Boosie Badazz apparently didn’t learn from his first transphobic rant that got him kicked out of Planet Fitness. The rapper went on Instagram Live again and continued to spew hateful comments toward Zaya Wade, the daughter of NBA star Dwyane Wade and actress Gabrielle Union.
In his first controversial video, which he filmed in Planet Fitness, Badazz blatantly misgendered Zaya.
“That is a male. A 12-year-old. At 12, they don’t even know what they next meal gon’ be,” he said at the time. “They don’t have shit figured out yet. He might meet a woman, anything, at 16 and fall in love with her. But his dick be gone—how he gon’—like, bruh, you going too far, dawg. … Don’t fucking cut off his dick off.”
After hearing these comments, Badazz was asked to leave Planet Fitness, which takes pride in being a “judgement-free zone.” He claimed that the gym was “racist” and full of “haters.”
On Monday, the father of eight defended his remarks via Instagram Live.
“I got gay people around me. I got nothing against no gay people.” He said. “I got gay people that work for me. I got gay people in my family. All I said was don’t do that, man.”
To make matters worse, he seemingly defended child abuse.
“We already can’t whoop em—we go to jail,” he added. “Everything they come with and say they wanna do we gonna let them do it? ‘Daddy, I want to make bombs.’ You gonna give them the fucking method? What’s parenting gonna be? In ten years the children gonna be the parents.”
Badazz is not the only one who has made transphobic comments toward the Wade family and their daughter, Zaya. Rapper Young Thug and Empire actress Serayah McNeill are just some of the critics who had something negative to say about how Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union are choosing to parent their daughter.
