Dwyane Wade Responds to Critics of His 12-Year-Old Child Zion's Thanksgiving Nails & Crop Top

Dwyane Wade is responding to some of the hate being directed towards his child, Zion, 12, in his family’s Thanksgiving photo.

In the picture, Dwyane and his wife Gabrielle Union are posing with kids Zion, 12, and Kaavia, 12 months.

Once the photo was posted to Instagram, users started commenting about Zion‘s fake nails and crop top.

“Why does his son have his nails done and dressed like a girl?,” one troll wrote, while another posted, “Nails done and crop top 🤨 🤦🏽‍♀️ where is this child biological mother.”

Dwyane took to Twitter to respond, “As a parent my only goal is that my kids feel that i see them , love them and support them.” He added, “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!”

The family previously supported Zion at Miami’s Pride Festival earlier this year.
