Boosie Badazz went to Instagram with his video message, which he endorsed: “IM GO SAY SINCE THIS P **** A ** WORLD AINT GO SAY S ****‼ ️ YOU TRIPPIN N **** # period.”
The latter: Rappers Boosie Badazz, 37, and Young Thug, 28, criticized Dwayne Wade, 38, via social media Wednesday for supporting his daughter Zaya, 12, in the midst of her revelation that she identifies as female
In the clip, the 37-year-old rapper also misrepresented Zaya, arguing that Zaya is too young to identify her gender.
“I have to say something about this, man – Dwyane Wade, you’ve gone too far, dawg,” Boosie said. “That’s a man. A 12 year old. At the age of 12 they do not even know what they will do next meal.
“They are not entirely suspicious. He can meet a woman at the age of 16 and fall in love with her. But his bastard has disappeared – how does he go – like, bruh, you’re going too far, dawg. “
Boosie, a resident of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, repeatedly pleaded for Wade to ban Zaya from undergoing potential surgical procedures.

Tweets live forever: Young Thug posted his opinion about the situation and later removed it
“Don’t cut it off, man,” he said. “Like, bruh, really, if he becomes gay, let him be gay. But don’t cut his dick, bruh. Don’t – and dress him like a woman, dawg. He is 12 years old.
“He’s not up there. He has not yet made his final decisions. Don’t cut off his damn dick, Dwyane Wade, bruh. You’re fucking tripping, dawg. “
The comments came about a week after Wade, who withdrew from the NBA last year after a 15-year career at Ellen about an important exchange with Zaya, his child from his marriage to Siohvaughn Funches.
“Zion, born a boy, came home and said,” Hey, so I want to talk to you. I think I’m ready to live my truth, “said 13-year-old All-Star.” I want to be referred to as “she” and “her.” I would like you to call me Zaya. “
Wade added: “When our child comes home with a question, when our child comes home with a problem, when our child comes home with something, it’s our job as parents to listen to it, to give them the best information we can , the best feedback we can – and that doesn’t change because it now involves sexuality. “
Advice: Boosie also advised Wade not to dress Zaya in feminine clothing
Parenting: Union went to Twitter on Tuesday with a clip of Dwayne and Zaya talking about life while driving a golf cart
Wade, who spent most of his career in the Miami Heat, said he and wife Gabrielle Union are “proud parents of a child in the LGBTQ + community and … also proud allies” who take their “role and responsibility” as parents very seriously. “
Wade said he and Union were focused on “trying to get as much information as we can to make sure we give our child the best chance of being her best self.”
Union went to Twitter last week with a clip from Dwayne and Zaya who talked about life while driving a golf cart.
She endorsed the shot: “Meet Zaya. She is compassionate, loving, whip smart and we are so proud of her. It is ok to listen to, love & respect your children exactly as they are. Love and light good people. “
Opening: Wade, who retired from the NBA last year after a career of 15 seasons, appeared on Ellen last week, where he opened an important exchange with Zaya
In the clip, Zaya told about her insights about being true herself while chatting with her father.
“What good is it to be on this earth if you try to be someone you are not?” she said. ‘It’s like you don’t even live like yourself, which is the stupidest concept for me. Be true and don’t really care what the “stereotypical” way of being is. “
She added that she remains patient and perseverance in times of change.
“You just have to go through it, I mean, it’s worth it, I feel like it’s worth it if you reach that point right away, yourself.”
