Boosie Badazz Doubles Down on Parenting Criticism Aimed at Dwyane Wade'
2 Min Read

In February, former Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade made an appearance on the “Ellen DeGeneres Show” and shared a story of how his 12-year-old daughter Zaya came out as transgender.

Shortly after his appearance on the show, rapper Boosie Badazz criticized Wade’s parenting on Instagram, which led to some backlash.

On Monday, during an Instagram Live session, the rapper said he had no problem with the LGBTQ community, but doubled down on his criticism of Wade’s parenting skills.

“I got gay people around me. I got nothing against no gay people,” Boosie said. “I got gay people that work for me. I got gay people in my family. All I said was don’t do that, man.”

Boosie stood by his criticism of Wade’s parenting, arguing that young people aren’t equipped to make big decisions.

“At 11 or 12 I don’t know if I’m going shopping at Dillard’s or Footlocker. Ya heard?” Boosie said. “I don’t know if I’m going to college or staying. Big decisions I can’t make yet.”

Boosie went on to criticize the way parents are raising their children these days, saying they are “giving the children the f—– power.”

“We already can’t whoop em—we go to jail,” Boosie said. “Everything they come with and say they wanna do we gonna let them do it? ‘Daddy, I want to make bombs.’ You gonna give them the f—— method? What’s parenting gonna be? In ten years the children gonna be the parents.”
