I've lost all respect for D Wade. " Thankfully, far more fans filled the comments with love for Zion's look — and for the way Wade and Union let him freely and happily express himself — but understandably, Wade felt that he needed to come to Zion's defense, as any supportive father would, as well as let the trolls know that they don't get say in how he raises his children.
His steadfast and open support for Zion has garnered praise from countless fans, one of whom wrote, "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 ????????. " Wade retweeted that comment, adding, "As a parent my only goal is that my kids feel that i see them, love them and support them.
Union posted a photo of herself with Wade, Zion, and baby Kaavia posing on a staircase, along with the caption, "Grateful ❤❤❤ Happy Thanksgiving good people.
On Saturday, Wade took to Twitter to write, "I’ve seen some post-thanksgiving hate on social about my family photo.
The retired Miami Heat superstar had a beautiful response to the cruel comments. https://t.co/dqITCTqNJ2— Allure (@Allure_magazine) December 1, 2019
