Everyone knows that Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey are BFFs, and that in addition to being close friends, they’re also business partners. What you might not know is that Tyler Perry is generous with his friends, even those who have everything, and sometimes sends them beautiful bouquets of flowers.
So on Wednesday, Tyler Perry was feeling pretty down in the dumps after he learned that the flowers he sent Oprah Winfrey for her birthday actually caused her to injure her back.
“I FEEL SO BAD,” the mega producer -director wrote on his Facebook page.
“I like to send really large flower arrangements to people for whatever occasion,” he explained. “Well, I sent one to Oprah yesterday for her birthday. She strained her back picking it up. No joke!”
Perry then sent his best wishes to Oprah for a speedy recovery.
“Feel better Oprah,” he continued. “Happy birthday. Sorry.”
We’re sure Tyler Perry meant well, but he should remember that sometimes less is more. You don’t need to send a friend a 50lb bouquet of assorted flowers to prove to them that you care. Maybe next time Tyler Perry can settle for a lighter gift for the 59 year old Winfrey. It just makes sense.
What do you think? Were Perry’s flowers over the top?
