Dwyane Wade talks about Mike Tyson defending his daughter from transphobic comments

Dwyane Wade says he “appreciated” that Mike Tyson stood up for his family. In an interview with Central Ave on Friday, the NBA star spoke about how Tyson spoke out against rapper Boosie Badazz’s transphobic comments about Wade’s daughter.

“I actually talked to Mike about it early in the pandemic,” Wade said. “We had a conversation. I appreciate it from the point of view of, you know, Mike is someone who has never tried to be perfect. He is someone who has learned from this journey of life.”

“He’s so smart. He’s so polite and knowledgeable about life.” “For him to be able to drop that nugget into the world, for me, it was great to hear him say that.”

Tyson called Boosie during an episode of his Hotboxin ‘with Mike Tyson podcast after the rapper made transphobic comments about Zaya earlier this summer. Wade and his wife, Gabrielle Union, introduced Zaya to the world in February.

“I really commented on the Dwyane Wade situation because I was offended because he’s a kid,” Boosie said on the podcast. “That’s really why I was offended.”

“What happened to you that you think you are someone who can comment on someone’s life?” Tyson finally asked, while Boosie tried to defend himself.

Wade said Friday that he knows everyone has “their own path to accepting things.”

“I never went out and said anything to anyone who felt a certain way for me or someone else in my family and loved ones,” he said. “They don’t know us. They don’t know our hearts. They definitely don’t know Zaya. So all I do is what my mom says, ‘Just pray for them.
