ATLANTA, July 17 (UPI) -- Tyler Perry publicly shared a letter on Facebook on Friday about Whitney Houston and Bobbi Kristina Brown.

In the post, the mogul penned for the public to give the only daughter of Houston and Bobby Brown the privacy she deserves. In June, the 22-year-old was put in hospice care after being in a coma since Jan. 31. Perry pleads for people to give the families involved "some decency and respect."

"This morning I woke up with Whitney on my mind. I couldn't help but think about all that she must have dreamed for her child. I know this was not her dream... And as difficult as this time is for the people that love both Whitney and Krissi, what makes it more egregious is the blatant disrespect, lies, and ignorance that are rapidly printed in this awful time. For some reason, it has become human nature in our society to look for, seek out, and celebrate darkness, glory in tragedy, and enjoy reading and reporting it,"

He continued, "It makes me sad to know that everybody wants to be the first to report something awful. So much so, that they find it OK to speak death onto those who are still alive. May I ask you all to please show some decency and respect? Not only to Krissi's family, but also to the other families that are there in this place. Not only is Krissi at the center but there are several other families who are grieving the loss of their loved ones at the same time. It's heartbreaking to think that even in a time like this, this child is still not allowed any peace. I assure you, the family will issue an official statement if something changes. Until then, can we just pray for Krissi, and the Houston and Brown families?"

Perry has been a constant source of support for the Brown family. When he first found out about Brown's hospitalization, earlier this year, he offered his private plane as soon as he heard the news.

A source told US Weekly he lent his plane to Bobby on Thursday, so he could fly to Atlanta and by his daughter's side.
