*Sounding like he was hired by Tyler Perry, actor Clifton Powell had a few harsh words of his own about Spike Lee earlier this week on the “Russ Parr Morning Show.”

The actor went in on Lee, repeatedly ranting that he would beat Spike’s a**:

“He has never hired me, I don’t really care, because I would never want to work with him. Tyler [Perry] has found his genre. The problem with being African American in film as a producer, you have to be so worried about stepping on toes. We have just a few outlets in terms of the dimensions we are as a people. We zero in because there are not enough dimensions of what we do.”

“To be honest, I don’t like Spike Lee. Spike is worse than any one of the mans [sp]. Because back in the day…and I hope Spike is listening cause I’ll beat your punk a**. I don’t like Spike. I have never said it publicly out, but Spike is a hater…I shouldn’t have said it like this, but I’m going to tell you the truth. I’m from the streets and you got to take care of your people .. .Spike needs to go sit his punk a** down and stop talking about Tyler Perry. Tyler Perry was homeless about 10, 12 years ago and Spike wasn’t writing him no checks. I don’t like Spike Lee because I don’t like his politics as it pertains to how he deals with African-Americans. I auditioned for Spike several times, he kept all of us waiting for hours. It was insulting, he made people fly across country, pay for themselves and come to auditions. Spike is the worst and he needs to go sit his punk a** down!”
