Malik Yoba

Malik Yoba

That high-pitched sound you hear is Malik Yoba fans wailing at the sight of this new video that shows the hunky actor wearing lipstick and foundation.

The 50-year-old actor, best known for his role on the Fox police drama New York Undercover, posted the video on is Instagram account. Many of his female fans expressed disappointment in how comfortable the 'Cool Runnings' star seems in women's makeup.

Some of Malik's IG followers defended the actor, saying the makeup is for a Broadway acting role. But others point out that Denzel Washington never wore lipstick and foundation for an acting gig.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Folks get so mad bout nothing ... Is these fans smashing this man ... Better be worried bout the men they are currently smashing... SMH.... Leave folks alone ... Everyday it's an uproar on social devils layer media .. Get a clue folks leave it alone

  • Phillybruh

    It was for a play he's doing in NY...geesh

  • JRock

    Not sure if he is gay but I read this post on I think Yahoo and he does make it clear he is dressed this way because he is appearing in a play that was written and directed by the person he is standing next to.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    And why is he being compared to Denzel ... ? stay off social media folks....

  • KcoolMuziq

    Malik(Whom I worked with in the short lived series 'Bull' & "Girlfriends") is an actor very dedicated to his craft.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Why black male actors have to put on a dress and makeup to make some coins in Hollyweird? I never see masculine white male actors like Steven Segal, TomCruise, Brad Pitt or George Clooney have to do this.

  • Renee26

    People need to stop being so homophobic and judgmental...this man accepted this role and is making his money by performing on stage. It's his life and his coins to make. Him taking on that role did not make any straight men disappear geeeeesh!

  • Renee26

    Lol even with lipstick on his lips ashy huh

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    I really want to know when did acting like a homosexual become acting?

    I am really confused by that.

    Anyways, “How you doing Malik?”

  • Quitedeliteful

    This is an Afrofuturistic piece about the last 3 Black Women ruling America
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Maybe he's supposed to be one of the of the last three women???

  • Phillybruh

    There are whole straight white actors playing transgender and winning all kinds of awards. Black actors don't do it because they are scared of losing what little black support they do get.

  • LP

    Disgusting...

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Hmmmm I need context ...is he the last man on Earth and wearing a disguise to hide from the women or something for a moment in the play? I'll reserve judgement.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Like who? Name a few because we all know folks like to name the one exception.

  • Scorpiess

    Why not write / produce roles for hetros that promote hetrosexuality as opposed to the depopulation programming roles that they are forcing us to accept? Why not write about a strong black man who cares for his family? Why push this f@ggotry all day every fucking day?

  • Gloria

    Black people choose to be mad at the wrong sh*t.

    Nobody said anything when Ving Rhames played Holiday Heart for a movie role.

    Straight simpletons. SMH.

  • Phillybruh

    Jeffrey Tambor playing a whole transgender women before and after, Louie Anderson plays a whole fat women. The two actors on Grace and Frankie are both straight and play gay men.

  • Chuck

    Malik Yoba is a crack head, who will do anything for money. So, why the fuss? No one cares about this crack ninja!

  • Phillybruh

    Those plays roll through the chitlin circuit every couple months starring Cheryl pepsi Riley and insert black actor or old R&B singer here.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Are you forreal? You’re joking right?
    ???

    Something a little more recent and how about some A or at least B white actors please.

  • Renee26

    Why not write / produce roles for hetros that promote hetrosexuality

    UMMMMM do you not watch TV or movies at all??? There is no shortage; you are just so homophobic that the gays jump out at you and upset you

  • You Could Never

    Dustin Hoffman was in a movie that was nominated for 10 Oscars...in a dress.

  • Phillybruh

    Wait these are A list actors just older. And these shows are winning awards currently.

  • Renee26

    write about a strong black man who cares for his family

    Just a few shows that I personally watch that have strong black men who care for their families...Blackish, Greenleaf, This is Us...just to name a few. Maybe you should tune in since you are missing seeing this even though it's right under your nose on prime time tv

  • You Could Never

    Jared Leto Dallas Buyers club 2013. Won an Oscar...and a golden globe maybe a SAG Award too?...in a dress.

  • klwbaby

    According to a review of this play, Malik is God a mixture of Oprah and Obama.

  • You Could Never

    Caught up on Greenleaf this weekend. CHILLLLLLE. SHEW. Cannot wait for it to come back on

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    I thought we said masculine men ? and his sexual preference is questionable. But I do enjoy his talents.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Their sexuality is questionable as well. But I digress.

  • Phillybruh

    Charlie Sheens father and Jack from Law & Order....I guess only frail and feminine men are gay I guess.

