Tyler Perry’s Film Studio, Jail Time for Missing Jury Duty & A Salon-Storming Deer | The Daily Show


Tyler Perry, writer, director, mogul and part-time woman
who whups people’s ass. -(laughter)
-Well, now he’s taking things to a whole new level. Tyler Perry made history over the weekend with the
opening of his new film studio in Atlanta, becoming
the first African American to own a studio outright
without any other partners. The Atlanta film complex spans–
listen to this– 330 acres, with 12 soundstages. It’s larger than the Burbank,
California, lots owned by Warner Bros., Paramount and
Walt Disney Studios combined. The centerpiece of the opening
of the Tyler Perry Studios was the dedication
of 12 soundstages named after black directors,
producers, actresses who have all made contributions
to cinema, including: Cicely Tyson, Oprah… Wow! -Wow!
-(cheering, applause) Wow! That is insane. Really impressive.
But at the same time, classic patriarchy. Madea makes all the money, but Tyler Perry takes
the credit. Huh? Why aren’t those
Madea Studios? Huh, Tyler? -(laughter)
-But jokes aside, man, this is really amazing, right? Because Tyler Perry Studios
was already impressive– Black Panther, The Walking Dead
were all shot there– but now he’s expanded it
to become one of the biggest movie studios
in the country. So huge– I mean,
congratulations again. Tyler Perry, well done to you and everyone
who’s worked on this. And naming each location
for an African American icon is a great tribute. I mean, he even built
a soundstage for Oprah. Do you know
how rich you have to be to give something to Oprah? Huh? Like, she probably forgot
what that even feels like. -(laughter) -I’ll bet
she was just there like, “Wait, what is happening?
I get a studio! You get a studio!
We’re all getting studios!” -(cheering, applause) -She was
probably like, “What is this?” And I know, I know Tyler Perry
is building the studio for everyone else to use,
but if I was him, I would make it a rule that
Madea has to be in every movie that films there. Yeah. I would do that.
I would be like, “Madea even has to be
in Star Wars.” Yeah, Darth Vader would be like,
“Luke, I am your father.” Then Madea would probably be
like, “And I’m your Auntie! “That’s right.
You black, Luke. -Welcome to the big,
happy First Family.” -(laughter) I think my favorite thing
about this new studio is the White House set. I don’t know if you’ve seen it,
but it’s a replica and it’s 35,000-odd square feet. I was thinking,
we could definitely trick Trump -into living there.
-(laughter) Yeah, we just spin him around
a few times, put him in the White House
by himself. Yeah. And then he’ll see
Tyler Perry and he’ll be like, “Ben Carson, great to see you. So good.” So again,
congrats to Tyler Perry. It’s really great to see
a black person so successful. You know? Black progress.
That’s what it looks like. But let’s move on.
Because while we’re inspired by a whole new level
of black progress, this next story reminds you
there’s still a long way to go. When they say that jury duty
is mandatory, they really do mean it. Just ask the Florida man
who ended up in jail after missing his first day
serving on a trial. NEWSMAN:
Today, Deandre Somerville came to court on time. The 21-year-old apologizing
to the judge after, he says, he overslept, missing his
first day serving on a jury. Somerville,
who had never been arrested, now has a criminal record
for contempt, and spent ten days in jail
with hardened criminals. The judge today explained
the punishment that critics charge
was over the top. Okay, I’m sorry,
but this right here is the biggest load of bullshit
I have ever seen -in a long time.
-(cheering, applause) This is trash. Like, you know, you know racism
is bad in America when a black man can get thrown
in jail at someone else’s trial. That’s like some M. Night
Shyamalan-twist-ending racism. The judge is like,
“The defendant is free to go, “but we find
this black juror guilty! Take him to jail!” I mean, think about it.
Felicity Huffman committed fraud and only got 14 days
for fraud, right? This guy came late to jury duty,
and he gets ten days? And he got a year of probation. He gets community service
and a fine. -(audience groaning)
-Yeah. That punishment
does not fit the crime. That would be like, on a flight,
if, like, the flight attendant caught you unbuckling
your seat belt during takeoff, and they just kicked you
off the plane. “Get out!” What’s even worse is that reason
that the judge gave, right? The judge is like,
“No, I’m punishing you, “because you were
the only black juror, and we needed a black person’s
perspective on the jury.” In other words,
he got sent to jail because he was
the only black juror. So why not just put him
on another jury, huh? ‘Cause that’s where you say
you need the black people. You know where you don’t need
more black people? In jail, mother (bleep),
that’s where. In jail. (cheers and applause) And finally, moving on. This is a fun video
out of Long Island. Before you watch it, no animals
or humans were harmed in the making of this story,
but, uh, everyone’s minds were blown. Well, the owner of a hair salon
on Long Island– -you talk about a scare–
-Wow. this was quite the scare
after a dear crashed right through the front window. And the chaos was all caught
on camera. (woman screaming) FEMALE TV REPORTER:
I’d be screaming, too. Yes, customers began screaming and shards of glass
went flying after the deer dashed into the beautiful salon
in Lake Ronkonkoma. One woman who was waiting
on the couch was kicked by the buck
as it jumped over her. She was not seriously hurt. The deer finally galloped
out the front door with a hair straightener
tangled around its antlers. Holy shit! That is insane. That reminds me of me when I’m running behind
on a hair appointment. I also do the same thing. I just bust through the window. Yeah, ’cause if you’re late
for a haircut, you know how they treat you,
they treat you like shit. Yeah. You’ll leave the salon
with a messed up line, looking like a broke-ass LeBron. You got to get in there quickly. You got to get
in there quickly. Also, I love how the deer
crashed through the window, but then left through
the front door. It’s almost like the deer
was like, “Sorry. Sorry. “I didn’t mean to make a scene.
I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry.” But again, the good news is,
it looks like no one was hurt. And as for the straightener
the deer left with, let’s just say, uh, that the
deer put it to some good work. Yeah. Nice job, Bambi.

