler Perry a wig budget? Or were they like, "Here's your wig budget," and he was like, "Thanks, but nah. I got a box of wigs out back."— Allie Parker has a Podcast 👩🏽💻🥃 (@allieiswriting) January 3, 2020
Is that what happened?
I truly hate this for us. I’m absolutely convinced that Tyler Perry hates black women. Why we gotta suffer and snap in all his movies. And let’s not get into the wigs. 😤— Lavaughn’s Lil Sis (@shananiganz117) January 3, 2020
What the fuck is that thing sitting on top of Mehcad's head? He's finally been hit by the bad wig monster from Tyler Perry, huh? Jeez.— lost one. (@angieschuylers) January 3, 2020
If there isn't a scene of Mehcad Brooks maniacally removing that lace front high top wig I am going to be so disappointed.— Derek (@i_m_kered) January 3, 2020
Tyler Perry refuses to produce a show that doesnt involve the emotional abuse, torture, and beating of the downtrodden black women https://t.co/RzFKCLhP1I— Brown Skin Girl With Skin Like Pearls (@AnimeOtaku1723) January 3, 2020
Why doesn’t Tyler Perry want to see black women happy, prospering and thriving pic.twitter.com/3AGtSxlLOE— rosechocglam (@rosechocglam) January 3, 2020
