Comedy legend Marlon Waynes has responded to the homophobic bigots upset with his heartwarming Pride Month post. Back in November 2023, the Scary Movie star first opened up about his connection to the LGBTQIA+ community when he revealed that his eldest child, Kai, was trans during an interview with The Breakfast Club.

As he discussed his comedy special Good Grief, Wayans shared that he was working on a new special that would follow his journey with Kai’s gender identity. “Skittles, or Rainbow Child, is about my daughter – I have a daughter that transitioned into a son,” said Wayans. “My daughter Amai is now Kai.

And so I talk about the transition. Not their transition, but my transition as a parent going from ignorance and denial to complete unconditional love and acceptance.” While the star said he was still coming to terms with using “they/them” pronouns, he added that Kai knows he “loves them.” “They see I’m trying… But I gotta respect their wishes, right?

And as a parent, I just want my kids to be free. I want them to be free in spirit, free in thought. Free to be themselves,” he explained.
