Tyler Perry’s Powerful Oscars Speech Asks the World to ‘Refuse Hate’
Viola Davis introduced Perry with glowing remarks. "Tyler Perry personifies empathy," she said. "Tyler knows what it is to be hungry, to be without a home, to feel unsafe and uncertain. So when he buys groceries for 1,000 of his neighbors, supports a women's shelter, or quietly pays tuition for a hard-working student, Tyler is coming from a place of shared experience."
Perry dedicated his acceptance speech to "anyone who wants to stand in the middle -- no matter what's around the walls."

Thank you so much for showing me myself." He also found some time to embarrass family members: "My mum, my dad, they had sex. It's amazing!"
