Marlon Wayans isn't worried about the haters in his comments.

Marlon Wayans isn't phased by the haters in his comments on Instagram over the support he's been showing for his son, Kai, during Pride Month. When he first shared a picture of himself with a Pride flag on the platform, several users criticized him in response. Tuesday morning, posing in a tub of rainbow-colored balls, he added: “Looking at my comments… i don’t think the haters got my message… HAPPY F*CKNG PRiDE BITCHES!!! I ain’t God so I don’t judge, I’m father, a friend and a damn loving human so i exercise my right to LOVE.”

Users continued to have mixed responses to the support for the LGBTQ+ community. One top comment comes from a user claiming they'll never watch another one of his movies. Others voiced support for him continuing to speak up in the face of homophobic backlash.

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. Some of y’all funny. I’m a troll. I’ll post all day. HAPPY PRIDE to all my friends, fam, fans and loved ones. I am happy you’re happy… period.” Wayans previously revealed that Kai came out as trans during an appearance on The Breakfast Club, last year.
