Although actor Idris Elba has worked with media mogul Tyler Perry, he recently revealed that he’s not the biggest fan. While at a recent appearance at Rutgers University, he was asked for his input on the Spike Lee vs Tyler Perry debate and offered this response:

“Can I be candid? I don’t like all of Tyler Perry’s films. Yes, I did work with Tyler for “Daddy’s Little Girls” because it portrayed a positive image of a black father. I am happy for Tyler’s success…we need Tyler Perry…by going to support his movies, we need to show economic strength. But we are also responsible for elevating film. I’m not with buffoonish characters like Madea or Big Momma.”
