Dwyane Wade Defended His Family Against "Post-Thanksgiving Hate" on Social Media

After Union shared the photos, Wade responded to negative comments, tweeting, "I've seen some post-thanksgiving hate on social about my family photo". (Damnit I'm crying) In our community, being given autonomy over your body, beliefs, image, & statements as a child isn't a thing. Wade retweeted the comment with the "100" emoji.

The former National Basketball Association star took to Twitter to address the critics, writing, "I've seen some post-thanksgiving hate on social about my family photo". I truly hope that everyone gets the love, support and hugs they deserve" and added, in reference to her daughter's serious look at the camera, "Also Kaav ain't with the dumb s -. Earlier in the year, Union went to the Miami Beach Pride festival with their son and during a conversation with Variety in June, Wade dished on what it was like raising his children. Wade was on the road with the Miami Heat and wrote on an Instagram story, "We support each other wide Pride!" Zion, then 11, attended the Pride event with Union and his siblings.

In the photos, Wade and Union posed alongside their children, one-year-old Kaavia, and 12-year-old Zion, who Wade shares with ex Siohvaughn Funches. "To all the friends and family that have my back and all the friends and family I've never met who show love and support when everyone is looking and when no one is looking ... 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".

And when social media users began to criticize the photo, Wade responded. Once you bring kids into this world, you become unselfish.
