Marlon Wayans' Instagram followers believe some things should stay private. The comedian lashed out at "ignorant" trolls who criticized him for a post celebrating his teenage daughter's lesbian lifestyle.

The 46-year-old actor shared a photo of daughter Amai Wayans, 19, wearing sneakers that displayed the rainbow colors of the Pride flag - a symbol of homosexuality - on the soles of her sneakers.

"Happy pride to my pride and joy," Marlon wrote in the image caption. "I wouldn't change one effing thing about you [sic]. Love you to the moon around the sun through the galaxies and back again."

Amai is Wayans' daughter by his ex-wife Angelica. They also share a son, Shawn Wayans, 17.

While many of Marlon's followers praised him for the touching post, others saw an opportunity to question his parenting.

"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," one person commented.

Marlon defended his daughter, replying: "She's 19. She is who she is until or until she don't choose different. Love her for her not what I want her to be."

Another follower suggested he should delete the negative comments: "I'm sure you can delete these negative comments. Let's keep this happy. Why some people have to be so opinionated. Praying they drown in their own negativity."

But Marlon explained he made the decision to keep the comments up for an important reason.

"I thought of erasing them but I need the world to see the ignorance that still exist [sic]," he wrote. "Objective without obstacles is a worthless triumph. We all will some day get to unconditional love. Because of my daughter i am one step closer. I am not God, i don't judge i just LOVE. And still pray for the haters because i refuse to judge them too i just love.”

    19? Seems old enough to make her own decisions. Next.

  • Junkanoo

    Oh let them get as angry as they want to negative emotions contribute to illness in the human body so they can stay pressed

  • TriniHarlem

    I really enjoyed the Marlon show on ABC. Sorry it's not coming back for season 3. All I got.

  • Gloria

    People are really mad at parents for loving they grown azz kids? And if he was to denounce his love for her, they would still be mad. Long story short, fuck what people think!! They will always hate on you and be miserable, regardless.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I have learned you cant share with social media a long time ago .... just don't.... praise your child to their face .... you don't have to show da world that ..... cause the world will judge you ... your feelings for your child is between you and that child ... periodt .... I wish Marlon and his family the best .... you cant share with the world anymore .... it's a new day and this world ain't shyt to put it Frank ....

  • tintin

    The internet, Social media honestly is very evil but hey we've all participated in saying some f**ked up sh&t. People just need to have thick skin and learn to ignore a lot of things said. Celebrities will always be talked about , they have to just know how to not let it get into their heads.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    He had a show on ABC... I thought it was Netflix ... didn't even know

  • Gloria

    I do miss the times before the social media age. Every time I see someone post a meaningful tribute or acknowledgement for their loved ones, I just think "I hope you at least said this to that person's face or called them!" Why do strangers need to know you love your wife, accept your daughter being a lesbian, etc.? Too much clout chasing for me.

  • TriniHarlem

    My forever sentiment about social media. I used to share here and since disqus no mas. My energy is not to be consumed with the unwanted.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    And never pray for a hater Marlon I can assure those prayers are voided periodt ..... save those prayers for those who do love without judgements .... there want ever be help for a hater periodt ! (1)

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I ain't ever doing it no more ever ...

  • free

    but she is not the celebrity. he put her out there like that unless she is posting this on her own IG. nevertheless, she is getting on IG what she will get in the real world so i'm not sure why folk get all up in arms. i just think celebs need to not publicly post shit unless they have the green light from their kids and their kids understand what the ramifications are. once it's out there, there is no reeling it back in.

  • EasyBreezy

    *Yawn* Have a terrific Tuesday, Roses!

  • TriniHarlem

    NBC my fault but yes it was a summer sitcom. I enjoyed it. Even his sister did an episode which was funny.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    This whole world is still stuck on how people view shyt on the outside .... social media is a trap ... a big one ....when people learn that most of the mess on there is false .. they will get a clue smh ... leave that mess alone .... it doesn't serve anyone when dealing with intimate genuine love .... expect backlash ....

  • luVn_liFe…

    that's right defend your child and love her uncondtionally No Matter what!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I love his sister beautiful woman she is ??

  • TriniHarlem

    I miss the days before dial up and even the dial up era.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Welp da kid lives like that ... I'm not sharing nothing but an opinion on here ..... periodt ....

  • Elevated Soul

    What did he expect? You go to social media to announce her sexuality as if it's relevant to the world.

    Newsflash: Some people will agree and express support. Other people will not agree and will express non support. He is too d@mn old to not realize that everyone will not agree with him and do they have to.

    Marlon(whom I met at a 'Wayans Brother's' sitcom taping) has a few other things up his sleeve. That i wish I could elaborate on.

  • Renee26

    Marlon got sense and skinny ankles...

