The family photo Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union shared on Thanksgiving caused quite a bit of chatter on social media.

Many people expressed their thoughts and opinions about DWade’s parenting when it comes to his son, Zion Wade, and there were a lot of comments that were downright mean and hateful.

The retired NBA star took to Twitter on Saturday to address the “hate” towards his family photo writing:

I’ve seen some post-thanksgiving hate on social about my family photo. Stupidity is apart of this world we live in—so i get it.

But here’s the thing—I’ve been chosen to lead my family not y’all. So we will continue to be us and support each other with pride, love & a smile! ✌?

As long as Dwyane Wade and his family are happy and healthy – that’s all that matters.
