Marlon Wayans is the latest comedian to chime in on the infamous Katt Williams "Club Shay Shay" interview.

While on Big Boy's Neighborhood radio show, Wayans explained, "I'm tired of the rhetoric of, 'Oh, you sold out in Hollywood 'cause you wore a dress," Wayans said. "Negro, I wore a dress, it's called 'White Chicks.'You know what we did? We did a classic" referring to Katt Williams' comments about male comedians wearing dresses.

Wayans continued, "Oh, so white people when they wear dresses... when Robin Williams wears a dress in 'Mrs. Doubtfire,' he's brilliant. when Tom Hankswears a dress in Bosom Buddies, oh, he's brilliant. Right? When Dustin Hoffman wears a dress in Tootsie, he wins an Oscar."

"Black people, soon as we put on a dress, we start tearing each other down. This is art, this is comedy. You think I'm gonna tear down Flip Wilson? You think I'm gonna tear down Tyler Perry? I'm not gonna tear down any of these brothers. It's comedy, and we should embrace our comedy – all of it. We shouldn't have one type of humor. We should embrace all of our humor."
