Don't Mess with Madea!

10/20/2007 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A local Sacramento television station is experiencing a major backlash, after an on-air interview with Janet Jackson and co-star/director Tyler Perry -- got seriously uncomfortable.


After discussing their new film "Why Did I Get Married?" on "Good Day Sacramento," anchor (and self-proclaimed jerk) Mark S. Allen asked Janet about her infamous Super Bowl wardrobe malfunction. Tyler Perry continuously tried to turn the conversation back to the movie, but the anchor kept hounding Jackson about the 2004 incident.

Finally, Perry fumes, "What are you talking about? We're here to talk about the movie!" Allen took one last dig, asking, "Were there any wardrobe malfunctions in the movie?" Jackson remained Sphinx-like the entire time.

Fans of Jackson and Perry have flooded the station with letters and e-mail -- so much e-mail that loudmouthed anchor Mark S. Allen says he personally received 19,000 -- causing their system to "lock down."

Yesterday, the station issued a formal on-air apology and released a written one. Bottom line: Madea don't play!

Perry should have answered that jerk's question as Madea. Then he would have had a real fight on his hands!!

That jerk should have gotten a suspension!!!!

The jerk must have wanted to see her breast in person.. Janet should have impaled him with her star spoked nipple ornament. Also, it is very interresting how Justin Timberlake''s name is never mentioned in the incident. Especially, since Justine or I mean Justin was the one who ripped her bra off in the first place.

I don't think his apology was sincere. I think he's a straight up jerk and should go back to his radio job. His unprofessionalisn was way out of line. He woundn't have talked like that to any other actress. He's just a jerk always has been always wil be. He needs to get off the airways.

Logo Designer, you're an idiot. Janet has permanent A list status. She changed the world of television with one flash of boob. Not even Madonna kissing Brit and Chris could do that.
