Dwayne Wade took the high road in a recent interview. The basketball legend is the father to Zaya Wade, the trans teen quickly becoming a symbol for trans youth across America. Wade and his wife Gabrielle Union have receive a lot of support for the way they’ve embraced their daughter’s transition, but that has not stopped the naysayers for stepping forward with their opinions.
Zaya Wade is a star and I’m 1000% here for it!— CRYS (@TrulySongbird) March 5, 2021
Rapper Boosie Badazz has been very vocal about his feelings towards Wade and Union allowing Zaya to identify as trans. In several live streams and interviews, Boosie Badazz voiced his opinion on why he feels its a bad decision and how that the famous parents are setting up their daughter for failure.
“That is a male. A 12-year-old. At 12, they don’t even know what they next meal gon’ be. They don’t have it figured out yet. He might meet a woman, anything, at 16 and fall in love with her […] how he gon’… like, bruh, you going too far, dog.” Continuing, Boosie stated, “Like bruh, if he gay, let him be gay. Like don’t address him as a woman, dog. He’s 12-years-old, dog. He’s — he’s not there yet. He hasn’t made his final decisions yet.”
B2K member J-Boog also made his opinion public following Zaya’s interview with Michelle Obama. In the comments section of a Hollywood Unlocked post about the interview captioned “Michelle Obama praises Zaya Wade”, J-Boog unloaded on what he feels is a “demonic” display of men being turned into women and women becoming “more manly” everyday.
He went on to say. “This child shouldn’t be the front runner of the movement.” J-Boog feels like Zaya is being used to push an agenda onto to children. His full comment below.
Father Dwayne Wade made sure to make his feels very clear on these two men in a recent sit down with “I Am An Athlete” podcast. While he made sure to brand both Boosie Badazz and Boog “haters”, the proud father went on to thank them for sharing their opinion. Wade feels like the more people who chime in, the more the conversation continues, which ultimate benefits kids like his daughter Zaya because through the dialog will hopefully come some understanding.
