Boosie Badazz Criticizes Dwyane Wade’s Support for Transgender Daughter

Boosie Badazz is speaking out following Dwyane Wade’s public support for his 12-year-old child Zaya, who recently revealed she identifies as female.

“Me and my wife–my wife Gabrielle Union–we are proud parents of a child in the LGBTQ+ community, and we’re proud allies, as well,” the retired NBA star said during an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” last week.

While the family has rallied around Zaya, Boosie has decided to publicly criticize Wade for supporting his child, whom he shares with ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches. Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, the Baton Rouge rapper addressed Wade during his rant.

“I gotta say something about this shit, bro. Dwyane Wade, you gone too fucking far, dawg,” said Boosie. “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 shit figured out yet. He might meet a woman, anything, at 16 and fall in love with her. But his dick be gone–how he gon’–like, bruh, you going too far, dawg.”

He continued to share more transphobic thoughts. “Don’t cut his dick off, bruh. Like, bruh, for real, if he gon’ be gay, let him be gay,” Boosie added. “But don’t cut his dick off. Like don’t address him as a woman, dawg. He’s 12 years old. He’s not up there yet. He hasn’t made his final decisions yet. Don’t cut his fucking dick off, Dwyane Wade, bruh. You fucking trippin’, dawg.”

As Complex points out, Wade did not say whether Zaya was receiving gender reassignment surgery, only that she wishes to use she/her pronouns.

“As parents, we put our hopes and we put our fears on our kids,” Wade told Robin Roberts on “GMA.” “With Zaya, we decided to listen to her. And she’s walking us on the journey.”

Boosie has been outspoken with his controversial views. He recently called out Gayle King for bringing up Kobe Bryant’s rape case during her interview with former WNBA champion Lisa Leslie.

Twitter Is Confused By Young Thug’s Take On Dwyane Wade’s Transgender Child

Dwyane Wade’s recent interview with Good Morning America stirred up plenty of controversy after the retired NBA star opened up about his transgender child. He explained to GMA‘s Robin Roberts his son, born Zion Wade, knew at 3 years old that he didn’t feel right in his own skin.

So he ultimately began living as Zaya Wade and asking to be referred to by the appropriate female pronouns. After Boosie Badazz expressed his horror at the thought of gender reassignment surgery on a young child, Young Thug has thrown in his own two cents.

“All I wanna say to dwade son is ‘GOD DONT MAKE MISTAKES,’ he tweeted. “but hey live your true self.”

Thugger added, “You’re gods best Creation,” insinuating a woman or a man is made the way god intended them to be made.

People were quick to point out Thug is the same artist who donned a dress for the 2016 album Jeffery. He’s also been rumored to be gay for years, so his perceived negative attitude toward Zaya Wade has led to confusion.

Boosie Badazz Gets Trounced On Twitter Over Zaya Wade Comments

The ever outspoken Boosie Badazz didn’t gain many new fans on Tuesday (February 18) when he decided to speak his mind on Dwyane Wade’s 12-year-old transgender daughter, Zaya.

Following the retired NBA legend’s recent Good Morning America interview where he and his family further hammered home their support of Zaya, a visibly frustrated Boosie appeared to halt his gym workout to vent on Instagram.

“I gotta say something about this shit,” he fumed. “Dwyane Wade, you’ve gone too fucking far, bro. That is a male. A 12-year-old. At 12, they don’t even know what they next meal gonna be. They don’t have shit figured out yet. He might meet a woman at 16 and fall in love with her, but his dick be gone.”

Fans have grown accustomed to Boosie’s rallying against LGBTQ matters and judging from his name taking the top trending topics spot on Twitter as of press time, a great deal of them are sick of his slanted commentary.

Hundreds of outraged social media users immediately took to Twitter to protest after his video went viral. Check out a handful of them below.

Last week, Dwyane Wade appeared on Ellen where he discussed Zaya’s decision to come out as a transgender girl, explaining that he and his wife are fully supportive their child. Boosie Badazz, who’s previously made harsh criticisms towards the LGBTQ+ community, went f on a full-blown rant on Instagram where he claimed the famed NBA player had “gone too f*cking far.”

