Tyler Perry's claim earlier in the week that he was a victim of some not-so-civil treatment by Atlanta police has led to an internal department investigation.

The comedian and producer spoke out, in light of the Trayvon Martin case, about racial profiling he allegedly suffered from two officers during a traffic stop.

Perry claimed he was questioned unreasonably because he is black, and spared further trouble only after a black officer showed up and recognized Perry.

Perry says racial profiling should be a federal offense. While that may never happen, Atlanta police are looking into his claims of misconduct in this case.

The Good Deeds director described his version of events in detail on his Facebook page on Sunday, writing that he was driving to the airport at the time.

Perry was pulled over for turning left from a right lane, a maneuver he attempted to ensure he wasn't being followed, as he was without his security detail.

According to Perry, who described the ordeal on Facebook, the officer who approached his window asked, "Why do you think someone would follow you?"

In the wake of the Trayvon Martin case an his own experiences, Tyler Perry has called for federal agents to take racial profiling seriously as a potential hate crime.

The Good Deeds director took to Facebook to discuss Martin, who was shot and killed in Florida in February by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman.

Moreover, Perry alleges he was pulled over in L.A. late one night for an illegal turn, reprimanded for having tinted windows, and realized he was in big trouble.

Tyler Perry writes on his official page:

“My mother would always say to me, ‘if you get stopped by the police, especially if they are white policemen, you say ‘yes sir’ and ‘no sir’, and if they want to take you in, you go with them. Don’t resist, you hear me?"

"Don’t make any quick moves, don’t run, just go.’ It wasn’t until after I heard her voice that I realized that both officers were white… I didn’t feel safe at all."

"At this point, I told him (the arresting officer) that I wanted to get out of the car. I wanted the passersby to see what was happening.”

However, once a black officer pulled up at the scene and recognized Perry, the officials apologized and let him go. But the incident has stayed with him.

Kim Kardashian has been cast in a Tyler Perry movie titled The Marriage Counselor. Even if she isn't playing the title role, come on, that's hilarious.

But not to the mega producer himself. He doesn't really get the humor behind this selection, even after Kim filed for divorce 72 days after wedding Kris Humphries. And even though, you know, she cannot act.

"She literally has millions of young people following her," Perry wrote on his official website. "I thought and still do think, that it would be very responsible of her to be a part of this film... If one of those young people see this film and find the strength to live a better life and not go through what these characters went through in this movie, then we have all done what I feel I'm being led to do here."

Decent point, Ty. But do those followers really need Kim to star in a movie in order to use her life story as a cautionary tale?

Asked Perry: "Because I believe that my films speak from the inside out, why wouldn't Kim Kardashian be invited into a film about Faith, Forgiveness and the healing power of God?"

We're just guessing here... but maybe because she has no soul?

South Park is really timely these days. The Comedy Central show somehow managed to ridicule the death of Osama Bin Laden days after it happened!

The main premise, derived from creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker begrudgingly attending The Comedy Awards last month, was likely written long ago.

Still, inserting Bin Laden and bringing President Obama in had to take place within the last 48 hours, a commendable, even award-winning achievement!

Token and Obama being the only people to laugh at Tyler Perry? Offensive, for sure, but pretty hilarious. As was Token just directly handing him money.

"Stop giving Tyler Perry money or he won't go away." South Park quotes at their finest, ladies and gentlemen. Watch a clip of this nonsense below ...

After watching a screening of the new movie Precious - which centers on a teenage girl struggling to overcome mental and physical abuse - comedian Tyler Perry said "a large part of my childhood had just played out before my eyes."

Perry then revealed he was sexually and physically abused as a child.

"I always thought I would die before I grew up," Perry, 40, wrote in a letter to fans on his Web site, before recounting the various abuse he suffered.

One night, he says his father "came home mad at the world. He was drunk, as he was most of the time. He got the vacuum cleaner extension cord, trapped me in a room and beat me until the skin was coming off my back."

He says a neighbor woman molested him at age 10 and that his grandmother tried to to rid him of his allergies by giving him "a bath in ammonia."

"She said she was going to kill these germs on me once and for all," Perry recalled of an incident that surely scarred him for life in multiple ways.

Tyler Perry is going public with a painful part of his past.

Watching Precious - which he produced, along with Oprah Winfrey, "hit me so hard. I sat there in tears realizing that somehow, by the grace of God, I made it through. My tears were tears of joy, being thankful that I made it."

Like Mackenzie Phillips, Tyler Perry hopes his tales of hardship will help those who suffered similar (and worse) abuses in their formative years.

Looking back, Perry says his faith has gotten him through tough times. "Forgiveness has been my weapon of choice. It has helped to free me."

"If you're having a hard time getting over something in your life, maybe you can try forgiveness too. It's not easy, but it does bring forth healing."

Talk about a painful story but also an inspiring message from a guy who's obviously overcome a lot to achieve a strong career doing what he loves.

At least the Britney Spears stalker seemed harmless enough, albeit moronic. Tyler Perry's version appears to be straight up crazy and possibly homocidal.

According to a restraining order obtained against the woman accused of stalking the unfunny comedian, Perry is apparently a prime candidate for murder.

Dawne Wilson was arrested for aggravated stalking outside Perry's production studios in Atlanta ... a place she's paid unwanted visits many times before.

The restraining order claims in March 2008, Dawne Wilson began contacting Tyler Perry by computer and making threats "in a menacing manner."

He feared "apprehension of immediately receiving a violent injury."

According to court documents, in April, 2008, Wilson sent another e-mail saying "You need to check your heart condition because it is filled with murder... your love has been but costly and deadly.... Murder I say is the verdict."

Dawne Wilson rambled on, "Why do you insist on assisting the devil?"

This crazy chick was taken into custody after showing up at Perry's recording studio last Wednesday, in blatant violation of the restraining order.

She thus enters our insane stalker and celebrity mug shot Halls of Fame.
