Kim Zolciak Uses #MeToo Movement In Response To Marlon Wayans' 'White Chicks' Joke

Wait, what?

Reality personality Kim Zolciak took a joke by comedian Marlon Wayans to heart recently by trying to connect it to the #MeToo movement.

Zolciak, who was a featured character on Bravo's Real Housewives of Atlanta appeared on the reunion Sunday (Apr. 9) where plenty of people were watching, including Wayans. Because comedians enjoy making jokes, he decided to do so by comparing her look to one of his memorable films, 2004's White Chicks. "No we are not in production of White Chicks 2, The fu*k.?" he said on Instagram.

The reality star replied to Wayans' comment via TMZto which she brought up the #MeToo movement. "I think it's inappropriate that a grown a** man in this #MeToo movement is knocking a woman," she said. "It's gross." Her husband Kroy Biermann also attempted to discredit Wayans–who's currently the star of the NBC sitcom Marlon–by calling him irrelevant.

But the jokes continued to fly. Wayans cracked a few more jokes with TMZ as well. "It's social media and people go there just to comment," he said.He also admitted how he thought Kim was actually his brother Shawn in his White Chicks whiteface costume.

In the past, Zolciak has spoken about her love for lip fillers and how she also supported her 19-year-old daughter's decision to get the same treatment. “She was like, ‘I hate my lips, I hate my lips,’" she told Us Weekly.  So I’m like, then go fix them! You only go around this planet once. If it makes her happy, so be it.”

Plenty of folks took offense with Zolciak bringing the women's movement into the mix, including Wendy Williams. The talk show host questioned her motive during her show this week. "What does this have to do with the #MeToo movement, Kim?" she asked. "You're a housewife and he's a comedian and there was a funny screen grab. What are you saying the #MeToo movement? What does that mean? You can't say anything about women because of the #MeToo movement?"

She also mentioned how Zolciak's fillers aren't a new conversation. "I think people have been saying stuff about Kim and the fillers for a long time," Williams said. "You know what's funny, is [her husband, Kroy Biermann] has seemingly no say in how far she goes with the fillers. I'm not saying that men are the boss of us, but at some particular point a man is going to say, 'OK look, the first lips they were really nice they feel really good when I kiss you, but now they're going way too far and you've got our 19-year-old daughter involved.'"

Zolciak hasn't responded to Williams' hot take.

Kylie Jenner Doubles Down On Being Crowned A "Self Made" Billionaire

The premise of "self-made" and its interpretation when it comes to privileged celebrities has been a huge debate. When Kylie Jenner was named Forbes' youngest self-made billionaire, debates were raised due to her timeline in the limelight and her wealthy family. The 21-year-old defended her title, explaining how she doesn't fall into any ofter category.

"There’s really no other word to use other than self-made because that is the truth," she said in Q&A with Interview Magazine's German edition. "That is the category that I fall under," she started.

She acknowledged how her fan base equated to her success but refuted claims that she used her family's money to jump-start her wildly successful Kylie Cosmetics line.

"Although, I am a special case because before I started Kylie Cosmetics, I had a huge platform and lots of fans. I did not get money from my parents past the age of 15. I used 100 percent of my own money to start the company, not a dime in my bank account is inherited… and I am very proud of that."

Earlier this month (March 5) the mother-of-one officially surpassed Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest person to reach billionaire status, when Kylie Cosmetics hit a billion dollars in revenue.
