Marlon Wayans Sends A Message Of Support To His Daughter Amai During Pride: ‘I Wouldn’t Change One Thing About You’
@marlonwayans

Marlon Wayans just won the proud dad award with this supportive and heartfelt message to his 19-year-old daughter Amai.

The actor and comedian posted an Instagram photo of his teenager rocking a pair of Pride-themed Vans with a rainbow sole. In the caption, he sent a message of support and unwavering love, writing, “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.”

Sadly, Wayans’s support of his openly gay daughter was met with as much criticism as it was applause. One follower challenged his post, saying, “She’s not old enough to understand what that’s really all about,. You have the power to change lives, Bro. Don’t teach her that.” Wayans responded, saying, “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.”

Anyone who has been following Wayans for a while knows that his love for his children is knows no bounds. The comedian, who also has a 17-year-old son named Shawn, shared a birthday message to Amai just days prior. “You’re heaven sent. An amazing child. A kind human. A soul any and every parent would be proud to have as a daughter,” he wrote. “You a strong-minded and have always been. I tried to make you a righty you said “no nigga LEFT”. I tried to steer you straight you said “no nigga gay”. I tried demand things to be my way and you said “why”? You stood up to optimal authority, you questioned it, you challenged it and you defeated it. Thank you for that.”

Happy birthday to my pride, my heart, my love, my soul, my mini me, my inspiration, my moral compass, my sweet loving, romantic, kind hearted, intelligent, talented, soulful, conscious, angelic, beautiful daughter. I have loved you before you were even here. I rubbed you in your mommy’s belly, i read to you, i talked to you, i kissed you, i cuddled you, i loved you. I remember your head crowned all i saw was a full head of black curly hair and i began to cry like a baby. May 24, 2000, i pulled you from your mother’s womb, i held you in my arms and my world changed. My purpose shifted. I no longer lived for me… i lived for you, for my family, for us. You gave me purpose. You made me tender, you made me communicate, you made me humble, you made me attentive, you made me listen, you made me grow up. Your mere presence turned an arrogant boy into a humble man. You instantly shattered my hardcore and your mommy helped melt it away. Ask your mom you and that boy made me better. Without trying you did. You’re heaven sent. An amazing child. A kind human. A soul any and every parent would be proud to have as a daughter. You a strong minded and have always been. I tried to make you a righty you said “no nigga LEFT”. I tried to steer you straight you said “no nigga gay”. I tried demand things to be my way and you said “why”? You stood up to optimal authority, you questioned it, you challenged it and you defeated it. Thank you for that. Thank you for making me accountable for my actions. Thank u for sticking up for your brother. Once again you grew me. You changed my perspective. You made me love unconditionally and most of all you accept and love me unconditionally for all my flaws. When i am hurting for some reason you are usually present to tap them long soft fingers on my back and “it’s okay Dad”. I feel so strong to be able to be vulnerable in the presence of strong women who uplift me. Thank u for being one of those women. I can’t be no more proud of you than i already am. Never change. Just keep evolving. And know that wherever u are somebody loves u to the moon and back 4 2 4evers X infinity + 1 day… dad