  1. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😟😳😤😐😧🤯🤬🤭🤣🤣🤣 how I felt watching this.

  2. A sound stage was dedicated to Ms. Diahann Carroll who unfortunately passed the day before. RIP to a true trailblazer.

  3. That setence is ridiculous. Now that guy is burdened with a criminal record, that will hinder his application for any jobs.

  4. TOTAL BULLSHIT THAT MOTHER FUCKING JUDGE NEED TO SERVE TIME BEHIND BARS FOR THAT SHIT. IF THAT JURER WAS A WHITE MAN NOTHING WOULD HAVE HAPPENED TO HIM. KARMA IS A BITCH JUDGE!!! ITS GONNA COME BACK AT YOU ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.

  5. That is a freaking ridiculous. R u kidding me this is boiling us. F..up why would he ever need to go to jail for that when freaking Felicity only get 14 days. 😔

  6. Judge: We needed ONE black guy in the jury, because we are racist. You didn’t show up, so it’s definitely your fault, also you’re going to jail because you’re black. Goodbye.
    Courtroom: yeah that’s fair.

  7. The judge rationalizing the sentence doesn't clear anything up. All it does is put a really fine point on this guy's racism.

  8. The last thing the world needs more of, besides race-bating from Trevor Noah, is shitty Tyler Perry movies for imbeciles.
    As for the egomaniac, corrupt, racist judge, it's Palm Beach "Corruption" County! Shit like this goes on all the time!

  9. Racism or not, you can't just go ahead and give this young man a criminal record for this mess. I am not a US citizen, but I assume it's an important duty. If you want, give him the community service equal to the days he missed out on and a fine as a disciplinary measure, but the jail time is just too much.

  10. if you're really upset about racism in America, just return to Africa where there are wars, famines and racism toward white people.

  11. these are all right wing racist judges implemented in the system along with cops and Moscow Mitch made sure he added more before Trumps impeachment and removal.

  12. The judge is racist … He's angry that his skin is white because blacks are the chosen true Jews and not the lying jewshits … That's wickedness though and the wrath of the Almighty God will soon be at all of them racist door…

  13. I don't think I've seen ever Trev so angry…"the biggest load of bullsh*t I have ever seen in a long time."

  14. Tyler Perry plz open a news room for African people, and you must hired this man Don, he is awesome. Plus let us now show our people in a great light guilty or not.

  15. ❤️❤️❤️ you Trevor Noah. Laughing.out.loud!!! "You know where don't need any more blacks in? In jail, m**********r!"

  16. That story abt the punishment for that black man is so fucked up it’s disgusting so I’m jus tryna focus on that mf deer😭

  17. Oh my damn😆 this why I love Trevor😍…”You know where we don’t need more black people in jail mother fucker”✅

  18. I wondered how many people in the audience or at home, take that news seriously and acted upon it, and what percentage of people forgot about it after the deer video.

  19. Good for Tyler. Juror story is some bullshit. If his crime was a felony he wouldnt have to worry about jury duty anymore…..I heard from a friend.

  20. Oh yeah, get over it black people, there's no racism. Slavery ended ages ago, time to move on. White privilege doesn't exist. We don't see colour. Every excuse in the book has been used. One year probation? Are you kidding me? This will lock so many opportunities for this young man because the system is already against him.

  21. Don't know if anybody had already commented on this thought, but I was mad at the dude for acting like a slave, "thank u massa far that glorious ass wupping, I juss forgets my place sometimes". No way I would have been on TV acting like he was so righteous in what he did to me.

