Bishop T.D. Jakes at Essence Music Festival: Talks Winnie Movie and Creflo Dollar


Special Shout out to Bishop T.D. Jakes for being a recipient of McDonalds 365 Black Award during Essence Music Awards. Watch as he makes his way through the Red Carpet comment on his new movie, “Minnie” and in a real cool way address the issue of Creflo Dollar and Child spanking!

One has to give Bishop Jakes an A for the way he handles the media.  No “Got cha!” opportunities with the Bishop he is always in full controll, it is more like “catch me if you can, Chile!

(The Root) — Bishop T.D. Jakes, head of Dallas megachurch The Potter’s House and the successful film producer behind Jumping the Broom, was honored by McDonald’s during Friday’s 365 Black Awards at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans.

Acknowledged for his work in the community, Jakes noted how wonderful it was to receive recognition not just for what he says from the pulpit but his actions. The spiritual leader spoke to The Root about producing Winnie, a Winnie Mandela biopic starring Jennifer Hudson, with Terrence Howard as Nelson Mandela. Jakes, who was accompanied by his daughter on the red carpet, weighed in on fellow pastor Creflo Dollar’s recent arrest, which he called a “family matter,” and talked about how he disciplined his own children.

“I did [spank], when it was appropriate …” he said. “I am so glad to be past that point, I can tell you!”
