The former National Basketball Association star took to Twitter to stand up against the "hate" his family has been receiving following the sweet snaps his wife, Gabrielle Union, shared on Instagram earlier this week in honor of Thanksgiving. Thankfully, the photo and Wade's parenting skills were also met with much positivity. Wade retweeted the comment with the "100" emoji.

"I've seen some post-thanksgiving hate on social about my family photo", Wade finally tweeted.

In response, Dwayne stated he has seen many hateful comments about his family following Thanksgiving, because "stupidity is apart of this world we live in - so I get it". (Damnit I'm crying) In our community, being given autonomy over your body, beliefs, image, & statements as a child isn't a thing. "So we will continue to be us and support each other with pride, love & a smile!" he wrote on Twitter. The Wade family attended the Miami Pride Parade this year to support Zion with tshirts that read "Please Remain Inclusive & Dedicated 2 Equality". To that, Union replied, "Looks like love to me". On Thanksgiving, Gabrielle Union took to Instagram to post a picture of her and her husband, Zion and baby Kaavia James Union Wade.

And as a father, it's his job to support them and encourage them to go down the paths they want to in life.

Wade expressed surprise to Variety about the social media criticism he'd received for his approach to raising his kids. "I'm very uneasy about accolades that come from supporting my kids or the negativity that comes from it.", he said "I'm doing what every parent has to do. So, go and be your unbelievable self and we're going to sit back and just love you".