  • Scorpiess

    Not homophobic, just anti 'gay agenda'. There is a difference. Learn it!

  • justlooking
  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence, my tax fraud dude...Blade, yup the list goes on and black folks happily support them.

  • Owww76

    Very true, I tremember back in the day that movie with Will Smith called Six Degrees of Separation, he played a gay man and there was a kissing scene and he was scared to do it. Denzel Washington told him dont be kissing no man on screen and they changed the scene.

  • Scorpiess

    Can't tune in as I am a Brit (living in England).

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Yeah it was funny at first, real funny. But after a two decades it’s become old.

  • You Could Never

    It doesnt matter. My point is black men are far from the only ones who do it for their craft. Men in GENERAL been putting on damn it dresses as part as acting since Shakespeare. That is a long LONG time. If you laughed along to Mrs. Doubtfire...hush. If you have EVER watched a Madea movie be quiet. If you dont turn it when Holiday Heart comes on BET for the gazillionth time then miss us with this.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I’m not going to get in an uproar about somebody who making more money than me. It’s just a play. Not that deep. I remember when Robert Guillaume played a role in Good Times where he wore heels. He played a junkie that wasn’t dead and went to his own funeral as a women. So what

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I love Nae Nae

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Right. That person sounds heterophobic. See how I can toss made up words around as well.

  • Noirluv45

    Fishbone! I love that episode.

  • You Could Never

    two decades? Black men been dressing as women on screen since at LEAST the 1940s. Dirty Gertie From Harlem. Written and directed by...a black man

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Me too it was hilarious

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    Christians are hilarious, but hey, they believe what they believe and everyone is due respect.

  • klwbaby

    Thank u!!! Its just a role on Broadway. If a picture wasn't released they probably wouldn't have known or cared about it.

  • Scorpiess

    Sick of the agenda. Not everyone will accept everything. People need to respect each other's views really. I don't accept trannies either. Sue me (shrugs).

  • Noirluv45

    Wasn't it hilarious?

  • Desiree Edwards

    lol! Malik seems to be enjoying himself!

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Laverne Cox- first trans to be on Cosmopolitan #SouthAfricaEdition

  • Waya Hedia

    Rule this earth? Like Africa is ruled? Or did she mean 'ruin'.

  • You Could Never

    Most of Africa just got rid of all of the whites that "colonized it" and "ruled" it. So rule like THAT. Or do I mean "ruin"

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    I don't know what it is but some men seem right at home when they're made up or dressed in womans clothing. SMH

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    "But others point out that Denzel Washington never wore lipstick and foundation for an acting gig."
    Denzel has NEVA'!

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Denzel is a devout Christian.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    He's a MAN.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    I’m sorry but everytime I scroll pass this comment it makes me chuckle ?

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    That too!

  • Yardgirl

    Was it worth it?? I am waaaaay behind (only watched 2 ep as I like to binge) and was thinking about deleting all of 'em. I trust ya girl so let a sista know! Same with "Queen Sugar", I am reading the book and it is so different from the show, I am distracted/confuzzled and was going to delete that too. Whiteys at work said to watch "Big Little Lies" and I hated all of them entitled saltines after watching on episode. So much TV so little time!!

  • Anunnaki

    Either black males play gay roles, with black women , or they play straight roles with white women.

    Either black women play, loud, hoddratish roles, that curse her black man out all the time. Or the educated black woman with white man...

  • Dahl

    http://writtalin.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/Nonono_cat.gif

    All anyone ever said was to put some Chapstick on those crusty lips, he took it too faaaaar ??

  • Anunnaki

    Lawd, they bout to take over africa, cause they cant do it in those other brown countries, they will hang them. They dont like gays or trans etc....

  • Cannelle

    You could always just turn the channel or turn off the television/internet. That's what I do whenever Trump's nasty a$$ face flashes across the screen.

  • Dahl

    That’s because he had already played a gimp years before Holiday Hort (as I call it). We knew what he was about long ago...

  • klwbaby

    Just curious, Denzel has never wore a dress or foundation but do u have an issue with him playing a drug kingpin or corrupt cop?

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    He has the VENACULAR (sic) down ! Booty bandit!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    A REAL MAN WOULDN'T DO THIS..... BUT A BROKE one would!

  • Dr. P

    At least them big azz ashy lips are moisturized. Hell, I spent the entire time NY Undercover was on, complaining about the dust caked on those lips. ? Chile I refuse to fake care about yet another black man earning his coinT the same way, Flip Wilson, Richard Pryor, Redd Fox and other late greats did.

