Dwyane Wade She no longer defends hate on her daughter’s social media account! The former NBA superstar announced that she restricts comments on zaya wadeinstagram of
Wade made the announcement in a tweet on Thursday after fans asked why the comments section on Zaya’s page was disabled.
Julian King, a musician from Philadelphia, mentioned Wade and his wife Gabrielle Union on Twitter saying: “I hate that I can’t comment hearts and cute comments on Zaya Wade’s IG post. As a member of her community, the LGBTQ community, I want to cheer her on too! @itsgabrielleu @DwyaneWade–please fix it.”
The former NBA superstar explained that the comments feature had been turned off for the sake of Zaya’s mental health.
For Zaya’s sanity and privacy, we have decided not to allow hate in her comments. Thank you for wanting to spread and show her love”.
Zaya recently appeared on Instagram sporting a whole new look: busted inches with a slightly bruised face. New photos of Zaya generated a lot of conversation online as the teen, who came out as transgender in 2020, began presenting herself in a more feminine way.
Despite the open love and support Zaya has received since coming out as transgender, the teen has spoken out about the public scrutiny and criticism she has faced over the past two years. Zaya opened up about the issue during an interview with step-mom Gabrielle Union for the Dove Self-Esteem Project.
As a trans person, once I came out, there were a lot of hate comments about how I should grow my hair long or fit into a certain version of femininity, even though that’s not true at all. That kind of advice is just trying to break you, but don’t let it.”
Zaya also revealed the biggest lesson she learned from the ‘Bring It On’ star.
She tells me that not everyone in the world and in the media is going to be honest about your appearance. I don’t have to believe everything they say. The only thing I have to believe is what I feel and what beauty means to me. I think focusing on inner beauty is the most important thing.”
