I know we trash Hollywood a ton, and there are a ton of things going on in the film industry that deserve criticism.

If we’re going to rip them when they deserve it, then we must also praise people in Hollywood would they go above and beyond.

Perry dropping a tip of $21,000 for out of work servers is the definition of going above and beyond.

Perry has been a wildly successful man in the entertainment industry. He’s made a ton of hit films, and he’s made a ton of money in the process.

Now, he’s helping those without the same resources as him get by during this brutally tough time. That’s what America is all about.
