A reality TV star and her husband have called out Marlon Wayans for a joke he made about her appearance on Instagram.

The comedian posted a photo of Real Housewives of Atlanta alumni Kim Zolciak and suggested she looks like he did in a film in which he wore comedic make-up and prosthetics to appear like a Caucasian female.

"No we are not in production on White Chicks 2. The f**k?" said Wayans in the post.

The post has garnered over 100,000 likes in less than 24 hours and has a lively comments section, with some fans enjoying the joke and others saying it went too far.

Zolciak herself waded into the debate, saying: "Was always a super big fan of yours and my kids loved you. This hurts, but I guess it's all for laughs."

Her husband, NFL player Kroy Biermann, also joined in and referenced Wayans' 17-year-old daughter, Amai.

"You should hope and pray that one day a grown man never takes this kind of dig at the expense of your daughter. Grow up dude," said Biermann.

Some hours later, Wayans posted a photo of himself on Instagram with the message: "Life. I have a warped perspective. It's just the way I see things."
