Tyler Perry Pens OPEN LETTER To Alleged 11-Year-Old Sandusky Victim

Tyler Perry has penned an emotional open letter to an 11-year old boy affected by the Penn State/Sandusky molestation scandal.  He tells him he isn't a victim....he's a survivor. Read it inside....

We all remember when the very brave producer/director Tyler Perry revealed years of sexual abuse to Oprah. Now he is reaching out to survivors through an open letter in NEWSWEEK about the Sandusky child abuse scandal to let them know they are not alone. Read it here:

I don’t know your name, but I know your face. I don’t know your journey, but I know where you are. I am your brother!

I must tell you, what you have done is so courageous. The strength that it must have taken for your 11-year-old voice to speak out about such a horrible act is something that I didn’t have the strength or courage to do at that age.

I was a very poor young black boy in New Orleans, just a face without a name, swimming in a sea of poverty trying to survive. Forget about living, I was just trying to exist. I was enduring a lot of the same things that you’ve come forward and said happened to you, and it was awful. I felt so powerless. I knew what was happening to me, but unlike you, I couldn’t speak about it because no one saw me. I was invisible and my voice was inaudible.

So to think that you, when you were only 11 years old, spoke up—you are my hero! I’m so proud of you. You have nothing to be ashamed of. I want you to know you didn’t do anything wrong. It’s not your fault. Please know that you were chosen by a monster. You didn’t choose him. You didn’t ask for it and, most of all, you didn’t deserve it. What a huge lesson that was for me to learn. Your 11-year-old self was no match for wicked, evil tactics of this kind. You were hunted like prey. A pedophile looks for the young boys he thinks he can manipulate. The ones who have daddy or mommy issues, the ones who are broken, and the ones who are in need. But this wasn’t you.

Do you know that at the young age of 11 you had more courage than all the adults who let you down? All of the ones who didn’t go to the proper authorities, all of the ones who were worried about their careers, reputations, or livelihoods. All of the ones who didn’t want to get involved. Or even the ones who tried to convince your mother not to fight. You are stronger than them all! I wonder what they would have done if it were their own child.

I had a few of those adults in my life, too. They knew and did nothing. One of them even said to me that it was my fault, because I allowed myself to spend time with the molesters. And yes, this was someone who was in power and could have called the police, but instead this person allowed this criminal to go on molesting other young boys for many years. When I did tell a family member, I wasn’t believed. I suffered in silence. But not you, my young strong hero, you have done what many of us wish we could have done. You used your voice!

You know, now that you’re older you need to be aware that the aftermath of abuse may affect you for a very long time. But that’s OK; just know that the strength it took for you to talk about it then will help you get through it now. I often tell myself that if I made it through that experience as a child, then surely as a man I should be able to get past it. It still may take you a while, but that’s OK too. I have known people who have gone through the same things that we have, but unfortunately they were never able to admit it, and it destroyed them. They never went for help, and they let the abuse defeat them. Some of them went to prison for crimes, some are addicted to drugs, and some have even committed suicide. I know that none of these things will happen to you. You are too strong for that!

No matter what happens next, just know that the hardest part is over. I wish the coward and very sick individual who hurt you would have the courage to admit his wrong and not put you through a trial. But he will most likely profess his innocence until the bitter end. And probably, all the while, yelling at the top of his lungs about all he has done to help troubled young boys.

You may have to go through with that trial, and you may feel all alone when you’re on that witness stand, but just know that there are millions of young boys and grown men who are standing with you—including me. If every man who has ever been molested would speak up, you would see that we’re all around you. You may not know all of our faces and names, but my prayer is that you feel our strength holding you up. You will get through this; you’ve already endured the worst part at age 11. Now fight on, my young friend, fight on! We are all with you.

 

 

This entire situation is such a sad and disgusting one...any way you cut it.  Your thoughts?

I hate to say this. I really

I hate to say this. I really do. But Tyler Perry is nothing but a VICTIMIZATION PIMP just like Oprah. I'm just getting so sick of people using situations like this to draw attention to themselves. Tyler Perry has been telling lies about himself that border on PURE FICTION to cover the fact that he is a raging homosexual. Point blank period. To hear Tyler Perry tell his "story" is to hear nothing but a dramatic yarn that has been told better from REAL victims like Antwan Fisher. Tyler tells these stories to sell movies and push his projects. What happen in the Penn State case is TRAGIC and it has tons of national attention and hopefully this will break the silence that covers other such situations and it has with the exposure of the Syracuse situation. But lets be frank... Tyler Perry was VERY close to REAL molesters like "Bishop Eddie Long" for YEARS. Eddie Long's accusers said they even met Tyler Perry through long and attended many of his Movie Premieres. Where was Tyler Perry's open letter to that situation? The only reason this open letter was written in NEWSWEEK was because this is a NATIONAL case??? And Tyler will use this publicity to draw attention to his projects and to explain away his own homosexuality. This is such a disgusting display and I hope people are smart enough to see the tactic that is being employed here. This is such a HOLLYWOOD move and has nothing to so with supporting actual victims this is all about TYLER PERRY the EXPLOITATION PIMP. I'm sure Oprah pushed him to do this. It's sickening. I would totally support this IF Tyler Perry really believed in this and SPOKE out against his PAL Bishop Eddie LONG who lives in his own STATE of ATLANTA. It's not shocking that few few if any Afrian American expressed outrage over that very public situation so excuse me if I dismiss this publicity stunt Tyler pulling here.

