Tyler Perry may have started it, but Kid Rock just put a big red bow on the trend.
He paid off everything that was on layaway at a Walmart store in Nashville. He tweeted after he did it, probably so that he could get the trend to start trending. He’d followed Perry’s lead, so maybe others will have enough holiday spirit in their hearts to do the same. We could call it the #LayawayGiveaway.
When Perry started it, he tried to do it anonymously. But the good word spread, so he posted a video on Twitter last week confirming the news, saying that he’d paid off the layaway items at two Walmarts in Georgia: one in East Point and one in Douglasville. His total bill was reportedly $430,000.
