Dwayne Wade responded to some post-Thanksgiving hate that a family photo of his received. Fans weren't thrilled to see his son Zion wearing acrylic nails. Though they've been quiet about their son's sexuality, Wade and wife Gabriela Union have expressed the "pride" they feel for their child. These two are the most supportive parents in Hollywood, and Wade didn't stand by when he saw the negative comments on the post.
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! ✌🏾— DWade (@DwyaneWade) November 30, 2019
Earlier this year, Union shared a celebratory Pride Month photo with Zion, beaming with nothing but love for her family. The couple's parenting skills have been met with equal amounts of praise, and that shouldn't go unnoticed.
“Idk if @DwyaneWade & @itsgabrielleu know how POWERFUL & MOVING it is that they’re embracing their son’s individuality. (Damnit I’m crying) In our community, being given autonomy over your body, beliefs, image, & statements as a child isn’t a thing. That child is free & happy,” one fan wrote.
