Dwyane Wade Defended His Son For Wearing A Crop Top And Fake Nails And It's How Every Father Should Be

Yes, Dwyane.

Apparently there are a bunch of people who enjoy criticizing children and how they express themselves. Sad.

VH1

Well, those types of people — aka trolls — came for Dwyane Wade and his wife, Gabrielle Union, after she posted this Thanksgiving family photo.

In the photo, Dwyane's 12-year-old son, Zion, is rocking fake nails and a crop top.

A LOOK!

Anyway, some people decided to leave negative comments about Zion's outfit on Gabrielle's photo, like these.

SMH. Imagine having the time to criticize the outfit of a 12-year-old who's free of society's unhealthy norms. Again, sad.

Anyway, Dwyane addressed the controversy with a few tweets. First he responded to one person who had praised him for "setting the example of a Black father loving and accepting their children as they are."

He answered another person, saying, "As a parent my only goal is that my kids feel that [I] see them, love them and support them."

As a parent my only goal is that my kids feel that i see them , love them and support them. https://t.co/ZrJp9WFdbi

And then, finally, he issued a message to those who criticize him, saying, "Stupidity is [a part] of this world we live in — so I get it."

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! ✌🏾

"We will continue to be us and support each other with pride, love & a smile!" Ugh, thank you, Dwyane. Let me just say, as a gay man, that this attitude and support makes all the difference.

And thank you, Zion, for expressing yourself. Don't ever change!
