Tyler Perry, a close friend of Meghan Markle, has been criticized by film fans in response to his latest Netflix movie.

The actor and producer helmed Mea Culpa, a romantic thriller that debuted on the streaming service last week.

Perry welcomed Markle and Prince Harry into his home when the couple relocated to the United States in 2020 after departing from the Royal Family. Additionally, he made appearances in their Netflix documentary series.

The couple, along with their son Archie, lived in the 54-year-old's Beverly Hills home for a few months before they moved to a home in Montecito.

Perry found fame as an actor before focusing on directing and producing, and just days after Mea Culpa landed on Netflix, he faced criticism from several viewers over the “boring” plot.

Starring Kelly Rowland, the film follows her character, a criminal defense attorney, who agrees to defend a man who’s been accused of murdering his girlfriend.

However, X, formerly Twitter, has been flooded with complaints and backlash to the new flick ever since it became available to watch.

“This movie is boring… #MeaCulpa,” one user wrote while another fumed: “#MeaCulpa is the worst movie I’ve seen in a long time. The acting so terrible it was cringe to watch, the storyline so predictable and boring, what a waste of time.”

A-lister Perry offered his support to the Sussexes after their sensational exit from the royals.

Speaking on NBC’s Today back in 2022, he said of the couple: “Yes, it was a very difficult time for them. What I know about the two of them, that I wish the world knew, is how much they love.

"These two people love each other. The love they have is really, really moving and I just wanted to do anything I could to support them,” he added.
