NEW YORK, NEW YORK - JANUARY 13: Tyler Perry attends the premiere of Tyler Perry's "A Fall From Grace" at Metrograph on January 13, 2020 in New York City.

On Sunday (Apr. 5), Tyler Perry went to a Houston’s restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia, and left a $500 tip for each of the 42 servers who were currently out of work, as TMZ reports.

The director’s tip was over 20 percent and totaled  $21,000. According to the publication, Perry is a huge fan of the restaurant chain and often patronizes Atlanta’s Northside Parkway location.

Perry is known for giving back. After the Bahamas was devastated by Hurricane Dorian, Perry had a plane flown down to the island filled with supplies.
