Gabrielle and Dwayne’s Thanksgiving Photo Draws Some Thankless Criticism

The holidays tend to make most parents grateful and proud of their children as evidenced by the enthusiasm of posting pictures of the fam.

Actress Gabrielle Union and hubby Dwayne Wade posted this family photo in celebration of Thanksgiving…

Instead of breaking the ‘awww’s’ and ‘oooooh’s’ meter for the level of cuteness oozing from their daughter and son, the couple got a lot of criticism and hatred.

The reason? Take a closer look at what their 12-year-old son Zion is wearing…a crop shirt and long white nails. A few critics didn’t like seeing the male child sporting what they judged to be a feminine look and expressed disapproval of Wade and Union’s parenting by allowing a child to determine his own gender preference.

Retired NBA all-star Dwayne Wade wasn’t hear for any of that negative energy and brought the heat in defense of his son.  Wade posted on Twitter, “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!”

This isn’t the first time Wade and Union have come to the defense of the son.  Remember all the anger the couple received when they escorted Zion to the Miami Pride Parade earlier this year?

And the Wades aren’t the first celebrity parents to be trounced and troll for their liberal parenting.  Will Smith and Jada, Angelina Jolie, Magic Johnson have all been criticized for allowing their chided for allowing their children to dress the way they want.

Is this a case of liberal celebrities trying to push an agenda on the world as conspiracy theorists fear and allege?  Apparently not.  Wade had his family’s back and a lot of fans had his back…

 

One response pointed out that in the Black community, homophobia runs rampant.  There’s no proof of that but people keep saying it.  The Black community, especially the younger generations, are a lot more tolerant and accepting of all people and preferences.  They’re more willing to let people live their lives as they choose.

You don’t have to raise your children the way Wade and Union have decided to raise theirs…then again maybe we all should.  Wade’s offense to many is that he’s decided to love his children.  Tell me, what child no matter their race or class wouldn’t pray to have a dad who is present, accountable and loving enough to listen to his children.

    America and hollywood have declared war against black men and black boys. They do not want black men to marry black women and start a black nuclear family. They do not want black boys to be tough, intelligent and masculine. Black parents please guard your sons against the dangers of homosexuality. Only a black man loving a black woman can produce a beautiful black child. Marriage is between one man and one woman!