Maybe you lack the

Maybe you lack the intelligence to understand my comment. I at no point in my comment said that child abuse is not a scourge in this nation. I don't support the Death Penalty but I do support it 100% in the case of any person who abuses a child. Your anger in this situation is misdirected. You should direct that anger and venom towards TYLER PERRY. The scum is Tyler not me. Tyler Perry is using a serious situation to sell his products and to improve his profile to the main stream and he is doing that on the back of abused children and that to me is DISGUSTING. Karma has been great to me because my parents have provided me with an education and a thinking mind. I don't simply buy into images I'm shown like you. Tyler Perry lives in Atlanta, GA and not long ago a very public case of child molestation was open with Bishop Eddie Long. This scum bag has been abusing his male church members for YEARS and started grooming them since they were children and waiting till they were of age before he made his move! Just like Jerry Sandusky at Penn State groomed his kids but he moved on them while they were underaged. These people pick disadvantaged children because they are the easiest victims and they abuse the power they have. Now where was Tyler Perry's comments about that? It happened in his own back yard and with a man he was very close to. In fact some of the victims mentioned that they met Tyler Perry and attended his movie Premieres along with Big Long. Now you're telling me that Tyler Perry did not know what was going on? That he did not ask where the parents were and why Eddie was with so many unsupervised boys? Now Tyler writes this letter in Newsweek to address this situation and he speaks more about himself than anything else. This is an advantage to Tyler more then the victims. This is a publicity STUNT of the worst kind. Tyler Perry is a LIAR. He is not even HONEST about his own sexuality. So don't attack me for stating how I feel about this situation. I support REAL VICTIMS not people who make money off the victimization of others like Tyler Perry and Oprah. And you really don't know about actual abuse because you're wishing it on my unborn children because I don't support your way of thinking and that is the most VILE thing that anyone can do. You are the very definition of IGNORANCE!

Thanks for proving my point that you're uneducated and incapable of making any valid points. I feel sorry for you more than anything else. You can string together a cogent thought if your life depended on it. The education system has failed you.

Just unreal that you would bring up some old petty bullsh*t about his movies and whatever else in reference to this letter. Idiot.

EXACTLY! But Tyler learned

EXACTLY! But Tyler learned this STUNT from OPRAH. The only reason he is SPEAKING OUT and Writing an OPEN LETTER to is expand is viewership. This is a NATIONAL CASE. There is not a person alive who does not support the victims. Where was Tyler Perry's open letter against BISHOP EDDIE LONG? Eddie Long lives in his STATE of ATLANTA.... The reason he said nothing about that was 1. It involved African Americans. And 2. Because he's very good FRIENDS with Bishop Eddie Long. Tyler Perry is a POVERTY and VICTIMIZATION Pimp. And he uses situations like this to SELL HIS MOVIES and to take attention off his HOMOSEXUALITY. PERIOD END OF STORY.

Did it ever occur to you that

Did it ever occur to you that maybe an open letter could reach other molested boys that had nothing to do with the Penn State scandal? I think everyone should talk about struggles they have overcame openly, whether it is being molested, drug abuse, self esteem or whatever. It gives people hope and reminds them that they are not alone. It doesn't matter if it was Tyler Perry who spoke out or a no-name blogger. He did it to encourage and uplift them because he has been there. Stop being so negative!

You stupid close minded

You stupid close minded b*tch, this letter is to commend the little boy, but if you read it with an open mind and not filled with idiocracy, then you would realize that this letter is for all the kids that have not told or grown adults or anyone wh is still hiding it. If he saves 1 or 2 other people its worth. It. People like you look at the negative and ignore the positive, I can't believe that is what you got from the article. SMDH!!

What 11 year old boy is reading Gossip sites or Newsweek. If the letters were sent to the victim's home instead of Newsweek. You and I would not be commenting. Again this was done to exploit his name and products. If Tp wasn't selling anything at this moment, yes it was emotional and blah blah. But he lost his street cred and respect by his last open letter stating Kim was a role model and he kept her in his film. Karma. Where was his open letter to his booty buddy Long's victims whom he knew?

Dear God, Such a blessing

Dear God, Such a blessing thathe did this for this young child, and let me say this ANY and I mean anyone who takes something negative away from this should seek professional help because it means that you have serious emotional and mental issues and I pray that you NEVER have kids of your own. Bless you Tyler, your words may save a life today.
