Terrence J Tells Marlon Wayans “I’m A Self-Made Millionaire”, Later Explains “It’s A Parody” After Backlash
Terrence J and Marlon Wayans appeared to be embroiled in the latest celebrity beef after an Instagram Live session between the two entertainers went viral. The conversation quickly escalated into an argument about nepotism, in which Terrence J insinuated that Marlon Wayans’ career wouldn’t exist without the help of his already-famous older brother, Keenen Ivory Wayans:
Read their heated conversation below:
“Terrence J: Let me school you on something-
Marlon Wayans: You ain’t gon’ school me on nothing. I’m a grown a** man.
Terrence: This ain’t all about your family. Your family can’t bail you out of this one.
Marlon: Let me tell you something about family: I don’t never need them to bail me out of nothing…you gon’ respect the tribe. Tell me another family that has done what we’ve done…you’re disrespecting the culture.
Terrence: Get off of Keenen Ivory Wayans’ lap for just two seconds…some of us have to make it on our own. That’s all I’m saying!
Marlon: N*gga, nah! Now you talkin’ crazy!”
Terrence J even went to the great lengths of barking as a nod to his fraternity to illustrate that he had to pursue an education to become successful:
“Bro, [I’m a] self-made millionaire! It’s called North Carolina A&T! Omega Psi Phi! [barks]”
Check out a few reactions to the drama.
Feeling the heat from the public – the former “106 & Park” host tweeted, explaining that the viral argument wasn’t a real beef, but a parody for an upcoming show:
“THE AWFUL TRUTH with me and Marlon is a COMEDY Parody show. NOT REAL. The segment is called “WHAT HATERS SAY.” New episode today. Please tell the ppl in the back.”
