About a month before the global pandemic reached the United States, rapper Boosie decided to get something off his chest after seeing Dwayne Wade transgender daughter in pictures and videos.
The Baton Rouge rapper not only criticized the decision but slammed Wade for his support of the lifestyle.
“I gotta say something about this shit, bro. Dwyane Wade, you gone too fucking far, dawg,” the 37-year-old said, before quickly delving into more transphobic comments. “That is a male. A 12-year-old. At 12, they don’t even know what they next meal gon’ be. They don’t have shit figured out yet. He might meet a woman, anything, at 16 and fall in love with her. But his dick be gone—how he gon’—like, bruh, you going too far, dawg.”
“Don’t cut his dick off, bruh. Like, bruh, for real, if he gon’ be gay, let him be gay,” Boosie said. “But don’t cut his dick off, bruh. Don’t—and dress him as a woman, dawg. He’s 12 years old. He’s not up there year. He hasn’t made his final decisions yet. Don’t cut his fucking dick off, Dwyane Wade, bruh. You fucking trippin’, dawg.”
Fast forward to over a year and the Miami Heat legend is now thanking Boosie Badazz and others about their comments made about his daughter.
“At the end of the day, what I’m dealing with people, I’m dealing with life and death. It’s people in the transgender community that are getting killed. It’s kids that are murdering theirselves, that are hanging themselves, they’re killing themselves because something as simple as acceptance,” Wade explained during his appearance on the “I Am Athlete” podcast.
“Something as simple as unconditional love is not being given to these kids, and I’ll be Goddamned if my child gon’ be that person because of something as simple as me supporting who you are.”
“So, Boosie, all the people who got something to say, J-Boogie (J-Boog of 2000s R&B group B2K) who just came out recently … All the people who got something to say about my kids, I thank you because you’re allowing the conversation to keep going forward because you what? You might not have the answer today, I don’t have all the answers, but we’re growing from all these conversations,” Wade said. “So I thank everybody for even hating and starting these conversations because those conversations are starting other conversations that we need to have. And that’s happening out there.”
Boosie’s transphobic rant drew a reaction from Mike Tyson, who confronted him about his take.
“He’s one of those people … he’s so smart, he’s so educated and knowledgeable about life and for him to drop that nugget on the world … to me, it was great to hear him say that,” Wade previously said of Tyson.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
