Dwyane Wade Responds To Criticism Over Son’s Appearance In Thanksgiving Photo”

Photos posted over Thanksgiving by Gabrielle Union, Wade's wife and her son's stepmother, showed the happy family posing together in a casual atmosphere. Apparently some viewers took issue with his fashion choices and made their opinion clear in the comments section, prompting the former Miami Heat player to hit back on Twitter, CNN reports.

"I've seen some post-thanksgiving hate on social about my family photo", Wade finally tweeted. "Stupidity is apart [sic] of this world we live in - so I get it", he wrote. Zion was snapped showing off blinged-out nails as well as a cropped top, which some criticized.

In the photo, the former National Basketball Association star and Union pose on a staircase with their daughter, Kaavia, and Wade's son from a previous relationship, Zion. That's what Gabrielle Union and husband Dwyane Wade, 37, did on November 30 in the first pics since the 47-year-old was let go after the 14th season of America's Got Talent as a first time judge for allegedly complaining about a racist joke and workplace toxicity.

This is not the first time that Zion has been targeted on social media.

Wade received numerous responses from other Twitter users who praised the couple for supporting their children. Earlier this year, Union attended Miami Beach Pride festival with Zion and during a June interview with Variety, Wade discussed raising his children.

"Shout out D. Wade for setting the example of a Black father loving and accepting their children as they are", wrote one follower.

Wade said to the outlet that he doesn't like to talk about his son's story very much because it was his story to tell, and not Dwayne's. "There'd be a lot less trauma in our community if more Black dads were like this". "That's our job. And my job as a father is to facilitate their lives and to support them and be behind them in whatever they want to do", said the 37-year-old.

Wade has also recently expressed his support for Union following her exit from America's Got Talent.
