Former boxer Mike Tyson confronted rapper Boosie Badazz for making transphobic comments about the daughter of former player Dwyane Wade, Zaya, who is a trans teenager, now 13.

In an interview with TMZ, Tyson stated that “It was like Badazz”, but that his daughter convinced him to think differently.

“My daughter flew from New York to Los Angeles, California, where I am, just to be there because she thought Boosie was so disrespectful that she would have to confront him” – said Mike Tyson, who ended up going to represent his daughter and added that during the meeting between him and Badazz, the rapper was respectful during the meeting between the two and that the debate went smoothly.

Wade revealed about her daughter being a trans girl on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”, saying she was designated as a boy at birth, but was transgender, but that the family has always understood and supported her.

“First of all, my wife and I, Gabrielle Union, are proud parents of a child from the LGBTQ+ community, and we are also proud allies. (…) She said, ‘Look, I want to talk to you, I want to move on and live my truth. And I want you to refer to my daughter as ‘her or hers’. I would love it if you call her Zaya “ – said the former NBA star at the time.

Dwyane Wade‘s daughter’s first appearance as a transgender girl was during the 2020 Truth Awards on March 7. Wade said in an interview with ABC Morning’s Good Morning America that his daughter knew she had been trans since she was three years old.

The former NBA player said he knew his daughter was different, but he didn’t know if he was a gay boy or if he was a trans girl. At the age of eight, Zaya told him about his gender identity and there was a process of deconstruction by Dwyane himself.

In addition to Zaya, Wade has three other children: Zaire, 18; Xavier, 6 years old; and Kaavia, one year old.