“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 shit figured out yet. He might meet a woman, anything, at 16 and fall in love with her. But his dick be gone — how he gon’ — like, bruh, you going too far, dawg,” he said. At this point, it should be boldly noted that there hasn’t been a single mention Zaya undergoing any reassignment surgeries. Wade and Union simply stated Zaya would prefer she/her pronouns. 

“Like bruh, if he gay, let him be gay,” Boosie continued. “Like don’t address him as a woman, dawg. He’s 12-years-old. dawg. He’s — he’s not there yet. He hasn’t made his final decisions yet. Don’t cut his f*ckin dick f, Dwyane Wade, bruh. You f*ckin’ trippin’, dawg. You trippin’ dawg.”

The rapper, who is no stranger to backlash from members the LGBTQ+ community and their allies, drove his apparent point home in the caption the video. “IM GO SAY IT SINCE THIS PUSSY ASS WORLD AINT GO SAY SHIT‼️ U TRIPPIN N***A #period,” he said. Boosie has previously made harsh criticisms towards the LGBTQ+ community, even making light Lil Nas X’s decision to come out as gay.

During Dwyane Wade’s appearance on Ellen, the famed NBA legend explained that he and his wife are proud their child for living her truth. “First all me and my wife, Gabrielle Union, we are proud parents a child in the LGBTQ+ community and we’re allies as well,” he said. “We take our roles and responsibilities as parents very seriously.”

Earlier today, he appeared on Today where he discussed a moment in his recently released documentary that delves into the topic Zaya’s gender identity. He explained that initially, he wasn’t sure how much the subject he wanted to discuss because the possible backlash (i.e. Boosie) his family would receive.

“I struggled on how much I wanted to talk about it in the doc,” Wade said. “I actually didn’t talk about it a lot, but I knew if I put it in the doc at all, it would be a big conversation…We struggled with what people would say about a 12-year-old making a decision about her life. But we also know our child.”

Even though there are critics like the Baton Rouge rapper who make ill-informed comments on the Internet, Wade knew that this story would help other families who might be going through the same thing. 

Boosie Badazz Goes In On Dwyane Wade Over His 12-Year-Old Transgender Child

Dwyane Wade opened up about his 12-year-old child’s transgender journey during a recent interview with Good Morning America — and evidently Boosie Badazz couldn’t help himself from weighing in.

The retired NBA star sat down with GMA‘s Robin Roberts on Tuesday (February 18) and explained, “She [Zaya] is our leader. I think when the conversation we had — the one thing about it, for parents, is have conversations with your kids. Zaya, early on, knew two things. She knew straight and she knew gay. But Zaya started doing more research.

“She is the one who sat down with us as a family and said, ‘Hey, I don’t think I’m gay.’ And she went down the list. ‘This is how I identify myself, this is my gender identity, I identify myself as a young lady. I think I’m a straight trans because I like boys.’ So it was a process for us to sit down with our daughter and find out who she is and what she likes, and not put something on her.”

Boosie quickly headed to Instagram to express his apparent disgust, making it abundantly clear where he stands on the issue.

“I gotta say something about this shit,” he begins in the video. “Dwyane Wade, you’ve gone too fucking far, bro. That is a male. A 12-year-old. At 12, they don’t even know what they next meal gonna be. They don’t have shit figured out yet. He might meet a woman at 16 and fall in love with her, but his dick be gone.

“How you gonna … like, bro, you going to too far, dawg. Don’t cut his dick off, bro. Like, bro, for real. If he gonna be gay, let him be gay, but don’t cut his dick off, bro. Don’t address him as a woman, dawg. He’s 12 years old. He’s not up there yet. He hasn’t made his final decisions yet. Don’t cut his fucking dick off Dwyane Wade. You fuckin’ trippin, dawg.”

On the contrary, Wade said Zaya (born Zion) has questioned her gender identity for a long time.

