On Sunday, Tyler Perry made an effort to boost the bank accounts for restaurant employees who've seen their bottom lines plummet due to the coronavirus' economic destruction

In slightly less dramatic parlance, that means he gave out $21,000 in tips to workers at a Houston's restaurant in Atlanta. TMZ reports that the five-figure gratuity amounted to $500 each for 42 employees. Note that, while nearly all industries are taking a beating, restaurants (and the hospitality business, in general) have been especially hard hit by the moratorium on public gatherings. 

TMZ adds that Perry's a supporter of the chain and that he frequents the particular location that got this sum.
