Marlon Wayans has gone into full daddy mode defending 19-year-old daughter, Amai Zackary Wayans, against Internet trolls stomping on his daughter’s life choices.
The comedian posted a photo of his daughter rocking a pair of sneakers with rainbow-colored soles on Sunday (June 2), and captioned it, “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.”
Some followers were not too happy with Wayans support of his daughter’s sexuality. One IG user wrote, “Damn unfollow. Sad sh-t,” to which Marlon responded, “Bye!”
Another user addressed the actor’s post by saying, “She’s not old enough to understand what that’s really about. You have the power to change lives, Bro, don’t teach her that.”
Instead of going off, Marlon responded, “She’s 19. She’s who she is until or until she don’t choose different. Love her for her not what I want her to be.”
Engaging with followers posting on the photo, Wayans said he’s not deleting the hateful tweets because he wants to use this as a teachable moment.
“We all will some day get to unconditional love. Because of my daughter I am one step closer,” he added. “I am not God, i don’t judge i just LOVE. And still pray for the haters because i refuse to judge them too just love.”
