Tyler Perry is either loved or loathed, but few black directors elicit as much debate as Perry. Always ready with his pen, it seems like the actor/director is never at a loss for film ideas, much to the chagrin or delight of the masses.

One guy (or gal), dubbed the “Xpo Terrorist,” isn’t happy about Perry’s success. S/he took their frustrations out on a billboard in Los Angeles for Perry’s upcoming film, Good Deeds, scrawling: “Stop letting him make movies.”

While I may not be a fan of Perry’s work, limiting his ability to make films isn’t the answer either.

But what do you think? Have you ever taken your frustrations out on an advertisement?
