Marlon Wayans Speaks Out: ‘I Was the Wrong Target’ After Home Burglary Incident

Marlon Wayans’ Home Invasion

Marlon Wayans, the renowned stand-up comedian and star of “White Chicks,” recently addressed a startling incident a burglary at his home in a candid Instagram video. Wayans, known for his simple lifestyle, humorously advised potential burglars to “pick a better target.”

In the video, Wayans stated, “The most valuable thing in my house is the house itself. Unless you’re planning to haul it away on a truck, you’re not going to find much of value here. I don’t own much.”

On June 29, suspects broke into Wayans’ home while he was out and his brother Keenen was present. Wayans later joked on Instagram that the intruders didn’t steal much and suggested they try elsewhere.

Wayans further lightened the mood by sharing a glimpse into his personal life. “I lead a humble lifestyle with my two feline companions and a vintage 1994 Range Rover,” he said. He jokingly added that anyone attempting to steal his car would need to jumpstart it due to a dead battery.

In a final quip, Wayans confirmed that he doesn’t keep a stash of cash or jewelry, further diminishing the potential spoils for any would-be thieves. His humorous and candid response has been well-received by fans, who continue to show their support in the comments.

Wayans concluded his post with a piece of advice, “Robbers, don’t waste your energy or your life doing home invasions.”

Wayans: No Stranger to Controversy

Wayans is known for addressing incidents in his life via social media. Last year, he found himself at odds with United Airlines over an incident at Denver International Airport. Wayans claimed a gate agent told him he had too many bags to board his flight, leading to an escalated argument and a citation.

In response to the incident, Keenen Ivory Wayans said, “Marlon has always been vocal about his experiences. It’s part of what makes him a great comedian. He turns these situations into teachable moments for all of us.”

An anonymous friend praised Marlon Wayans for using humor to highlight and demystify adverse incidents. United Airlines responded, and a Colorado judge dismissed the case in October.
