The unfortunate and tragic incident which saw basketball’s most iconic face leave us completed its two-year anniversary. With the demise of Kobe Bryant and daughter Giannis along with other personnel involved in a horrific helicopter crash completing 2 years, fans all over the world wanted to somehow pay tribute to Black Mamba. One of many was Dwayne Wade trans child, Zaya. But it seems like Zaya’s attempts saw former player Kwame Brown come out and last onto her father.
Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade faced immense backlash when his daughter wore a yellow-colored, 8 numbered jersey-dress to pay respect to Kobe Bryant. The 14-years-old posted a photo of herself on social media account with a caption “Always honoring and remembering Kobe and Gianna.”
How did Kwame Brown lash onto Dwayne Wade
Zaya’s attire appeared custom-made where the jersey extended into a dress with frills, as she paired it with a bright yellow long skirt. Zaya also shared an old photo of herself and father Dwyane Wade with Vanessa and Gigi Bryant.
However, the teenager’s heartfelt tribute did not sit well with many admirers of Kobe Bryant as they lashed out at Wade for bad parenting. In fact, Wade’s Lakers teammate Kwame Brown slammed Zaya’s tribute as “disrespectful” saying, “You are letting your woman control your house.”
Moreover, Brown did not hold back and on a YouTube show called Bust Life, he stated that Dwayne Wade should level up as a man. To be precise, he stated, “I’m not saying there’s anything against homosexuals, but [Kobe] is a heterosexual man. Why is he being honored by making his jersey into a dress? Wear his goddamn jersey for the day to honor him without the dress part.”
Having said that, the criticism, abuse and hatred did not remain restricted to Kwame Brown, as Dwyane Wade was lambasted on social media by hundreds of Kobe fans. Many transphobic trolls even spewed hatred and disgust for the NBA player’s child who is only 14.
