Marlon Wayans Defends Himself Via Twitter After Nonrhythmic White Woman Post

By  | 

Marlon Wayans has no filter and he doesn’t plan on changing that anytime soon.

During Sunday night’s On The Run Tour in Pasadena, the comedian posted a photo of himself poking fun at Australian singer, Delta Goodrem’s dance moves. Goodrem was sitting by A Haunted House star, but it was clear Wayans had no idea he was siting next to a Australian icon.

“Man I got the most UNRHYTHMIC WHITE WOMAN dancing next to me at the jay and bay concert … This b*tch dancing to AC/DC.”

Following Marlon’s post, he was slammed with comments criticizing him for his perceived racist remarks. On Monday, the comedian took to Twitter to defend himself against all the haters.

“I love that all these people calling me racist cuz I stated a fact. She can’t dance. Apparently neither can u. Now f*ck outta here,” he wrote in a series of tweets. “One day people are gonna understand… I simply don’t give fuck. And I refuse to succumb to this new world order if not having an opinion. All comedians, say what u say and let it be said. Never say sorry for a fact, just say f*ck off. Be you, be true.”

He then went on to repost the same image in black and white, writing:

“In Black and white … Still can’t dance. I’m gonna annoy u annoying sensitive a$$es with collages and repost of this for floodin’ my damn timeline all day.”

Fortunately, Delta has a great sense of humor and didn’t take Marlon’s comments to heart. The singer posted this hilarious Seinfeld clip on Twitter and captioned the clip:

“Had a blast last night.”

And we will go on record to say that Delta actually can dance. HipHollywood found this video of Delta at a HipHop class in Los Angeles. The star was breaking it down to Janet Jackson with Extra correspondent, Renee Bargh.

    Funny that his brother said he hates that kind of racial humor. It’s a stereotype and I bet Marlon wouldn’t find it funny if a comic made a black stereotype joke.

      It wasn’t a stereotype when he said it because he was standing next to her and she couldn’t dance. Like he said he stated a fact regardless of race. The white woman next to him at the Jay and Bey concert couldn’t dance. He was stating what he experienced.

      do you know what the word stereotype mean? it’s a fact that she can’t dance and she agreed so why are you so upset?

    So, in other words, Marlon doesn’t understand that the problem was in him pointing her out as being a white woman and not in him pointing out that she couldn’t dance.

    “I’m next to this woman who can’t dance” is totally different from “I’m next to this WHITE woman who can’t dance.”

    What a douche.
