Tyler Perry Talks About Having a Controversial Christian Character on “The Haves and the Have Nots”

Tyler Perry is no stranger to controversy, but the filmmaker went the extra mile for one of his most controversial creations on a recent interview.

Speaking with the cast of his hit show, “The Haves and the Have Nots,” Perry asked Crystal Fox how she felt about playing a character viewers love to hate.

“You are one of the most controversial characters I have ever written,” Perry told Fox. “Because she’s Christian. And lots of people, man. They are giving you, ‘What kind of Christian does not talk to their daughter? What kind of Christian does not tell her daughter where her son his?’”

Since viewers got their first look at Hanna Young, they have formed their own opinion of Hanna. The character has been called everything from a hypocrite to a strong Christian woman.

Despite the criticism, Fox says the comments weren’t enough to steer away from the role. “I think when you’re a real human being, if you show people the reality of people, it’s a wonderful privilege and a wonderful gift to be able to do that. So I think Hanna is a real strong Christian. She’s human, though, and we make mistakes.”
