How Dare You Pull Over Tyler Perry, Now You Must Pay

Tyler Perry Pulled Over, Accuses White Cops of Racial Profiling
Perry's predicament began when he admittedly made a left turn from a far-right lane -- a trick his security detail taught him, to make sure he wasn't being followed, Perry explained on Facebook.

Two white Atlanta police officers pulled him over, but apparently did not realize they'd just stopped Tyler Perry.
So he should get a pass because he is Tyler Perry? Did his security detail mention that it is illegal and dangerous to make a left turn from the far-right lane?
When Perry explained his illegal turn was to make sure no one was tailing him, one officer allegedly asked, "Why do you think someone would be following you?" Perry said in his post.
That is the first question that popped into my mind when I read that.
But then a second police cruiser pulled up, and a black Atlanta policeman emerged. "He took one look at me and had that 'Oh No' look on his face," Perry recounted.

The black officer spoke "in a hushed tone" to the two white officers, Perry said. "After that, one of the officers stayed near his car while one came back, very apologetic."
Instead of immediately thinking racism, perhaps he should consider that maybe the black officer recognized him, was a fan, and asked the other officers to give him a break.
The Atlanta police department's Office of Professional Standards is looking into Tyler Perry's racial-profiling claims, E! News reports.
Of course, waste more money investigating the delusions of a paranoid star.
