– Tyler Perry Funds Groceries Bills Of Elderly People At Dozens Of Stores
American superstar actor and producer, Tyler Perry shows random act of kindness to “elderly people” and “higher-risk Kroger shoppers” in his hometown as he paid for groceries bills at dozens of stores.
The man who was listed him as the highest-paid man in entertainment, earning US$130 million between May 2010 and May 2011 by Forbes paid the grocery bills for all shoppers during the designated “senior hour” at multiple Kroger supermarket stores in Louisiana and Georgia while requesting to be kept anonymous.
Felix Turner, the Atlanta spokesman for Kroger, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Perry paid for groceries at 44 stores in Atlanta and 29 in his hometown of New Orleans.
“Senior and higher-risk Kroger shoppers in metro Atlanta did receive a nice surprise at the register this morning when they learned Tyler Perry had paid their grocery tab in full,” Turner told the newspaper. “We would like to join our customers in thanking Mr. Perry for his kindness and generosity during this unprecedented pandemic.”.
With US eclipsing Italy as the nation with the highest numbers of confirmed cases of Coronavirus, Tyler Perry decided to help in his own unique way. The shoppers were also handed slips of paper with the words “Random Act of Kindness” as they entered the store and were later told at check-out their groceries were paid for. Perry asked not to be named and said he should only be known as “Atlanta Angel”.
