After sharing a post celebrating Pride and his son — who identifies as trans— Marlon Wayans faced some criticism from fans. On Friday (June 14), the comedian shared his photo shoot and was seen with a pride flag draped across his shoulder. “Happy PRIDE to all my LGBTQ+ peoples,” Wayans wrote. “P.S. I’m STRAIGHT… well, according to my child CISGENDER male. I just love and support my peoples.” While many comments were supportive, there were quite a few criticizing the comedian.

“Some people aren’t homophobes. Some people were just raised believing in God and read about what God did to Sodom and Gomorrah,” one person wrote in the post’s comment section. Another user noted that as a result of the post they’re going to unfollow Wayans. “I’m the First to unfollow you and delete all your movies on my Netflix,” they wrote. Whereas, one fan noted that instead, the focus should be on men’s mental health. “What about men’s mental health month instead of this pride crap.

“If I lost you, good. You’re hateful a** never loved me anyway,” He says

However, Marlon Wayans seemed unbothered and made several posts after the fact. In the next post, the comedian addresses the haters directly for their homophobic comments. “Yeah and just for the HATE MONGERS… I’m posting ANOTHER,” Wayans said. “As a father of a child in the LGBTQ+ community I show my support. Zero f-cks what people think. If i lost you… GOOD! Your hateful ass never loved me in the first place. How can you love anyone when you’re too busy judging.”

He also fired off another post, sporting a rainbow mask, and a shirt reading “Love Wins.” The comedian noted he could “do this sh*t all day.” He believes that “Love and Laughter will always drown hate.” In the fourth and final post, spotted again with the rainbow mask, he expressed his support even more. “For people to be that homophobic wreaks of repressed feelings/desires. Bruh, don’t live like that. Come on out. Be you. That’s what PRIDE is all about… acceptance,” he wrote.
