Marlon Wayans - Marlon Wayans Hit With Bizarre Twitter Lawsuit

Comedian Marlon Wayans is embroiled in a bizarre legal battle over a Twitter.com post with an actor who appeared in his Haunted House 2 movie.

Pierre Daniel, who was hired for a part in Wayans' horror film spoof sequel, filed legal documents in Los Angeles County Court on Monday (25Aug14) claiming the star used his image in a Twitter message last September (13).

Daniel alleges Wayans compared his photo to the titular character in animated series The Cleveland Show, claiming the post was "racially motivated and mocked his appearance".

In the lawsuit, obtained by Tmz.com, Daniel claims the Twitter mention caused him "shock, pain, discomfort and/or anxiety", and as a result, can no longer work as an actor.

He is suing Wayans and the movie's production company for unspecified damages. The comedian has yet to comment on the allegations.
