Marlon Wayans Responds To Negative Comments On Post About Gay Daughter
It almost goes without saying how much Marlon Wayans loves his kids. The actor/comedian created a whole show “Marlon” about his life as a single dad which ran for two seasons on NBC — so we don’t know why anyone in their right mind would have the nerve to speak a peep negative about his babies — but a couple of bold MF’ers did. Marlon set them fools straight real quick too. And we’re proud of him.
On Sunday Marlon posted this photo of his daughter Amai, 19, with the rainbow sole of her shoe showing along with the caption:
Happy pride 🌈 to my pride and joy. I wouldn’t change one effing thing about you. Love you to the moon around the sun through the galaxies and back again.
How beautiful is that? Acceptance and support means the world to most children and Marlon was quick to prove himself ready to go above and beyond.
Many of his followers flooded his comments with hearts and messages of support, such as this one:
every queer kid deserves a parent like this 💖
and this one:
Wow you’re a great parent!! She’s lucky to have you!!💯💯💯💯🙌🙌🙌🙌
But not every comment was in support of Marlon’s choice to embrace his daughter:
Take this guy hating from the sidelines (and not alone either, the comment received over 400 likes):
She’s not old enough to understand what that’s really all about. You have the power to change lives Bro, don’t teach her that
Rather than delete the comment, Marlon quickly shut down the argument by saying:
“She’s 19. She’s who she is until or until she don’t [sic] choose different. Love her for her not what I want her to be.”
Then there was this one, also not alone in his or her ignorance (with nearly 300 likes) who commented:
You think if you support her you are good ??? Being a parent is not about saying yes to everything no you need to say yes on the good things only now just one question if you really support her would you give up being a grandfather because of this stupid decision that she made because as last as remember two girls can’t make a baby 👀
Marlon addressed this as well, a little more firmly too!
“there’s technology and i got the means,” Marlon responded. ” so thank u shallow fu**er. Go hate your own kids.”
There was also someone who simply said “D—n unfollow. Sad s—t.”
“Bye,” Wayans commented back with a waving hand emoji.
We already loved him, but this just added an extra layer of respect due. There are so many people walking around the world with battered and bruised hearts and egos because their parents didn’t show them this kind of unconditional acceptance. Kudos to Marlon for this.