  • You Could Never

    Yes! It's on netflix too

  • TiffaniZ

    Malik Yoba has always gave me down low tease. Get them coins boo!

  • Branch Davidian

    I cannot wait to see him star in the next Tyler Perry movie!!

  • Tay Gee

    Hetero's kill me, lol. Yes, let's make a huge deal about a man in lipstick because that's what's really wrong with the world, smh.

    Where do we draw the line? News Flash... all and I mean all actors wear makeup. Even if it's just foundation and eyeliner, they wear it. So is lipstick the tipping point for you? I just wanna know. #concernedreader lol

  • Applebootay

    He should have drew the line on that beat! LOL Hell to the Naw!

  • Applebootay

    See...you had to go there...LOL

  • Applebootay

    Don't say it.

  • Applebootay

    LOL

  • Applebootay

    Some facts here..

  • Tay Gee

    Lol, he looks like he is having fun, which is what matters in the situation.

  • Renee26

    I’m waiting with baited breath!!

  • shun king

    and life has been imitating art

  • TheOwley

    It looks like he in costume for a show? sigh.

  • Renee26

    What about anti all things called a sin then?? When people focus on the one sin (gay) and have more of an issue with that then anything else, notice that more than anything else, that is a sign of insecurity about gay in particular... that’s homophobia alright.

  • shun king

    cause gays spread AIDS

  • shun king

    Its alot of single black mothers who sons have turned out homosexual because the mom thought should could teach him to be a man so you can expect a backlash when you bring up this subject in America

  • Dr. P

    Well...them donut lips ain’t ashy no mo! ???

  • Applebootay

    ......ok.....

  • Applebootay

    A crack head? TEA Please?

  • Applebootay

    I don't think anyone is really MAD....he's gonna get clowned is all.....but I'm sure he knew that.....

  • Applebootay

    Some facts here too...

  • Applebootay

    Ok, I same as you when it comes to Green and Queen...I watched more of Queen tho, just couldn't stick to it....I did watch Big Little Lies, its one short season and its GUDT AZZ HALE!

  • Applebootay

    Maybe because we're just staying with topic...on another post....we'll anti that down too...LOL

  • Applebootay

    Ouch!

  • Phillybruh

    I hope whatever you have hurts! And your going through it alone!

  • Yardgirl

    Them rich white bitchy mean moms were a turn off and since only the saltines st work watched I was skeptical. I will go watch the other 6 episodes after I get caught up on my DVR. Thanks for the heads up??

  • Scorpiess

    It is scary. These pro gay ppl are vicious. How would they even get here if not for regular normal hetrosexuals? It is fine for them to be anti straight but god forbid it should be the other way around eh?!

  • Scorpiess

    I have already stated that I hate trannies too. It is all abominable to me. We have clearly been shown what is right and what is wrong. The bowel doesn't self lubricate incidentally so ....

    You are the kind that will be demanding that we accept paedophiles too. Well, that is also one of their agendas so what say you to that? Bestiality will soon follow and there you'll be, marching with the rest of the weirdos asking for acceptance.

  • shun king

    if you cant add anything to to conversation dont get personal

  • Scorpiess

    True but I don't live in Yankyland so no need.

  • Phillybruh

    No because A drug kingpin and anything corrupt is masculine and is of value in the black community.

  • Phillybruh

    He doesn't have too because he feeds yall the other stero type that yall value and he plays it well Masculine criminal..

  • Phillybruh

    I added that to the conversation what you said added nothing but hate. So like I said what ever you have I hope it hurts and that your going through it alone. Take it how ever you want!

  • shun king

    no thats just being personal.. but see the gays have gave alot of women in my city AIDS so of course some people are going to be upset.are you a homosexual is that why this has triggered you?

  • Phillybruh

    This topic and Sandras posts has nothing to do with AIDS you decided to bring that up because your still bitter someone gave it too you! It was about an actor playing a role for a play!

  • shun king

    nobody gave me nothing cause i dont screw gays..and the poster ask me what was the problem why people dont like gays and i told him/her why...like i said why are you triggered? are you a homosexual

  • Phillybruh

    I'm not triggered just amazed at your level of ignorance.

  • klwbaby

    Oh, that's the reason. I do remember people had a problem with Wesley Snipes when he played a drag queen but when he was Nino Brown, I don't remember people having a problem with it.

  • shun king

    are you a homosexual?

  • Phillybruh

    I can't be straight and offended by your posts?

  • http://ebonynsweet.com Ebony N’ Sweet

    Alot of actors wear make-up on Broadway lol... Most black people don't even go to Theater plays anyway, his fans need to calm down.