    Call me Marlon!!

  • Mielle Downey

    No one cares about this. So your daughter is a lesbian? She not the first and won't be the last. We are all humans and it's not like gay people are unicorns.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    ????

  • Renee26

    She probably has her own social media pages and posts plenty about being out. He probably took the pic from one of her posts like most parents do.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Those kids look NOTHING like their papi! Are they mixed with Asian?

    Oh regards to his daughter’s $exuality https://media3.giphy.com/media/Pjhtvd3bV5KBa/giphy.gif

  • Renee26

    Which is all he expressed... MFs got an issue with her shoe having the flag. Sooooo what!! He loves her...her full self. Those mf's must not have gotten the same love from their parents. Fugg em ?

  • AphroKween

    Lol..Keep it to yourself if you cant share.

  • Yoni7

    Why is it that he's labeled as "LASHED OUT" instead of "defends his daughter" as if HE'S the one in the wrong?

  • Topic Influencer

    I skipped the first post. But folks know good and damn it WELL if he would have posted her sans explanation or annoucement if you will, it would have been the EXACT comments. He says his of age baby girl is gay and its well why you have to announce it?

  • Yoni7

    Them ankles be IT, don't they?

  • hottlanta

    Folks make gay announcements for their kds like people make announcements for them going to school. A bit much.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Whole damn family looks good ... saw a recent video on them .... everyone looks great

  • Renee26

    Chile... I ignore my daddy sayin ish online. Cause that mf never answers my calls, reply to voicemail or text but his ass wanna express his love on social media. Fake ass

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Glad he is supporting his daughter!

    Gotta roll with the punches when posting publicly.

    Marlon looks good!

  • Scromes1212

    He could have left it off social media and been just as proud and supportive of his daughter. But I guess he is a celebrity so maybe that's why he feels he should address publicly

  • Renee26

    You taught me well!! ?

  • MJF

    lol same, I moved to New York at 17 so I definitely thought I was GROWWWWWNNNN. Now I'm figuring out I actually don't know anything about life lol, still learning

  • Blak

    People out their kids for attention on social media and that's it. If she's a dyke as a result of his irresponsible parenting then expect to be criticize. No need to wish someone a happy pride as if it's a birthday, it's a made up event, who cares

  • Scromes1212

    He probably had the same work done Keenan had cause I saw him on a in living color reunion and that is a different face lol

  • Marlika

    I know but it was hard turning 40 for me. Some people take it hard getting older. I’m thankful to see another year.

  • Carrington

    People are ignorant. If SHE's brave enough to come out in a homophobic world and say, unapologetically, "I am that I am"... why can't he, as a parent who loves and supports his daughter BECAUSE she's his daughter, come out and say, "And I love and support you 100% no matter WHAT!"? ESPECIALLY during pride month?
    That's HIS daughter. Y'all MFs come out and post pictures of your children for graduating 8th grade, but he can't be proud of his daughter? You think anyone on your social media accounts give a f*ck about you celebrating your daughter's prom dress, or your new grandbaby? Why do WE get to celebrate $hit that no one cares about, but if he lets the world know that he supports his gay daughter (during PRIDE MONTH - which, I didn't know was a thing until this week) - there's a problem?
    Y'all will support your deadbeat, murdering assed brother doing a prison pose while IN prison with a FB post... but you can't support your gay child. I'm with the Wayans boy - F*CK people... I'll always love my kid more than I give ONE f*ck about what social media thinks about it.
    Go, Marlon! (and your doorter already had a mustache so, this just makes sense).

  • Renee26

    That last comment... I cannot ??? that just mean she got that good good...so I've heard

  • Rayscoty

  • Scromes1212

    It's a blessing. Why do you think you took turning 40 so hard, if you don't mind me asking?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    But she is the child of a celebrity which unfortunately makes her a public figure.

    Social media is a stage for the phony and fraudulent. They love to show out for likes! But know damn well their "internet life" is nothing like the real world lol

    She almost 60 and she a white woman, I expected her to look older to be honest.

    And neither was THIS post about you... so, if more than two sentences is too much for you... either go to Twitter where it's designed for people like you - or keep going. I think I'll be OK.

    I didn't watch it but I already know the Central Park 5 story. Such a shame that it takes a TV show to really obtain public support and outrage by this clear example of systematic oppression 30 years after everything has happened. And banning her books, what good will that do? She is already a best selling author and has made plenty of money.

    I want to know the statute of limitations on child abuse in NYS and I strongly believe that Linda Fairstein should be charged with child abuse. She ABUSED those children, especially Korey Wise who was a minor with a learning disability. She should absolutely face charges for abusing those children!

