Tyler Perry leaves '$21K tip' for staff at his favorite Atlanta restaurant while getting takeout

After creating the star-studded #HesGotTheWholeWorldChallenge to raise COVID-19 awareness, Tyler Perry decided to use some of his $600M fortune to help the staff at one of his favorite restaurants in Atlanta.

On Sunday, the 50-year-old movie/TV mogul left a $500 tip for each of the 42 out-of-work servers employed at the West Paces location of Houston's while picking up a to-go order, according to TMZ.

Perry's $21K tip serves as a bit of a cushion for the struggling workers, who might have to wait up to 20 weeks for a $1,200 (and $500 for each child) stimulus check from the federal government.

As of Sunday, 219 people in Georgia have died from coronavirus and a further 6,742 have been infected, according to 11Alive.com.