  • shun king

    yup i thought so i know why it got you so hot under the collar...you once told me about some bible verses i think you need to read about Sodom and Gomorrah

  • hottlanta

    Look at this video and see the group the Commodores putting on makeup. Got powder puffs, foundation, eyeliner and everything.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FrkEDe6Ljqs

  • BrittBrat2005

    That's totally different what these men doing today. The make-up they doing are for videos and movie type(they didn't have video editing and photoshop back in the day make-up was their photoshop. But these men today actually wearing it for beauty to look good for another man smh.

  • Phillybruh

    lol I have never told you about no bible versus. I don't know them well enough to be quoting you something I don't follow. Its a fairytale.

  • YellowSauce

    I WILL say this lol ... disappointment is what happens when you put a person on a pedestal ... yes have faith in them encourage them to greatness but never say never ...

  • ?Royalty?

    ??????

  • Ryan

    To be honest he might've been drunk. A long time ago he came to our school for a event and even back then we could tell he'd been drinking.

  • ?Royalty?

    Ive never seen that movie, specifically for that reason. I'm black. ??
    I didn't see that Dr Dre and Eazy E movie either, also for that same reason.

  • ?Royalty?

    ??

  • Ryan

    Open post - I wanna see that Stormy Daniels do an interview but that $130k trump paid her last year most definitely had to have had a NDA.

  • shun king

    i am pretty sure thats why you doing what you do you .just what in the world possess a man to get in the bed with another man is just totally beyond me

  • Phillybruh

    I'm fairly certain it isn't. But whatever helps you deal with your or not deal with your homosexuality best of luck to ya :)

  • V Dubb

    Indeed

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    Malik is tight with that tranny, Shauna Brooks.. I also read he and Michael DeLorenzo use to be an item, during the New York Undercover days.

  • RealATLPeach36

    Heartbreaking...my brother what the FUC* are you doing? What are you doing?

  • Yup, I said it

    These black men in Hollywood are about to start there own "me too" movement. They go to Hollywwird and get totally turned out.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Exactly geeze this must be a slow news days

  • Lolly Asher

    For a minute. It gets you oscars too.
    And how you doing malik, indeed.

  • Lolly Asher

    I question the decision to so called market the project this way. Seems like he's doing a favor but it's not doing anything for him. Hasn't he learned anything from Monique?

  • Chuck

    Google his faggot ass.

  • Chuck

    ? it’s facts, though.. mf is a known crack head.

  • Elevated Soul

    Obama promoted the gay lifestyle.Many Blacks worship that cat's crusty feet,so they are trying to make their savior happy.....

    I can't even say I'm surprised, that Malik alter ego "Malika" has shown up,for various reasons.....

  • Cannelle

    Neither do I. I live across the channel from you, and Trump's face still flashes across the screen, as do gay interactions. But gay people don't bother me. This is not an American only thing.

  • don juan

    As Dave Chappell said Malik Yoba has to wear the dress. It's a shame. I wonder who he had to sleep with as well

  • Scorpiess

    Gays don't bother you as you have been taught to accept their lifestyle even though not 50 years ago they were having electric shock therapy to correct their behaviour. Are you going to fuck your dog when they tell you that bestiality is acceptable also?

  • Yardgirl

    Thanks girl!??

  • SweetTEE

    Isnt that why he was killed of empire? I might be trippin

  • TRASHFACE BREEZY B

    Chile I’m just happy that he FINALLY added some moisture to them bad boys ??

    Demasculinizing of our men is so sad. "Buck Breaking" goes back to Slavery.

  • sunni_daze

    He been came out so maybe he's dressing how he feels

  • Bonita Johnson

    Lmao

  • Bonita Johnson

    One black man does not represent all men!!! Get over it!! He can do what he want y’all ain’t paying his bills ....?

  • FOR COMMENT

    this is so sad. They are destroying the male through social engineering. The black was always strong head of house hold leader even while being a slave. --This is what we have now.

  • SayWhatNow?

    I have a hand full of gay male cousins and to be honest it doesn't bother me, I guess because I knew that they would be gay since we were kids. but what they won't do is walk around with a damn purse and makeup on. Be gay all you want but lets us girls have some shit for ourselves!

  • SayWhatNow?

    And I really could care less about the why up top, he looks a damn mess, he's too big for that!

  • Guess Who

    What's next? A bussioplasty?

  • Look@m3

  • Look@m3

    NO, say it LOL

  • sunni_daze

    Years ago. This man is ghey

  • Look@m3

    I could answer. I rather see them play a drug king pin or a corrupt cop than to see them dressed like me. And I'm black!

    I saw both movies....didn't like the move period of him be ing a corrupt copt and the Eazy E movie I just wanted to see if there was any suspicion revealed on his death. Nothing wrong with that.

