The word is Tyler Perry is the new owner of  the bankrupt American Airlines and is giving it the bold new name of African American Airlines!  Is it true?

According To:  WeeklyWorldNews.com

DALLAS –   Tyler Perry reportedly made an offer to buy American Airlines.  They accepted.  The new airline:  African-American Airlines.

The Texas-based AMR Corporation, the parent company of American Airlines, announced that the company filed petitions for Chapter 11 reorganization in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York, “in order to achieve a cost and debt structure that is industry competitive and thereby assure its long-term viability and ability to continue delivering a world-class travel experience for its customers.”

WWN has learned that wealthy actor-director Tyler Perry has made an attractive offer for American Airlines.  The offer, said to be near $5 billion dollars, was quickly accepted by the airline.

“Mr. Perry made a bold, brilliant move… he is the smartest mogul in the county,” said a source close to American Airlines.  ”No other businessman in the country had the guts to try to bail out the biggest airline in the United States.”

Perry, the creator of the “Madea” character and the “House of Payne” sitcom, reportedly plans to rename American Airlines – African-American Airlines.  The new Perry run airline will be targeted to African-American passengers, but industry experts say that many white, asian and latino passengers will want to fly the airline, “just to be cool.”

So do you think this is cool?  Are you excited to book a future flight on African American Airlines or do you think this is all a big joke? You may comment below!
