Stacey Dash has been taking it from all sides ever since her comments about abolishing the BET Awards, BET Networks and Black History Month. But she can count on at least one friend — besides Donald Trump — in her corner: her former Mo' Money co-star Marlon Wayans.
The 50 Shades of Black star and parody king talked to us about the drag-ation of his pal Stacey, and says the backlash hasn't been fair.
"I don't think it's fair to bash [Stacey]," he tells us in our exclusive interview. "When it comes to people, you just have to love them for who they are. Everybody is different. There's different kinds of Black people, and she's... different."
He continues, "I don't judge her. I don't agree with her at all, but I hear what she's trying to say. I mean, all your kids can't be pretty. Sometimes you're going to have the one with the bigger nose and the crossed eyes, but that's still your baby. I still love my crazy lil' child."
Watch Wayans stick up for his friend in our exclusive interview above, and click here to hear his thoughts on #OscarsSoWhite and getting snubbed by the Academy in 2000, when many felt he deserved a nomination.
Marlon's hilarious new parody, 50 Shades of Black, hits theaters tomorrow.
