AceShowbiz - Gabrielle Union isn't letting all the bad talks out there affect her family. The 46-year-old actress has responded fiercely after a Twitter user tried to stir a debate about her stepson Zion's possible gender transition.
The said troll picked up a photo posted by Gabrielle's husband Dwayne Wade earlier on Tuesday, October 15. In the picture, the "Bring It On" star smiled widely while holding her and Dwayne's daughter Kaavis, with Zion standing next to Gabrielle.
Dwayne proudly captioned the picture on Instagram Stories with "My Girls," prompting a speculation that he confirmed his son is now a transgender. The Internet troll, meanwhile, reposted the photo on Twitter and asked people to weigh in on it as he asked, "What y'all think about this?"
Getting wind of it, Gabrielle quickly shut down those who have opinions on her family. "Looks like love to me ... I truly hope that everyone gets the love, support and hugs they deserve," she wrote in response to the Twitter post. "Also Kaav ain't with the dumb s**t. Peace & Blessings good people."
Many have since left supportive messages to Gabrielle's family. "Me personally I don't see a problem with it," one replied to the question. Another told people to stop minding others' business. "I think we should live our lives cause they damn sure ain't concerned about us lol," the said user wrote.
A third user similarly reacted, "Love it! Her kids get the love and acceptance they deserve and it doesn't affect my life in any way, my bills still get paid, I still go to work, my apartment still looks nice and I'm still minding my business living my best life. Great job @itsgabrielleu."
Someone else commented, "As a parent ur to encourage, love & support ur children. The gender your child feels inside/identifies as shouldn't change a parents love or how they treat their children. Ur not always going to love their decisions. If their not cheating, killing, lying or stealing let them be!"
Dwayne previously hinted at his son Zion's LGBTQ status when he and Gabrielle took the boy to Miami Pride festivities with his older brother Zaire, and his baby sister, Kaavia. "We support each other with Pride!" the athlete wrote along with pictures, one of which showed his wife with her arm around Zion, who was wearing a rainbow ribbon on his tank top.
