Share

Marlon Wayans has taken a firm stand against critics following backlash over his recent support for the LGBTQ+ community. The 51-year-old actor and screenwriter posted several photos on Instagram from an LGBTQ+-themed photoshoot on June 14, underscoring his unwavering support for the community and his transgender son.

Marlon Wayans shared four posts, starting with a photo of himself wearing a cap adorned with a rainbow and draped in a rainbow flag. He captioned it, “Happy PRIDE to all my LGBTQ+ peoples,” clarifying that although he is straight, he is proud to show love and support for the LGBTQ+ community.

Negative comments quickly followed, with one user, @mossimock, posting, “Lmao unfollow.” In a subsequent post, Wayans responded to the negativity with a photo of himself surrounded by rainbow-coloured balls, writing, “Yeah and just for THE HATE MONGERS….I’m posting another.” He emphasized his stance, saying, “As a father of a child in the LGBTQ+ community I show my support. Zero f**** what people think.”

Wayans did not shy away from addressing those who threatened to unfollow him, stating, “If I lost you… GOOD. Your hateful a*** never loved me in the first place. How can you love anyone when you’re too busy judging. Some of y’all funny. I’m a troll. I’ll post all day.” He concluded his message with, “HAPPY PRIDE to all my friends, fam, fans and loved ones. I am happy you’re happy… period.”

In a November 2023 interview on ‘The Breakfast Club,’ Marlon Wayans opened up about his oldest child’s transition from female to male. “I have a daughter that transitioned into a son. My daughter Amai is now Kai,” he said. Wayans shared his journey as a parent, evolving from ignorance and denial to complete unconditional love and acceptance.

Wayans’ public support during Pride Month and his candidness about his personal experiences highlight his commitment to advocating for the LGBTQ+ community, despite facing criticism.
