Dwyane Wade Slams Trolls Who Criticised His Son’s Fake Nails, Crop Top

Dwyane Wade took to Twitter on Saturday to defend his youngest son against closed-minded internet trolls.

It all started on Thanksgiving Day, when Wade’s wife, Gabrielle Union, shared a nice family photo on her Instagram page. The picture showed the couple with their 1-year-old daughter, Kaavia, and 12-year-old son, Zion, who was wearing a crop top and fake nails. A number of people decided to criticize the boy’s style choices and suggested Wade was somehow a bad father for allowing his son to express himself as he pleased.

“Smh wtf this lil boy got nails on for?” one person wrote. “I’ve lost all respect for D Wade …”

“Why does his son have his nails done and dressed like a girl?” another commented.

Though the negative messages were outweighed by the positive, Wade decided it was important to address those of the latter variety, while also defending his family and parenting skills.

“As a parent my only goal is that my kids feel that i see them, love them and support them,” he wrote. “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!