  • the guest

    To me it looks like he was dealing with a lot of inquisitiveness about his daughter and he announced and owned it. If I knew him and his family, I’d see his daughter as a unusually masculine. But it’s also none of my business and I wouid never ask a parent something deeply personal about their child. But I’m old school, I still believe in personal space and respect.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Happy Early Birthday...I understand...every year after I turned 21 I cried up until this year...Its just something about each year moving farther away from the innocent untainted part of myself that made me upset...I never thought of the bright side of me being older, creating life and seeing love...I understand...

  • Carrington

    If you pay attention; It's always the ones constantly on here talking about, "I don't have a problem with gay people - just come out the closet. It's the ones who hide in the closet that I have a problem with!" that are also the ones who are always talking about, "Why TF do "they" always feel like they need to come out of the closet? "We" don't give AF!" when they come out of the closet.
    Stay woke.

    Yeah but she put the idea in the police head that those boys did it. Clearly you didnt watch the show.

    That dad got to me. His dad was his hero. He had to go thru that to see that his dad wasnt the man he thought he was. Lilhots saw an interview n they asked him did he forgive his dad he said no.

    I knew about the Central Park 5. Just didn't know what their lives were to THAT extent. I don't think anybody knew.......until now. All we knew was there were five young boy's, wrongly accused of raping a white woman in Central Park. They were exonerated and won some money. Nobody knew HOW they ended up being pulled down to the precinct. Their mental toll it took on them. Their families they came from. The struggles they faced afterward. The struggles their families faced afterward. I'm sure not a lot of people were privy to what was shown in this Netflix series. We only know of the "cover" story.

    Nothing slow about that man who stood strong, survived, and donated nearly $200,000 and started his own legal program to help others. He had a learning disability that went untreated because the NYC school system and judicial system failed him. But he’s victorious in the end!

  • Phillybruh

    Her very same officers arrested the man who actually did it days later and never correlated the two. Because they wanted these five.

  • the guest

    Kalif was all alone. I know it helped these five to know they each other was having the same struggle. Kalif has no ally.

  • XoXo

    I like Marlon as an actor. But what does he expect when he voluntarily elected to publicize that information. Did he expect everyone to jump on the bandwagon? Eff that!!!

  • Parent

    Oh honey you definitely need to watch that docuseries on Netflix. It's the Kalief Browder Story. Bronx boy wrongfully accused of robbing a Mexican. And they made him rot in jail for 3 years because they couldn't find the witness.

  • Parent

    His story really broke me down for months. still get emotional from it. Like right now just thinking about it.

  • dru and neil

    I’m more surprised that the kids are mixed, than gay.

  • Parent

    He had a learning disability prior to all this.

  • Phillybruh

    You don't have a team, friends, family. Maybe that's why no one wants to rally behind or root for you. Do you give what you expect to receive? I root for all my friends gay and straight.

  • Yoni7

    I know the story. Abused asf while in there. Then he later committed suicide after he got out.

  • Parent

    Agreed though.

    You sound like a complete fool. There are people in all races who don't support the gay agenda but for some reason gays and those that support the gay agenda seem to only be concerned about Blacks who don't...

    He's proud of "his" daughter.. Why should he keep it a secret. As a matter of fact, I've been following him on IG for years and this is not a secret. She came out about a year or two ago..

    I don't have Instagram, and I haven't lurked on his, but I don't see why people would attack him for supporting his brolic looking daughter. I mean she LOOKS LIKE A BOY feature / facial structure- wise ANYWAY. I would have been surprised if SHE WASN"T lesbian, and yes he is her father, he SHOULD support her, but people gonna get enough of putting their business all out on Social Media. STOP WHINING!!!!! When you put YOUR BUSINESS out their on social media, you give strangers the right to comment and every comment aint gonna be kind, unfortunatley....AINT that why all social media platforms have a COMMENT SECTION???? DUH!!!!!!! That is why I don't have social media because I am sensitive and my skin is too thin and I don't need no EXTRA criticism in my life, but at the same time, I am only child so I have NEVER needed validation FROM ANYONE..my mother and father MADE SURE OF THAT. So I don't feel the need to put myself out there.

    There have been investigative journalists that did expose a lot of what happened but I’m sure that TV show was super informative for those who knew about them or didn’t know. I don’t think it would do me any good to watch though so I won’t but I’m glad more people know about it/the effects of it for sure. I hope that this will encourage others to take initiative and research what is really happening to us in the justice system. The Central Park 5 was not, is not, and will not be the only case of injustice for black boys/men.

  • Scromes1212

    That's not a prosecutors job though. Come on now smh she can't be involved in every police interrogation

  • Scromes1212

    That's a tv show, cut it out. That's not 100% what actually happened.

  • Yoni7

    Yep.

