Boosie received tons of public backlash after he spoke on Dwyane Wade’s 12-year-old daughter Zaya’s decision to openly come out as transgender.
The rapper revealed to Baller Alert that his mom scolded him for his transphobic comments, telling him to “stay out people’s business”. He explained, “That’s just how I felt. People gotta understand that’s how I feel…Even my momma got on my ass yesterday. My momma called me early in the morning and got on my ass, talking about, ‘Stay off social media! That’s they family! You stay out people’s business…’But I was just speaking how I felt.”
The original video is still up on Boosie’s IG page and his comments even got him kicked out of a Planet Fitness. He called for a boycott of the gym, and accused the company of being racist. When asked if he felt it was appropriate for him to comment on another person’s parenting skills, he admits, “Not really. But when I feel you’re wrong, you’re wrong. People have told me how to parent my children when I was wrong .” He also added, “I got a lot of bad backlash, but I got a lot of people who feel the same way.”
Boosie says, he and Wade don’t know each other personally, but reveals that his is a fan of his. Watch Boosie’s full interview below:
