The former National Basketball Association star took to Twitter to stand up against the "hate" his family has been receiving following the sweet snaps his wife, Gabrielle Union, shared on Instagram earlier this week in honor of Thanksgiving.
Dwyane Wade #3 of the Miami Heat hugs his son, ZionWade, after his final career home game at American Airlines Arena.
Comments started coming in criticizing the parents for allowing Zion to sport acrylic nails, but the former basketball player wasted no time jumping to Zion's defence.
"Why does his son have his nails done and dressed like a girl?" another commented.
Retired NBA icon Dwyane Waderesponded to critics on his family's Thanksgiving photo, noting that "Stupidity is a part of this world we live in". (Damnit I'm crying) In our community, being given autonomy over your body, beliefs, image, & statements as a child isn't a thing. "So we will continue to be us and support each other with pride, love, and a smile!"
"Earlier this year, Wade posted a picture of Zion and Union at Miami Beach Pride Parade, captioning it: 'We support each other with Pride, '" CNN reported.
Besides the ugliness in the comments and on Twitter, many commended the father of four for accepting his son and supporting him no matter what.
Wade has also recently expressed his support for Union following her exit from America's Got Talent. "To all the friends and family that have my back and all the friends and family I've never met who show love and support when everyone is looking and when no one is looking ..."
See D Wade's original tweet below. Several people wrote in to ridicule Zion's appearance and apparently Wade's parenting, according to Complex. "When supported and loved as they grow and develop, kids mature into happy and healthy adults".