    Wealthy people make a big deal about their child being gay. Poor people dont have time they got bills to pay. They trying to get to work. You dont go into McDonald's n place your order and the cashier says my child is gay.

    Sometimes people announce things not because they agree but because it's the only way they can clear their conscious that they don't agree. It's the politically correct culture of right-is-wrong and wrong-is-right. Men taking hormones are competing against "real" women in sports. Now they trying to push ped0philia and pederasty, bestiality, and anything degenerate and against the "natural" laws of this universe. Wayans, Gabrielle Union, and the others are nothing but followers and suckers. I wouldn't be surprised if Marlon swings both ways. None of them said a word about the abuse of that little black boy in the hands of Charlize Theron raising him as a girl because at the age of 3 he said he was a girl. Not a peep. Wayans is not proud. He's a weak azz man if you want to call him a man. No "REAL" man is going to feel "proud" about this bullsh$t. Even if they "pretend to" by announcing it to the world. And no woman who respects the gift of the creation of men as a companion to the woman will accept it either. But don't forget, the elite have been working on turning our men into women for some time now. Weak men fall for the whole "toxic masculinity" foolishness because they are cowards. They've been working on destroying the nuclear family and it's working .No society..and I mean NO SOCIETY can function like this.

    Oh ok. I think we all go through that

  • smartchickfl

  • JENNYJONES1

    OK I WASN'T TRYING TO BE UGLY BUT I THOUGHT THE SAME THING, THINKING HE WAS ANNOUNCING HIS PRIDE IN HIS 'SON' BEING HAPPY & TRANSGENDER..........JENNY JONES!!!

  • smartchickfl

    That's a horrible thing for you to wish on someone. Do you think these yt cops care if a black male is gay or straight when they harass them? We need more unity in the black community.

  • Connie

    Its been too long, we need an update on Joey

  • PrettyMeka08

    I thought June was Black Music Month. I used to see that every June growing up.

  • chan chan

    A lot of these celebrities be transgendering these kids as babies. She was probably born a boy and now she’s a girl. Low key I think Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade is doing the same thing. Their daughter look like a baby boy.

  • Xsjado

    All I see is a parent supporting their child. That’s the way it should be. He's proud of his daughter, cool.

    If he wants to share his happiness with the world, cool. I’m not offended by anyone’s happiness for their child, gay/straight/or otherwise.

    More power to them. ??

  • Renee26

    Swear!

  • PrettyMeka08

    That means it must be a good read, if they’re trying to censor it.

    That will never happen. Joey had a loving father who he bonded with. But good try though. ??

    when GOD judges people, He will be judging according to His word and decree set forth that the wages of sin = DEATH. all those found in opposition and rebellion to His word will be judged accordingly.
    if they are fine with it, so be it.

  • Lakie O’Sean Rivers

    ?????? I hate how the world takes everything and dirtys it. ?

  • Miss Thang

    He’s proud that his daughter licks cat? How is that something to be proud of?

  • the guest

    I think the point is a parent’s love should be unconditional. But personally, I think there is a Hollywood agenda and celebrities want to socialize a child to be gay for Hollywood acceptance.

  • the guest

    Lol

    If that were true a lot of people I know would have dropped dead a long time ago.

  • Trentaye

    I appreciate your altruism, sis. The black race hates black LGBTQ, period. We are NOT Wanted, Welcomed or Respected by the WHOLE OF BLACK PEOPLE. Honestly, It's very difficult for me to give any f_cks about what heterosexual black men face, when they are FIRMLY invested in my oppression and degradation. It's very interesting how the narrative becomes "Us" when white cops are shooting heterosexual black men, but shifts to "Them" when Trans black women are murdered. We're only black when it's convenient. Lastly, I'll become outraged when white cops start targeting "black LGBTQ" specifically... until the I will remain unbothered the same way black heterosexists do when black LGBTQ people are murdered.

  • Xsjado

    Whatever she does in her own personal life is none of my business. On top of that, this is his family and his choice of what he wants to share with whomever.

    You completely missed the point.

    If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed
    an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon
    them." Leviticus Chapter 20 verse 1

  • Trentaye

    It would seem black heterosexuals would know better since they belabor racism and mistreatment ad nauseam. Then again, black cisgender/heterosexual people think they own the copyright, patent and trademark to oppression. That said, the black minority SHOULD BE held to a HIGHER STANDARD given they are STILL public enemy number one GLOBALLY. Yet, the most hated race in the world has the unmitigated gall to have it's OWN BRAND of hatred for gays? "All white follks aint bad, and all n_ggahz aint good".

  • IAmLawlessBrooks

  • Trentaye

    Go get shot by a white cop. Thanks.

  • Trentaye

    Um this would be the same door the black race has slammed in the face of black gay men for decades, right?
