Dwyane Wade says he “appreciated” Mike Tyson defending his family.
During a new interview, the 38-year-old retired NBA player opened up about the 54-year-old boxing icon speaking out against rapper Boosie Badazz, who made transphobic comments abut Dwyane‘s daughter Zaya.
“I actually talked to Mike about that early in the pandemic,” Dwyane shared on an interview with Central Ave. “We had a conversation. I appreciated from a standpoint of, you know, Mike is someone who has never tried to be perfect. He is someone who has learned from this journey of life.”
“He’s so smart. He is so educated and knowledgeable about life,” he added.
Earlier this summer, Boosie made an appearance on Mike‘s Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson podcast and talked about the transphobic comments he made earlier about Dwyane‘s 13-year-old daughter.
“I really commented on the Dwyane Wade situation because I got offended because it’s a child,” Boosie said to Mike. “That’s really why I got offended.”
Mike responded, “What happened to you that you think that you’re somebody that can comment on somebody’s life?”
Dwyane then added, “I’ve never came out and said anything to anybody that feels a certain way about me or someone else in my family and my loved ones. They don’t know us. They don’t know our heart. They definitely don’t know Zaya. So, all I do is what my mama say, ‘Just pray for them.’”
Dwyane and wife Gabrielle Union recently praised Zaya during the 2020 GLAAD Media Awards.
