Fans React To Mike Tyson's Interview With Lil Boosie -- Boxing Legend Confronts Rapper About Zaya Wade Comments
Lil Boosie made headlines after criticizing Dwyane Wade's parenting skills after revealing that his daughter, Zaya Wade is transgender. Boxing legend, Mike Tyson , recently confronted him about his comments.
Mike was coming from a place of trying to understand why the rapper felt so strongly about the gay community. During an episode of Hot Boxin' With Mike Tyson , he asked if Boosie was gay because a lot of the time homophobia comes from people who are struggling with their own sexuality.
Instead of being defensive, the rapper said that he just didn't know when to 'shut the f*** up' and that he was straight.
He went on to say that he felt so strongly about Zaya Wade's transition because he thinks that 12-years-old is too young to make those kinds of decisions.
The father who has made headlines for his parenting skills took to Instagram to say: 'I gotta say something about this shit, bro. Dwyane Wade, you gone too f****** far, dawg. That is a male. A 12-year-old. At 12, they don’t even know what they next meal gon’ be. They don’t have s*** figured out yet. He might meet a woman, anything, at 16 and fall in love with her. But his d*** be gone—how he gon’—like, bruh, you going too far, dawg. Don’t cut his d*** off, bruh. Like, bruh, for real, if he gon’ be gay, let him be gay. But don’t cut his d*** off, bruh. Don’t—and dress him as a woman, dawg. He’s 12 years old. He’s not up there yet. He hasn’t made his final decisions yet. Don’t cut his f***** d*** off, Dwyane Wade, bruh. You f****** trippin’, dawg.'
Where Boosie went wrong was giving his opinion on something he didn't know enough about. In no capacity did the athlete say that his daughter would be undergoing surgery.
Many people applauded Tyson for asking the rapper about the issue because his comments about Zaya weren't the only homophobic comments that he's made in the past.
