Not impressed: Marlon Wayans captured Delta Goodrem dancing at a Jay Z and Beyonce concert. Photo: Instagram
Apparently, Delta Goodrem can’t dance.
That’s according to the actor, Marlon Wayans, who is most famous for his role in 2004’s buddy-cop film, White Chicks.
The pair happened to be cavorting next to each other on Monday night as Beyonce and Jay Z brought the house down in Pasadena, Los Angeles. A couple of nights earlier a man's figertip was bitten off during the married couple's concert.
As Goodrem busted out some hands in the air, teenager-at-a-Miley-Cyrus-concert vibes, Wayans took the snap that could throw doubts on Goodrem’s considerable dancing ability.
“Man I got the most UNRHYTHMIC WHITE WOMAN dancing next to me at the jay and bay concert,” he said on Instagram.
“This bitch dancing to AC/DC.”
Marlon’s expression said it all, contempt, surprise and fear, all rolled into one sideways glance.
In the process he managed to dismiss two Australian music stars in Goodrem and AC/DC, and ignited the ire of his social media followers.
Wayans is the 42-year-old star of the Scary Movie franchise and, with his brothers Keenen, Damon and Shawn, one of the "Wayans brothers".
Since publishing the image, it has been "liked" almost 24,000 times on Instagram and gone "viral" on the internet, picked up by news outlets around the world.
@MarlonWayans Absolutely NO reason why you should feel good about putting someone down. Little do you know, she is an Australian treasure.— Lauren Rose Burke (@LaurenRoseBurke) August 4, 2014
.@MarlonWayans Ha! White women be dancin' like they ain't hear no song! Black comedian be publicly humiliating woman for sport. Reflect.— Jack of All Trades ツ (@BrendanMcInnis) August 4, 2014
Wayans has pumped out some pretty interesting dance moves in the past himself.
Favourites include “the baseball” and the “home-run,” from this late 1990s skit in The Wayans Bros.
While White Chicks was a commercial success for the four Wayans brothers, it got panned by critics.
The Chicago Sun Times film critic Richard Roeper rated it the worst firm of 2004 and criticised it for its racist undertones. While also noting its average use of prosthetics.
"When they did the make up, they should have gone onto the set and said guess what everyone, go home, we don't have a movie," he said in 2004.
Despite the apparently spontaneous nature of Wayans' photo, it does appear as though Goodrem and Wayans are aware of each other's existence.
They follow each other on Instagram.
