Tyler Perry donates $1 mn to Hurricane Harvey relief

Actor Tyler Perry has announced that he is donating $1 million to relief efforts in Texas following the destruction left by Hurricane Harvey.

The 47-year-old made the announcement on Facebook on Thursday, reports tmz.com.

Out of the total amount, Perry will donate $250,000 to pastor Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church.

“I know that there’s been some controversy about Joel Osteen and him not opening the doors of the church. Joel and Victoria are amazing people — there’s no way that they would lock people out of the church or not let people seek shelter,” Perry wrote.

“There were some safety concerns, and I spoke to them on the phone, and it all made perfect sense to me. So, before you just run and judge someone real quick, you need to know the whole circumstances,” he added.
