Kim Zolciak Slams Marlon Wayans for Hurtful “White Chicks” Joke

Marlon Wayans made a joke at Kim Zolciak’s expense.

She hit back at him in the comments.

Is this mean, is this funny, or is it … both?

So, The Real Housewives of Atlanta had its reunion special. As usual, there was drama.

This time, as NeNe Leakes had previously hinted, Kim was at the center of a vortex of criticisms from various Housewives.

(All of this despite having been reduced to a mere Friend of the Housewives!)

You know how sometimes makeup and lighting and a facial expression can have a really unflattering effect on an otherwise attractive person?

There may have been some of that going on with Kim’s look.

And Marlon Wayans could not resist making this joke.

Kim Zolciak, White Chicks

Coupled with a less-than-flattering screenshot of Kim Zolciak from the Reunion Special, he wrote:

“No we are not in production on White Chicks 2. The f–k?!”

White Chicks, of course, was a widely lampooned 2004 comedy about two black male FBI agents who go undercover … as white women.

Part of the running joke for that film was that the two men did not look convincing in their disguises.

The effect of the makeup on their faces made them look more like horrifying androids. There were some uncanny valley elements to their look.

As you can see in this image:

White Chicks

Obviously, comparing an actual white woman to White Chicks was very unkind.

And the 39-year-old reality star thought so, too.

Kim took the comments to share her displeasure with Marlon, writing:

“Was always a super big fan of yours and my kids loved you.”

She continues, and shows a bit of vulnerability.

“This hurts but I guess its all for laughs.”

“You should hope & pray that one day a grown man never takes this kind of dig at the expense of your daughter,” Kim concluded.

That’s sort of odd to say, since his joke didn’t target one of Kim’s daughters, but Kim herself.

“Grow up dude”

It can be easy to forget that reality stars are real people with real feelings.

Kim’s lips may be fake, but her heart is 100% organic.

A celebrity like Marlon Wayans should know that celebrities can see and be saddened by cruel things posted to social media. Especially if the one doing the posting is also a celebrity.

It was, to be clear, a bad photo.

Was Marlon being awful by posting it?

Or does Kim’s status as a reality star and the fact that the image is real and undoctored make it fair game?

Different people will have different opinions, of course.

But it looks like Marlon is standing by his joke. Because that post is, as of Monday afternoon, still up.

It should be of no surprise to anyone following Kim’s feud with NeNe Leakes to learn that NeNe found the post hilarious, and replied with a number of emojis to express that.

One imagines that NeNe would be less amused if Marlon had decided to make a joke at her expense.

But that would be true of most people.


Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann, Marlon Wayans ‘White Chicks’ Joke is Disgusting

Kim Zolciak and hubby Kroy Biermann fired the heavy artillery at Marlon Wayans … calling him a p***y and thoroughly unfunny for suggesting Kim was the poster girl for “White Chicks 2.” Wayans came under heavy fire over the weekend after…


Arie Luyendyk and Lauren Burnham: Utterly Destroyed for April Fool’s Pregnancy Joke!

Note to Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham:

There are appropriate April Fool’s Day jokes to make regarding pregnancy…

… and there are inappropriate April Fool’s Day jokes to make regarding pregnancy.

Next time, ask The Hollywood Gossip for advice, okay?

On Sunday, the most controversial Bachelor-based couple of all-time stepped in scalding hot water when it joked that Burnham was expecting.

It wasn’t just a mere, passing joke, either.

It can replete with an alleged baby bump photo and everything.

“Secrets finally out, we have a bunny in the oven! @laurenburnham91,” Arie wrote on Twitter alongside an image of a female, presumed to be his fiancee, clutching what looked like a baby bump.

See for yourself here:

Not even two hours later, however, Arie let followers in on his unoriginal joke.

APRIL FOOLS, he quickly Tweeted, barely even giving the prank time to go viral.


But it went viral enough, apparently, because plenty of Internet users found it incredibly offensive and insensitive — and they let Arie and Lauren have it online.

Big time.

“You both are disgusting,” wrote one individual, adding:

“As someone who struggles with fertility and would love nothing more than to have a baby this is so offensive.”

That was the basic theme of all the backlash; how Arie and Lauren turned a serious personal issue for millions of women into a source of parody.

