It’s finally back and some audiences are asking what happened to Malik on House of Payne. Fortunately, fans have flocked to the actor’s defence.

Whether you love or hate him, there’s no denying that nobody does it quite like Tyler Perry.

The American multi-talent has given us plenty of entertainment to enjoy over the years but many fans will argue that it never got better than House of Payne.

This gem of a sitcom premiered back in 2006 and aired for an impressive eight seasons, even spawning a spin-off – The Paynes – which ran for 38 episodes.

Audiences couldn’t help but become so comfortable with the Payne family over the years and the series’ absence has been truly felt since it concluded airing.

Luckily, it has finally returned to screens for a ninth season and fans are already cherishing a TV event which many felt would never materialise.

What happened to Malik on House of Payne?

  • Larramie Doc Shaw has returned to reprise the role of Malik in House of Payne season 9 but audiences have expressed concerns with his appearance.

Sadly, there have been plenty of audiences on Twitter who have attempted to make negative comments about his appearance.

Additionally, some have made assumptions with no evidence to support their tweets.

Honestly, it’s just wonderful to see the actor back and enjoying his time as Malik once again.

It’s also nice to see so many flock to Twitter and address why it’s so important to refrain from attacking somebody’s appearance.

Nevertheless, it’s a shame that this still has to be acknowledged.

If you’re a fan and fancy following him on Instagram, we have good news!

You can find him over at @docshaw; he currently has 42.6k followers. However, there’s some bad news too.

He hasn’t posted since October 2019 so he’s essentially been inactive for just shy of a year.

Perhaps he’ll find the time to post soon, but if not, we’re happy to see him back in his iconic role all the same.
