    Spike Lee has called Tyler Perry’s TBS sitcoms “Meet the Browns” and “House of Payne,” “coonery and buffoonery.”

    Perry responded to that criticism in a Sunday interview on “60 Minutes.”

    “You know, that pisses me off,” Perry tells Byron Pitts. “It really does. Because it’s so insulting. It’s attitudes like that that make Hollywood think that these people do not exist and that’s why there’s no material speaking to them. I would love to read that to my fan base.”
