Black people are arguably the world’s most discriminating and merciless people when it comes to critiquing hair and wigs, especially bad ones.
Evidence of that first came to this reporter when former teen gymnast Gabby Douglas was busy breaking barriers and making history during the 2012 Olympics, yet the only thing most Twitter users could seem to focus on was the few strands of her hair that were out of place.
The criticism came early and in waves.

People have been talking about Mehcad Brook's hair in the latest Tyler Perry movie and here is what Tyler said. "It could have all been fake even for the character" We also talk about Bad Boys for Life and Coming To America 2 being filmed on his property. https://youtu.be/QGVD4o9XFIw
Despite what some Tyler Perry fans see as a glaring flaw, @justdoodirty2 may have summarized the sentiments of the filmmaker’s hardcore supporters with this post on Twitter: “Y’all better leave #TylerPerry alone…if we have to deal with 12th Grade Movies so that we can have 330 Acres of our own sound stage.. and POC having jobs & getting opportunity.. then let this man give us sketchy a– films.. D— it.. go ahead #TylerPerry #TheView”
Still, most social media users were highly critical of the wigs in Tyler Perry’s A Fall From Grace. Check out a sampling of the responses.
