Actor, director, playwright, screenwriter, producer and author Tyler Perry was furious at Turner Broadcasting about The Boondocks episode "Pause" that spoofed Perry and his Madea character. The episode ran on Cartoon Network's [adult swim] programming block. Cartoon Network and TBS (which runs Tyler Perry's House of Payne and Meet the Browns) are owned by Turner Broadcasting.
In "Pause", the episode's Ma Duke character was clearly Madea, and the Winston Jerome character was Perry. The story set him up as a closeted, cult-ish leader, who created the Ma Duke empire as a way to hide his cross-dressing lifestyle and solicit sex with men.
Per the Los Angeles Times:
Soon after the episode aired, Perry got in touch with executives at Turner including entertainment chief Steve Koonin and Phil Kent, the chief executive of Turner Broadcasting. Perry complained loudly about the episode and even threatened to rethink his relationship with the company, people familiar with the situation said. A spokesman for Perry declined to comment. Kent, who is a low-key executive but also a former talent agent, put his skills to work and acknowledged to Perry that the actor-producer should have been given a warning about the episode. The show, which has aired twice, is not scheduled to air again on Cartoon Network, although the company would not say if it has been banned from the channel.
