Internet trolls truly know no boundaries. Nobody is safe from them…including children.
They also have no regard for who they hurt with their words, and this NBA star and his family are no exception.
Dwyane Wade is an NBA star who is married to the actress Gabrielle Union-Wade.
These stars took to social media to share a sweet photo of their family, and the haters quickly came up with some terrible things to say…especially about how their 12-year-old son Zion was dressed.

In the picture above, Zion is wearing a crop top and fake nails, and the internet absolutely lost it.
Internet trolls criticized Zion for what he was wearing, and they criticized Dwyane and Gabrielle for their parenting.
Dwyane has been very vocal about supporting his son Zion, and in an interview he did with Variety, he spoke about how he went to a Miami pride parade with him.
“I think as a family, we should support each other. That’s our job. And my job as a father is to facilitate their lives and to support them and be behind them in whatever they want to do,” Dwyane said in the interview.
“I’m asked a question about my kids a lot from a sports perspective. I think people expect you to parent each kid the same. They are all different, and I have to get to know them and where they are. I have to say to most parents, get to know your kids. Don’t put your wants and needs on them.”
He wasn’t silent when people came for him and his family online, saying the following.

“As a parent my only goal is that my kids feel that I see them, love them and support them,” Dwayne tweeted. Now THAT is a dad.
That’s a slam dunk of a reply. What do you think?
