"Marlon Brando used to go cha-cha dancing with us. He could dance his ass off. He was the most charming motherf***er you ever met. He’d f**k anything. Anything! He’d f**k a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye."
Meanwhile, a day later, Paul tweeted on 8 February 2018 hitting on Quincy's comment, where he said:
"Day 8 of the 28 day challenge is a legendary trio, my friend Richard Pryor, the great Marlon Brando, geniuses Marvin Gaye and Baldwin, getting too many calls from irrelevant, sick n thirsty gravediggers who'll do/sell anything for a dime or relevance."
However, Richard's widow, Jennifer Lee confirmed on the producer's revelation and said that the comedian wouldn't have any issues with Quincy's confession as he would laugh about it.
