Boosie Gets Torched For His Commentary On Dwyane Wade’s Transgender Daughter, Zaya Wade

The ever outspoken Boosie Badazz seem to have gotten on the wrong side of fans and critics alike after posting a transphobic video which was directed at Dwyane Wade’s 12-year-old transgender daughter, Zaya on his official Instagram handle on Tuesday (February 18).

Following a praise-worthy parental move from Dwyane Wade, the former NBA star who recently revealed to the world on The Ellen Degeneres Show that his 12-year-old child, Zaya (previously identified as Zion), now identifies herself as a transgender girl and wishes to be referred to with the female pronouns, she/her.

His wife, actress Gabrielle Union, also took to social media where she expressed her support for Zaya living freely and openly in her truth. Wade’s oldest child, Zaire Wade, also chimed in social media with his support for Zaya. While Dwyane and Gabrielle’s open-minded parenting approach has mostly been met with praise, there has been a vocal minority reproachful of their choice, and  Boosie appear to be one of those few. 

In a recent Instagram video, Boosie halted his gym workout to  criticize Dwyane’s parenting choice in a wildly transphobic rant. “I gotta say something about this s**t, bruh,” Boosie begins before he targets his next words toward D. Wade, telling the former Miami Heat point guard that he’s”gon’ too f**king far.”

He further stressed that Zaya is too young to make professional choices and Dwayne shouldn’t let her determine her own sexuality and repeatedly misgendered Zaya throughout the entire video. Citing that Zaya’s young age deems her unable to make personal judgements and decisions, Boosie argued that D. Wade’s decision was detrimental to her future. Conflating gender identity with sexuality, Boosie also warned against allowing Zaya to undergo gender reassignment surgery as well. But as Twitter pointed out, Dwyane nor Gabby have yet to mention anything regarding Zaya undergoing such a procedure. 

Thus, the Internet swiftly jumped to Zaya’s defense and shut down Boosie’s disgraceful tirade. In the process, many reminded him of a rather questionable parental decision that he made as of recent, too.

Boosie is the same man who said he wanted a grown woman to have sex with his fourteen-year-old son.

I think DWade is good in parenting advice from him.
