Gabrielle Unions stepson has not had it easy since April this year.
The 11-year-old son, Zion, has been trending online for some time.
All because he identifies as gay and was recently again seen wearing a crop top and fake nails in a family photo.
On April 7, she accompanied her stepson to the Miami Beach Pride Festival, taking along her 5-month-old daughter, Kaavia, and Zion’s 17-year-old brother, Zaire.
The “Being Mary Jane” star was bashed online after sharing pictures at the parade. She defended the young man explaining what diversity and inclusion means in their household.
Her retired Miami Heat superstar husband Dwayne Wade had now had to step in to write the perfect response to the cruel comments.
Wade took to Twitter to write, “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! ✌🏾
Judgmental trolls began parent-shaming the couple, leaving comments like, “Why does his son have his nails done and dressed like a girl? 🤔” and, “Smh wtf this lil boy got nails on for? I’ve lost all respect for D Wade.”
Gabby and D. Wade welcomed their first child together in November via surrogate.
“We are sleepless and delirious but so excited to share that our miracle baby arrived last night via surrogate and 11/7 will forever be etched in our hearts as the most loveliest of all the lovely days,” the actress wrote on Instagram at the time. “Welcome to the party sweet girl!”
