Dear Haters, Leave Dwyane Wade's Son Alone

Dwyane Wade's son was recently spotted looking fabulous in a family photo for Thanksgiving, but of course, haters gonna hate. The trolls of the internet have responded to Zion's crop top and fake nails- and all I have to say is save the negativity, Wade's son looks great.

If you haven't seen the hateful comments, here's a little taste, and it's really, really nasty:

OK, first of all, Zion's nails look GREAT, as if it was any of your business. BYE, hater.

And then there's this...

Obviously, the Wades are not encouraging their son to "grow up too fast," but more so they are teaching him to express himself in a way that's not harming anyone else.

And then there's this...*eye roll*

How about Romans 2:1 "You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge another, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things?" and all other Bible verses condemning judgment. It seems Wade's family won't be the ones that must "answer to God."

This continues throughout the whole comments section, and it honestly makes me sick.

Despite the negativity, Wade poses as a great role model by not only denouncing toxic masculinity and gender roles publicly, but also promoting pride, love, and family values. After seeing the hate about his son on his wife's Instagram page, Wade stands up for his family against the stupidity and ignorance in the comments. As shown below on Perez Hilton's Instagram, Wade tweeted:

"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!"

Hilton praised Wade for standing up against bullies from the internet. on Instagram: “Dwyane Wade classily defends 12-year-old son Zion from Internet bullies, after Zion was criticized for his nails and crop top in this…”

Wade also responds to a comment praising his loyalty to his family by highlighting that his sole objective as a parent is to love and support his kids. Now, this is what I call good parenting. His actions not only allow his son to be who he wants to be, but he also is publicly promoting individualism, and toxic parents everywhere should take note. Here is a family photo, with the Wade family sporting shirts with the message "Please Remain Inclusive & Dedicated 2 Equality."
