    NEW YORK– Actor Clifton Powell went on a tirade about Spike Lee, admitting he didn’t like the director over his treatment of black actors, called him a punk, and said he would “whoop his a**”, while a guest on the Russ Parr Morning Show.

    He has never hired me,  I don’t really care, because I would never want to work with him. Tyler [Perry] has found his genre. The problem with being African-American in film as a producer,  you have to be so worried about stepping on toes. We have just a few outlets in terms of the dimensions we are as a people. We zero in because there are not enough dimensions of what we do.”