“Come on. be better than that,” another person wrote, explaining herself thusly:

“it’s not a joke for many struggling families to get pregnant, it’s extremely expensive and it’s heartbreaking. I wish nothing but the best for Arie and Lauren but this is not funny, it’s cruel.”

Here’s a look at a few similar opinions shared on social media about this topic:

hating on Arie

Arie, of course, is no stranger to receiving hate over the Internet.

He selected a different woman from Lauren on the finale of The Bachelor this season, only to them dump her in the most dramatic fashion possible and then propose to Lauren a night after said finale aired.

It was bonkers!

And while some may think the reaction to their April Fool’s Day prank was a bit over-the-top, it’s understandable why so many people have simply had it with this couple.

They’d be best served to just remain silent for awhile.

Instead, they are in our face at all times with televised marriage talk and very bad jokes.

Nor do Arie and Lauren appear to be feel guilty about this distasteful Tweet, either.

Seemingly in response to the backlash, backlash, Arie shared the above photo of a recipe on his Instagram story and wrote;

“Sorry if you were offended, but we really are making a Dutch Baby.”

That’s just painfully insincere and even more painfully unfunny.

We wonder now how fans will react when Lauren really does get pregnant, a development she expects to happen at some point with her lame fiance.

“We’re both very excited about marriage and starting a family,” Burnham previously told People Magazine.

“If we get lucky, maybe we’d have twins!” Arie said in this same interview.

And if we get lucky, maybe we’ll never hear from Luyendyk again.


Ted Cruz Attempts to Appear Human With Simpsons Joke, Fails

Ralph Wiggum. The monorail episode. Steamed Hams. 

The Simpsons has given us so much over the course of its multi-decade run that it’s not surprising when someone makes an effort to piggyback on the show’s unprecedented success.

But it is surprising when someone botches the attempt as badly as Ted Cruz did today.

You might know Cruz from his failed bid for the GOP presidential nomination, or for his intriguing love of incest porn.

Either way, you’re probably aware that the Texas senator embodies awkward in a way that few human beings ever have.

So when Zodiac Ted attempted to appeal to the groovy youths with a reference to the hippest 26-year-old animated sitcom on TV, it predictably went about as smoothly as the time Homer ate those Guatemalan Insanity Peppers.

Appearing at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference today, Cruz attempted to explain the current political climate using an awkward analogy involving America’s favorite non-Obama family.

“The Democrats are the party of Lisa Simpson and Republicans are happily the party of Homer, Bart, Maggie and Marge,” Cruz told the assembled Chads and Ashleys.

Soooo … Democrats are the nation’s conscientious intellectuals and Republicans are its suckling infants?

No matter where you fall on the political spectrum we think you’ll agree that Ted’s analogy game could use some work.

The weird thing is, this is far from the first time that Cruz has referenced The Simpsons.

He claims to love the show, which makes his simplistic understanding of its characters all the more baffling.

Lisa is an egghead and the rest of the family is made up of red-blooded patriots?!

Take that Tracy Ullman-ass analysis back to 1989, homie.

Not surprisingly, some of the biggest talents behind the show’s success took issue with Ted’s interpretation of their work.

“Ted Cruz says Maggie Simpson would vote for him,” tweeted longtime showrunner Al Jean.

“I think Ted’s the one who could use a pacifier in his mouth.”

Jean added that Springfield’s most famous capitalist might have issued his final “fine mahok”:

“The way things are going even Mr. Burns is thinking of becoming a Democrat,” he wrote.

And Jean certainly wasn’t alone in his criticism of Cruz’s comments.

Many pointed out that The Simpsons savagely mocked the idea of a Trump presidency way back in 2000, which seems a fair indication that few of the show’s characters would be onboard with the present GOP agenda.

Tens of thousands went full Nelson Muntz on Cruz in the hours after his quote went public, but the most scathing burn may have come from longtime animator Anna Maltese:

“As a Simpsons animator for many years, I can say with 100% certainty that A) Lisa is officially the conscience of the family so…awesome.  B) Neither Marge nor Homer are Republicans,” Maltese tweeted bluntly.

We’re sure this isn’t as irritating to Cruz as having to continually deny that his dad killed JFK, but we’re guessing he’s not feeling particularly cromulent at the moment.
