Tyler Perry tells TBS "Boondocks" isn't very funny

Turner Broadcasting is in hot water with mogul/Oprah friend Tyler Perry, according to the Los Angeles Times.

It all started when satirist Aaron McGruder came hard on Perry on the Father's Day episode of "The Boondocks," the cartoon that appears on the Turner-owned Cartoon Network, during its late night Adult Swim programming.

In the episode, a character very much like Tyler Perry offers the grandfather in "The Boondocks" a chance at fame. Winston Jerome is portrayed as a closeted cross-dresser who uses religion as a cover and a weapon. He's also a really bad writer. It's sometimes hilarious, sometimes homophobic and overall,  scathing. Naturally, Perry didn't like it one bit.
