Marlon Wayans Feels Films Like ‘White Chicks’ Are Needed But Likely Won’t Fly

The actor feels that in today’s climate, the comedy would get censored.

If you ever thought a White Chicks sequel would come to fruition, Marlon Wayans shares he doesn’t see it coming due to censorship in today’s time, according to Buzzfeed.

“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,” he told the outlet.

“If a joke is gonna get me canceled, thank you for doing me that favor. It's sad that society is in this place where we can't laugh anymore. I ain't listening to this damn generation. I ain't listening to these folks: These scared-ass people, these scared executives. Y'all do what you want to do? Great. I'm still gonna tell my jokes the way I tell them. And if you want to make some money,  jump on board. And if not, then I'll find a way to do it myself. I know my audience. My audience comes to my shows every weekend, and they leave feeling great and laughing. One thing about the Wayans, we've always told the worst joke the best way.”

In a separate interview with Entertainment Weekly back in 2020, the comedian shared he would “love” to do a sequel and shared what makes the film a cult classic.

“You know who loves White Chicks the most? White chicks. That’s how you know it’s a good movie,” he expressed.

“For us, I think a good joke in comedy is when the people you make fun of laugh the loudest. And what’s beautiful is that we’re equal-opportunity offenders. It was a great exploration of gender, of race, of pop culture, and done with kid gloves so everybody could laugh. And I think that’s what makes it a cult classic to this day.”
