Marlon Wayans Outraged Over Houston’s Arrests; Tiny Harris, Not So Much [Watch]

*Marlon Wayans has expressed his outrage over the arrest of 3 women at a Houston’s restaurant in Atlanta, telling TMZ that you don’t have to be black to rise up and take action because if you don’t, it’s only a matter of time before something similar happens to you.

In case you missed it, 3 women were arrested at the eatery after a security guard dragged them out of the women’s restroom.

Marlon doesn’t think this is a black issue … it’s an issue of human decency.

He explained to TMZ’s paps that folks shouldn’t be so quick to turn a blind eye to what he believes is a human rights violation.

Scroll up to watch the clip above, and below is a clip of the women being “violated” inside Houston’s.

In related news, T.I.’s wife, Tiny Harris, doesn’t carry the same outrage over the incident as her husband does.

TMZ caught up with Tiny Tuesday at The Grove in West Hollywood and she definitely feels the security guard crossed the line when he dragged the women out of the bathroom, but she doesn’t think it was racially motivated since the guard appeared to be black.

Check out what he had to say about the issue via the clip below:

Tiny believes the security guard should be reprimanded for manhandling the ladies and nothing more.

Do you agree or disagree?

One of the 3 women hauled out of Houston’s says the restaurant is lying with its claim the women ignored warnings to leave before security was called.

In the clip above, Asia’h Epperson — an actress and former “American Idol” contestant — told TMZ she was shocked that police arrested her and her friends, instead of the guard. She’s the one who shot video of the assault … which now has T.I. ready to take action.

Epperson says a staffer gladly let them use the restroom and never asked them to leave prior to the violent incident.

As expected, Asia’h has lawyered-up, and she also reacted to T.I. saying he wants to shut down the whole chain.
