Tyler Perry Casts White Actors and Says Get Over It, People!

EXCLUSIVE

Tyler Perry's color-blind ... and he's firing back at all the haters giving him crap over his new TV series.

We caught up with him Monday night at Craig's in WeHo and our photog asked him about all the criticism he's getting for his eight-part series, "Too Close to Home," on TLC.

Yes, it's a mostly white cast ... but the genius behind the 'Madea' movies thinks people need to see it differently.