“She’s known it for nine years,” Wade told Roberts. “She’s known since she was 3 years old. Along this way we’ve asked questions and we’ve learned. But she’s known. I knew early on that I had to check myself. That’s what I knew. I knew early on that I had to ask myself questions.

“I’ve been a person in a locker room that has been a part of the conversation that has said the wrong phrases and the wrong words myself. As I got older and I watched my daughter grow, I had to go and look at myself in the mirror and say, ‘Who are you? What are you going to do if your child comes home and says, ‘Dad, I’m not a boy … I’m a trans girl.’ What are you going to do?’ That was my moment of real.”

O.J. Simpson Rehashes Past Problems With Gayle King Amid Kobe Bryant Controversy

While the intensity  the controversy surrounding Gayle King’s recent interview with Lisa Leslie is dying down a bit, O.J. Simpson chiming in with his two cents it’s worth taking into consideration for a moment. To recap the controversy, King has been receiving heavy criticism for asking Leslie about whether Kobe Bryant’s past rape allegations leave a stain on his legacy. 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg and Boosie Badazz all publicly denounced King for bringing this up so soon after Bryant’s passing. Oprah, who is a close friend the CBS This Morning host, detailed that King was struggling with all the backlash and had to increase her security due to violent threats. 

O.J. Simpson has made a habit sharing selfie videos on social media, speaking his mind on whatever topic he so pleases. With the King story taking over the news, O.J. recalled his past issues with her. “I’m not the most objective guy when it comes to Gayle King,” he said. “Two years back on national TV that she made a comment that it was inappropriate for me to be visiting my ex-wife’s grave, something that my family and friends have done for years on birthdays, Christmas and special occasions — something that’s none her business and I couldn’t understand why she felt the need to make that comment on national TV.”

The Juice then got into why he disapproves what King did during the Leslie interview. “The other thing is this Kobe Bryant, Gayle King thing. I know this thing about Kobe, she’s going to claim ‘journalistic integrity.’ A whole lot people that have journalistic integrity didn’t feel that this was the right time to do that. There will be plenty time in the future to bring up all aspects Kobe’s life. Right now we should be celebrating the greatness Kobe and his family. God bless Kobe and his family. I’m just sayin, take care.”

Oprah Winfrey addressed this during a recent interview on Today, revealing that the death threats have put Gayle in a bad place. “She is not doing well,” Winfrey said tearfully. “She is not doing well because she now has death threats and has to now travel with security. She is feeling very much attacked.”

Gayle King recently aired out her displeasure for the interview, calling out CBS for baiting the situation with the promo clip when, in fact, they did a wide-ranging interview covering a variety topics. King said that the clip, in particular, was taken out context. According to TMZ, even some her own staffers said that the interview itself actually painted Kobe in a great light. A rep for CBS said that they did fail Gayle in this situation. “Gayle conducted a thoughtful, wide-ranging interview with Lisa Leslie about the legacy Kobe Bryant. An excerpt was posted that did not reflect the nature and tone the full interview. We are addressing the internal process that led to this and changes have already been made,” the rep said.

Boosie Badazz wants to see the NBA make Kobe Bryant the new logo for the league.

Following the shocking death of the former Los Angeles Lakers star, Boosie called on the NBA to switch its longtime logo featuring a silhouette of Basketball Hall of Famer Jerry West to a version sporting Bryant’s likeness.

“It’s only right that the NBA take Jerry West off the logo and put Kobe Bryant on the logo,” he said in an Instagram video. “That’s only right, man. Fuck that. You gotta put Kobe Bryant on the NBA logo, man. This shit sad, man.”

Boosie added, “HOW I FEEL FUCK DAT #ripkobe PUT HIM ON THE NBA LOGO NOW #petitionthisshit,” in the post’s caption.

Bryant, along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven other passengers, passed away in a fatal helicopter crash on Sunday (January 26). The group was en route to a youth basketball tournament at the Mamba Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks, California.

In an interview with ABC News, West detailed how he acted like a “surrogate father” to the late NBA star when Bryant began his pro career straight out of high school. He also shared how deeply the loss of Bryant affected him.
