Ah, Delta. She’s Australia’s sweetheart! She was born to try! But unfortunately, according to White Chicks star Marlon Wayans, she didn’t quite succeed when it came to dancing while in the audience of Beyonce and Jay-Z’s 2014 On The Run tour. Without knowing that Delta is super famous down under, the actor and comedian publicly dragged the songstress, saying that it looked like she was “dancing to AC/DC”. We still love you, Delta!
