An old interview with Gabrielle Union that has recently surfaced shows the actress criticizing the rapper Boosie Badazz. But what sparked the conflict in the first place? This goes all the way back to the year 2020, when it was found out that Zaya Wade, who was Gabrielle’s stepchild, now identifies as a transgender female.
Gabrielle Union’s new LGBTQ+ film, The Inspection, was scheduled to be released in theaters on December 2, 2022; however, the actress’ feud with Boosie Badazz has taken center stage in recent days after an old interview was found and prompted a response from the rapper on Twitter.
The year 2020 marked the beginning of their feud, which was sparked when Gabrielle’s stepdaughter Zaya Wade went public with her sexual orientation.
What kind of things did Boosie have to say about Gabrielle Union’s daughter?
Let us provide you with some background information first before we launch into the rants and clapbacks.
Zaya Wade is the daughter of Dwayne Wade, a former star for the Miami Heat, and Siohvaughn Funches, his first wife. Zaya is also an NBA player. At birth, she was given a male gender identity. The couple divorced in 2007, and Gabriella became a stepmother the following year, when she married Dwanye.
After Dwayne revealed Zaya’s new chapter on Good Morning America in February 2020, the family made a public display of their support for the LGBTQ+ community. He mentioned that Zaya had been aware of her transgender identity since the age of three. Consequently, despite the fact that it was a sudden revelation to the general public, the Wade family had known for a considerable amount of time.
Dwayne recalled that Zaya was the one who broke the news to the rest of the family by sitting down with them and saying, “Hey, I don’t think I’m gay.” She proceeded to go through the list and then stated, “This is how I identify myself – I identify myself as a young lady.”
Boosie, on the other hand, stated his opinion on Instagram that he believed Zaya was too young to make such a significant choice in her life.
According to Billboard, the rapper can be heard saying in the video that was later removed, “That is a male. A child of 12 years old. At the age of 12, they have no idea what they will eat for the next meal. They still don’t have a lot of things figured out. At the age of 16, he could run into anyone and immediately fall in love with them. But that piece of s*** is going away.”
Torrence Ivy Hatch is the real name of the rapper who continued, “If he’s going to be gay, let him be gay. But please refrain from cutting off his d***, bro. Please don’t make him look like a woman, dawg. He will turn 12 later this year. He has not yet reached that level. The ultimate choice in this matter has not been made by him as of yet.”
The recently resurfaced interview with Gabrielle Union slams Boosie’s rant.
Gabrielle’s interview with Jemele Hill on November 7, 2021, in which the actress touched on supporting Zaya in her life as a transgender female, is the video that has reignited the drama. The interview was published on November 7, 2021.
She updated the status to say that things were “so far so good,” and then she added a dig at her ex-boyfriend by saying “sorry, Boosie” while acknowledging his comments about her child.
Gabrielle continued: “He’s so preoccupied. It sounds almost as if you protest too much, Little Boose. Gabrielle then added, “You got a lot of d*** on your mind,” which gave the impression that she was calling into question the rapper’s sexuality.
Twitter gets blasted by Boosie’s response.
Although the star of Think Like a Man has not yet responded to the old interview, Boosie wasted no time in setting the record straight on Twitter, where he categorically refuted Gabrielle’s assertions.
“LOL! Everyone in the world is aware of my passion for females. “Hope you don’t think black people look at you both as a power couple because they don’t,” Boosie said to the couple.
“I had refused to talk about you all in interviews, but here you go,” she said.
“Woman, it’s best if you just stay away from me!” the local resident of Baton Rouge
“I can’t believe you have the audacity to question a ghetto hero’s manhood. You are completely wrong, SMH. I don’t have time for this because I’m working so hard to find some equilibrium in my life and stay alive.
