Dwayne Wade fired back after online trolls criticized his 12-year-old’s appearance in a family photo that was posted to wife Gabrielle Union’s Instagram.
Wade tweeted, “I’ve seen some post-thanksgiving hate on social about my family photo. Stupidity is apart of this world we live in—so i get it. But here’s the thing—I’ve been chosen to lead my family not y’all. So we will continue to be us and support each other with pride, love & a smile!”
In the original photo, Wade’s son, Zion, sports acrylic nails and a crop top.
Some users online commended Wade for having his son’s back, with one writing: “In our community, being given autonomy over your body, beliefs, image & statements as a child isn’t a thing."
Wade replied, “As a parent, my only goal is that my kids feel that i see them, love them and support them."
Wade expressed his support for Zion’s attendance at Miami Pride in April.