  • Look@m3

    I just googled and couldn't find anything....

  • Evillene

    For real? An ACTOR wearing make-up is a cause for concern? Next.

  • Trace da Ace

    yep....that killed it for me.....this picture is coochie drying material.....no bueno!!!

  • plumkin999

    There has been rumors of him being gay for years.

  • YES I SAID IT…

    He does look like Lafayette!!!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Masculine.
    Must not have seen his movies.

  • Tony Winston

    exactly he could be on set, chile these lonely women always looking for an excuse to blame a man for them not having man

  • Liah

    Since back in the day they've been saying he is gay....(NY Undercover)

  • Cannelle

    All that tells me is that some governments are finally starting to get their heads out of their asses when it comes to respecting human rights. The government also used to sterilize black people and American Indians back then, so your electro-shock point is...pointless.

    Am I to accept the mistreatment of humans because they are different? The definition of "normal" human clearly depends on the time period and place, and neither you or I would be considered "normal" given another circumstance.

    You seem to be from the UK. Alan Turing was gay and helped to win world war II. The British government is now (and should be) ashamed for how they treated him, a gay man who helped their asses win.

  • Scorpiess

    Human rights is one thing but to push this agenda - yes 'push' - it is wrong. You do realise that we are only suffering all these abominations due to the NWO? Yes roll your eyes but it is true.

    I am no conspiracy nut - just seeking the truth. We all know the gay and trans agendas (and soon to come paedo / bestiality / incest / necrophilia etc) are all due to our eventual descent into Satanism.

    Your government is currently trying to impose these Satanistic values on us and we (some of us) are not here for it.

    Keep on drinking the Kool - Aid. Don't be surprised when you are being forced to mount your own kid in a few year's time -

  • Cannelle

    My government? Ha, ok. Apparently you live in Europe, as do I. As far as I can tell, western European governments are more and more embracing what you hate. Maybe you should look at home first, if you feel that you are being indoctrinated. No need to go as far as the USA.

    I am no longer a Christian (too many crazies in organized religion), so don't believe in satan, the bible, or whatever such fairy tale nonsense.

    Oh, and I don't have children, so won't be any "mounting".

    I think that concludes our exchange.

  • Shannypoo1976

    OMG!!! I was thinking the same thing! He used to keep a ashy white ring around the perimeter of his mouth. Just nasty.

  • MRiGOThim

    I was thinking the same shit...this is nothing new lol!!!

  • LOVE ALWAYS

    That's so ashamed. Although, I hate to say this but he actually looks better in that make up because he is hard on the hard to me..... But still a damn shame he's in that make up. Black women are so doomed if we relying on relationships with Black men..... Boy ol boy!

  • LOVE ALWAYS

    That's so ashamed. Although, I hate to say this but he actually looks better in that make up because he is hard on the hard to me..... But still a damn shame he's in that make up. Black women are so doomed if we relying on relationships with Black men..... Boy ol boy!

  • facingrealit1

    Lipstick or Vaseline - but this negro has some ashy lips...real talk!

  • Hmmm~?

    We really need to discuss how quickly black folks will give up on their own. This black man wearing makeup does not equate to him being gay or weak. It could be harmless fun or for something relatedto a business opportunity. Yet everyone is acting like he just burst out of the closet in a Beyoncé leotard complete with some red bottoms. Why are we so quick to do this? Why are we especially so quick to question a black mans sexuality? I’ve never seen a race of people so damn quick to label their men as gay. We always talk about society emasculating our men when we’ the main ones doing it. Can y’all please chill.

  • Scorpiess

    We are being indoctrinated into accepting the devil. It is that simple. Your assertion that you don't believe in the bible, satan etc is the exact response that your government is relying on to keep their evil deeds / intentions secret and covert.

    Of course the governments around the world are embracing all this filth - they have to lol.

    Just because you 'don't believe' in the bible doesn't mean that they don't. They do. Trust me. All governments are controlled by the Rothschilds / illuminati. Go on roll your eyes and turn off - they rely on people like you lol.

    Wake up!

    Nice chatting to you -

  • Tha Truth

    The world we live in today is just too sensitive. Now most people idolize these men in heels and wigs and live for them exposing DL men. However, this guy clearly acting is causing his own kind to react and degrade him. We have to do better black people! And this is nothing new. What do we call Martin as Sheneneh and Jamie Fox as Wanda???
    I wish people would put this much time and energy into things that make the world better. We are the worst against our own kind.

  • Ant Hill

    Boom Bye Bye like Buju.

    Yes, that is what I read.
