Marlon Wayans Claims Wrong Person Targeted in Home Burglary

Marlon Wayans Claims Wrong Person Targeted in Home Burglary

Marlon Wayans is speaking out about a recent burglary at his Los Angeles home, making it clear that the thieves targeted the wrong person. In an Instagram video posted on Thursday, the comedian and actor, known for his roles in “White Chicks” and “Scary Movie,” addressed the incident with a mix of humor and frustration.

Wayans began by thanking everyone who reached out to check on him after news of the burglary broke. He assured his followers that he and his family are fine, but he had a message for the burglars: they didn’t get much because he doesn’t own much of value. “The most valuable thing in my house is my house. So, unless you’re gonna put that [expletive] on a truck and drag it away, then, yeah, man, you did well, but I don’t own [expletive],” Wayans said in the video.

According to LAPD officials who spoke to TMZ, the burglary occurred on June 29 around 2:30 a.m. Wayans was not home at the time, but his older brother, Keenen Ivory Wayans, was. The suspects reportedly entered the house by sneaking into the backyard and shattering a window. Keenen, who was asleep during the incident, woke up after hearing some noise but didn’t realize what was happening and went back to sleep.

In his Instagram post, Wayans advised the thieves to “save your energy” when targeting his home. He explained that he lives a simple life with two cats and a 1994 Range Rover that would need a jumpstart to steal because its battery is dead. “I don’t have a bunch of cash or jewelry,” he added. “Robbers don’t waste your energy or your life doing home invasions.”

Wayans’ humorous yet poignant message continued in the caption of his post. “God is so Good. Everyone is fine. I’m grateful,” he wrote. “Dear ROBBERS and OTHERS, I am the WRONG [expletive] to ROB. Save your energy. I don’t have anything valuable in my house except MY HOUSE.”

He reiterated that he doesn’t own anything flashy or valuable, emphasizing that potential robbers would be wasting their time. “I repeat: I don’t own [expletive] valuable. Please pick a better [target emoji] thank you and love you… still,” he concluded.

The news of the burglary first surfaced on Thursday when TMZ reported that Wayans’ home was the latest target in a series of burglaries in the area. One of Wayans’ staffers discovered the break-in the following morning, finding the house ransacked. The thieves reportedly took a safe and several thousand dollars in cash. Despite the police launching an investigation, no arrests have been made so far.

Wayans joins a growing list of celebrities in Los Angeles who have been targeted by burglars recently. Other victims include “Squid Game” star Lee Byung-hun, NBA star Paul Pierce, former Clippers player Patrick Patterson, and Kyle Richards’ daughter Farrah.

This isn’t the first time Wayans has taken to social media to address incidents in his life. Last year, he had a public dispute 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 argument and a citation for disturbing the peace. The case was later dismissed by a Colorado judge.

In his latest Instagram video, Wayans reiterated his point that his home is not full of valuables. “I want you to know that they didn’t really get much, ’cause I don’t own [expletive],” he said. “The most valuable thing in my house is my house. So unless you were gonna put that [expletive] on a truck and drag it away, then you did well. But I don’t own [expletive] – I use cards… I don’t have cash… I’m the wrong [expletive] to rob – go down the block… there’s a lot of flashy [expletive] out there.”

Despite the burglary, Wayans remains in good spirits and continues to find humor in the situation. His message to the burglars and potential future robbers is clear: he’s not the right target. “Robbers don’t waste your energy or your life doing home invasions, [expletive] is too heavy!!! You want to carry all that [expletive]? Throw your back out, and for what?!”

Wayans’ $5.3 million farmhouse, located in the celebrity enclave of Encino’s Amestoy Estates, was the latest target of burglars last Saturday. While the police investigation continues, Wayans’ humorous and candid response serves as a reminder that sometimes, even in the face of adversity, it’s important to keep a sense of humor.
