Gabrielle Union Seemingly Responds To Boosie & Young Thug’s Criticism About D. Wade’s Trans Child Zaya

​ ​ ​ ​

Everyone has an opinion about Dwyane Wade’s trans child Zaya Wade and are openly speaking out about it. D. Wade’s wife Gabrielle Union has heard what’s being said and she’s responding. More inside….

Last week, retired NBA baller Dwyane Wade (above making NYC promo rounds) appeared on the “Ellen DeGeneres Show” as he's on the promo trail for his upcoming ESPN documentary, D. Wade: Life Unexpected. The doc will give viewers a rare glimpse into his private life and the way he and his family are supporting his daughter Zaya Wade, who recently came out as trans.

During the interview, the former Heat baller got candid about his 12-year-old trans child Zaya Wade (born Zion Wade) wanting to live his truth and wanting to be referenced as "she" and "her."

"Zaya, originally born Zion as a boy, came home and said, 'Hey, so I want to talk to you guys. I think going forward I'm ready to live my truth, and I want to be referenced as 'she' and 'her.' I would love for you guys to call me Zaya,'" D. Wade told Ellen on the show. "So internally, now it's our job to go out and get information, to reach out to every relationship that we have."

In a video posted to social media, D. Wade's wife Gabrielle Union shared a conversation between D. Wade and his daughter Zaya where she speaks about her gender identity and how "worth it" it is to live his truth verses hiding. Peep it below:

"Meet Zaya," Gabby wrote in the caption. "She's compassionate, loving, whip smart and we are so proud of her. It’s Ok to listen to, love & respect your children exactly as they are. Love and light good people."

Zaya's big brother Zaire Wade also showed support:

The news wasn't a total shock to some since the controversy initially started in December when the Wades shared a family photo that featured Zaya in a crop top and nails. 

On "Good Morning America," the 38-year-old father revealed Zaya knew her true self at the tender age of 3-years-old.

"Zaya started doing more research. She was the one that sat down with us as a family and said, 'Hey I don't think I'm gay.' And she went down the list and said this is how I identify myself -- I identify myself as a young lady," D. Wade told Robin Roberts. I think I'm a straight trans, because I like boys,'" he explained. "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 -- we decided to listen to her and she's leading us on this journey."

Peep the full interview below:

Following the interview, rapper Boosie (who is a father of eight) decided to weigh in on D. Wade's child via Instagram.


"I gotta say something about this here, bruh. Dwyane Wade you've gone too f*cking far," he said in an Instagram video. "That is a male, a 12-year-old. At 12 they don't even know what they next meal gone be. They don't have sh*t figured out yet. He might meet a woman at 16 and fall in love with her, but his d*ck be gone. Don't cut his d*ck off bruh. If gone be gay let him be gay, but don't cut his d*ck off, bruh. Don't address him as a woman, dawg. He's 12-years-old."

Yesterday, rapper Young Thug tweeted then deleted, "All I wanna say to dwade son is 'GOD DONT MAKE MISTAKES' but hey live your true self."

Then he posted:



"You’re gods best Creation," Thugga tweeted.

Comedian Lil Duval also weighed in:



Gabby has heard the noise and she decided to respond subliminally:

"Listen, I'm built for this. I see it all and I keep high steppin for ALL of us. My dreams, my fight, my spirit, my work is for us all. You can fight me, you can trash me, you can stand in my way... I will keep moving forward & still cover you in love and light," Gabby captioned a video of herselwf while getting her makeup done.

And that's that on that.
