In an interview, former heavyweight boxing champ Mike Tyson pressed rapper Boosie BadAzz on Monday (October 24) to clarify why he slammed Dwayne Wade’s 12-year-old daughter Zaya who got here out as transgender.
“Why do you say issues about individuals who is perhaps a gay? Why do you say that about them? Tyson demanded. “Do you’re feeling there is a risk that you are a gay and by disrespecting them it furthers your self from being a gay? I am pondering you could like homosexuals.”
The Baton Rouge MC responded that he’s “as straight as an arrow.”
Tyson didn’t again down. “For those who’re straight then why do you offend folks?” he asks the rapper throughout his look on Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson.
In February, the retired NBA star shared the story on The Ellen DeGeneres Present of how Zaya got here out as transgender.
Boosie took to social media and posted transphobic feedback directed on the Wade household.
Zaya’s transition has to do together with her gender identification, not sexual orientation, making the dialog between Tyson and Boosie misguided for plenty of causes.
Boosie admitted to Tyson that generally he must hold his mouth shut.
“I actually commented on the Dwyane Wade state of affairs as a result of I acquired offended as a result of it is a baby. That is actually why I acquired offended,” he defined to the champ.
