Tyler Perry shows gratitude to Atlanta restaurant workers by giving them a $21,000 tip



  • Tyler Perry proved once again that he’s an angel on Earth by leaving a $21,000 tip to all the workers at Houston’s restaurant in Atlanta on Sunday.
  • The actor-director-producer left the 42 out-of-work servers a $500 tip each to help them during the coronavirus crisis.
  • Tyler has always been a big fan of the restaurant chain and the workers who received the tip called it a “lifesaver.”

Tyler Perry has one goal — and that is to uplift his community’s spirit during these times. The coronavirus pandemic is taking a toll not just on every American’s health but also on their finances.

But Tyler Perry just proved he’s an angel. The media mogul will not let this crisis pass without helping someone in need. That’s why when he went to a Houston’s restaurant in Atlanta on Sunday, he left all the 42 workers there with a $21,000 tip.

That’s a $500 tip for each of the 42 out-of-work servers.

Tyler has always been a big fan of the restaurant chain and has been a frequent guest at the Northside Parkway to pick up some delicious stuff.

For the out-of-work employees, $500 is a big amount in these uncertain times — a “lifesaver”, especially when the coronavirus relief check for displaced workers is not yet received.

The actor-director-producer is one of the most generous people in Hollywood. When there’s a catastrophe in the US or anywhere in the world, Tyler will always be around, offering a helping hand. TMZ has reported that Tyler had a plane flown down to the Bahamas after Hurricane Dorian devastated the country in 2019.

Millions of Americans are out of work due to the shelter-in-place and lockdown orders issued by the government to contain the spread of the virus. The death toll and unemployment data are heartbreaking.

Billionnaires like Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos and Jack Dorsey have already given large amounts of money to charitable institutions for coronavirus relief.

The generous tip Tyler Perry made happened on Sunday. Come Wednesday, Kroger announced that the media mogul “took care of the grocery tab for senior and high-risk customers” at the grocery store.
