Actor and director Tyler Perry went to his Facebook earlier today to apologize to his dear friend Oprah Winfrey, who is now suffering an injury, thanks to the star. (Well, in Perry's defense, it was a kind gesture.)

The "Alex" Cross star sent Oprah a big flower arrangement for her birthday -- so sweet, right? -- but it seems like Winfrey didn't maintain the proper posture when trying to pick it up.

"I FEEL SO BAD," Perry wrote.

"I like to send really large flower arrangements to people for whatever occasion. Well, I sent one to Oprah yesterday for her birthday. She strained her back picking it up. No joke! Feel better Oprah. Happy birthday. Sorry. :-( Next year I'm sending her one rose. :-)"

That sounds like a good plan.
