Tyler Perry pays off over $400,000 in layaway items for Walmart shoppers

Comedian and actor Tyler Perry is giving back in a big way.

Perry decided to pay off layaway items at two different Atlanta area Walmart stores, dropping over $400K to pay off outstanding balances. Perry posted a short video on his Twitter account explaining how people can pick up their items and which stores got the benefit of his holiday giving spirit.

Walmart responded by tweeting, โ€œAnonymous or not, we hope you know that you justmade Christmas for so many families. You went above and beyond. Thank you ๐Ÿ’™โ€

Perry owns a studio company that is located in Atlanta, so thatโ€™s probably why he chose the area Walmarts to give back to the community.