  22. Why wasn’t the punishment a fine? How did it escalate to 10 days in jail, probation and an effing record!!?? This is Amerikkka.

  23. Trevor is so right! All accomplishments we do as black people! We have a justice system that goes against because we are black! This is so wrong. We have politicians who are ask to come to court. And don’t show up and not arrested. Rich white Folks who cheat the system like the college entrance scandal and gets a slap on the wrist. Why should I believe in a system that goes 10 times against us! POWER TO THE PEOPLE who against a system who is against them.

  24. 10 days im jail for being late for jury duty and being black…that is fuckin weird man..and still have more on him???…

  25. Get it, Tyler! 🙌🏽🎉🌹👏🏽🎊👌🏽🍾🎈

    Trevor- you are the best! The “Oprah” joke, “You get a studio, “I get a studio…” was amazing!🤣😜🤪

  26. Wtf 10 probation and a fine dame we do got a long way to go. And look at that judge though come on.a dame good thing that lady didn t get kicked in the skull. And he did leave though the front door though

  27. WE LOVE TYLER PERRY.
    IM FROM THE ATLANTA GA AREA. HE GIVES BACK TO HIS COMMUNITY. WE HAVE WATCHED HIM FROM THE BEGINNING WHEN HE STSRTED WITH HIS PLAYS. HE IS DO FUNNY AND SO TALENTED WITH HIS MOVIES, TV SHOWS.

  28. THIS JUDGE IS MESSING THIS YOUNG MANS LIFE UP. AT LEAST HE MADE IT.
    YOU CAN TELL HE IS YOUNG. HE LOOKED SCARED.
    SHAME ON THIS JUDGE.
    SOMEONE PLEASE HELP THIS YOUNG WOMAN.

  29. This poor kid gets this ridiculous punishment over literally nothing and yet we have an LAPD officer open fire emptying his whole clip into an unarmed family at the Corona Costco shooting in California.. He kills a mentally disabled man and shoots both his parents over a push or shove of some sort .. yet that garbage of a human being gets to walk free .. no charges .. and is somehow on paid admin leave. What a joke!

  30. Ads: United States is a colorful racially equal Country.
    One Black Guy comes late to court
    Judge: TEN DAYS IN JAIL, FINE AND CRIMINAL RECORD FOR YOU!

    I love how people complain that we always have to bring up an issue of race… yet shit your pants racism is everywhere and no one wants to acknowledge it

  31. They ALWAYS FIND A REASON TO LOCK THESE YOUNG BLACK MEN UP ! THE JUDGE SHOULD GET HIS A** LOCK UP FOR RACISM 🤬🤬. I HOPE SOME CIVIL ACTION LAWYER IS ON THIS CASE ! 🤔

  32. yet another perfect example of afro racism and hyper sensitivity. I think I know what would happen if a white guy named all his studio buildings after white actors only: 3rd world war and all blacks would shout racism, white people expected to keep their mouth shut when the reverse happens.
    For the kid, the judge’s explanation is clearly not relevant and honestly bs. But if this is the standard penalty for no show at court, than why does the daily show have to single out the black kid?! Let’s look at stats, I’m sure there are 1000 other white, latin, etc sentenced for the same as well.
    “Prisons do not need more black ppl”, sure, stop committing crime guys.

  33. A black man gets thrown into jail and fined for being late to jury duty?! Disgusting…. I’m appalled at that judge ,beyond racist

  34. Dude, that young man needs to take that to supreme count, that’s literally unfair judgment, we’re protected by that in our constitution. But I’m sure the system will just fail him again. That whole thing is so messed up

  35. This judge should just be removed from the bench!!! Am I the only one, shocked disbelief!!! I lost sleep over this A.H. judge… What a KKK-ish move! I forgot about Tyler Perry and all the rest in this video… 10 days in prison!!! for a young man with a clean record! sending him with real hardcore criminals. This judge deserves to be recalled for such abuse of his power.
    He could have ordered one month of community service between 6 and 8 am or a 1000$ fine… Come on, you don't send another blackman in jail on such grounds, unless you are used to abusing them in impunity… I can't believe the united states… This judge must simply be a psychopath enabled by the system…
    So I seached the net:
    – apparently jailing black kids for over 30 years is his trademark: https://twitter.com/nina_rari/status/1180872615583457280
    – and more dirt he laid on himself, as if after seeing this judge enjoying belittling the sleeping-juror wasn't prove of his deep sickness: see min 33:10 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_AX7fxIMCxo this judge is another level.

  36. This judge should lose his licenses to practice law and be completely Barr from any form of government and law , be sue , loss of all benefits
