Marlon Wayans has been making fans laugh for more than two decades in stand-up comedy and iconic movies such as White Chicks. While trying to adapt to present times, he has started a new dialogue on “cancel culture.”
Comedian and actor Marlon Wayans recently gave his two cents on “cancel culture.”
In an article by Deadline, Marlon said that movies like 2004’s White Chicks are needed today. Marlon added that movies without political correctness should be more accepted.
“I think they’re needed. I don’t know what planet we’re on, where you think people don’t need laughter, and that people need to be censored and canceled,” Marlon said.
However, the comedian is not afraid of possible backlash from fans and responded bluntly:
“It’s sad that society is in this palace where we can’t laugh anymore. I ain’t listening to this damn generation”, Marlon said.
Another celebrity that has called out cancel culture is Joey Bada$$. The Brooklyn rapper stood up for singer Lizzo when fans attempted to cancel her over allegedly using an ableist slur in her song “GRRRLS.” Joey responded by calling the younger generation “soft” in a tweet.
Beyoncè Faces Backlash Over Ableist Slur in Single On Renaissance
In July, Beyoncè dropped her highly anticipated album Renaissance, but faced criticism from disabled advocates for using an ableist slur.
In the song “Heated,” Yoncè says, “spazzing on that ass, spazz on that ass.”
Fans on Twitter were on both sides, either upset with the “Cuff It” singer or disagreeing that the word was derogatory.
