Tyler Perry Surprises Layaway Shoppers At Two Atlanta-Area Walmarts

Shortly after TMZ reported that the director and actor had written big checks to two stores in the Atlanta area, Perry confirmed the news on Twitter.

Perry said he had planned to remain anonymous, but "due to some circumstances" news of the generous act leaked, and he chose to post a video on Twitter revealing which stores' layaway tabs he paid.

The manager, who only gave her first name, Shameka, told the paper she's never seen such a generous act while employed at Walmart.

As Perry explained, he paid off the bills for all items under layaway before 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, and all people have to do is go into the Walmart location and pay a single penny. 'The heartfelt excitement and joy we're seeing from our customers as a result of his holiday gift has been touching'. All the lucky shoppers have to do is pay one penny at the time of pick-up to take their items home. "I know it's hard times".
