Union posted a cheeky photo of herself in a bikini looking back at the camera. She wrote a comment about the people hating on her family. Union said, “Just wading thru some of these “hot takes” like ? ? My smile stays put and the fight for liberation for us all continues. Keep smiling and keep fighting ? Good day good people #StopAssumingFactsNotInEvidence.”
Earlier this month, Union shared a video of Zaya talking about her identity and why she decided to come out as herself. The video was captioned, “Meet Zaya. 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 announcement lead to many people supporting Wade, Union, and his daughter. People have shown support for their daughter being brave to come out.
The decision has caused some people like rapper Boosie BadAzz to criticize Wade. He released a lengthy video saying, “I gotta say something about this s–t, bro. Dwyane Wade, you gone too f—-ng far, dawg. 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 s–t figured out yet. He might meet a woman, anything, at 16 and fall in love with her. But his di-k be gone—how he gon’—like, bruh, you going too far, dawg.”
Many people were quick to point out nobody ever said Zaya was getting gender reassignment surgery. Being transgender can mean a lot of different things to a person and doesn’t necessarily involve gender reassignment surgery.
Wade is completely unbothered by the haters and is already back to work. He dropped a song with Rick Ross titled “Season Ticket Holder.”
.@DwyaneWade says he “struggled” about how much of Zaya’s journey he wanted to put in his @ESPN documentary, but “I knew if I put it in the doc at all, it would be a big conversation." https://t.co/ZdCAUU3gAQ pic.twitter.com/FLUwhAZAxW
