Small Bite: After making an illegal turn, @TylerPerry was pulled over in what he calls an incident of racial profiling. #Hel-eerrrrr!

Full Platter:

The Atlanta Police Department has launched an internal investigation  after actor, producer, writer, Tyler Perry,  accused two officers of racially profiling him during a traffic stop earlier this week.

Acting upon advice given to him from his "security team",  Perry  was driving from his Atlanta studio  when he made a left turn from the right lane to ensure he wasn't being followed. As a result of this, he was pulled over by two white police officers he describes as being "hostile" --at least until a black police officer arrived on the scene and recognized him.

What in the heck is going on over there in ATL? Y'all haven't gotten your civil rights game up to par yet? What do you all think of Tyler Perry's run-in with the police? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below. For more on this story go to the TMZ for full article.
