50 Cent jokes about Dwyane Wade’s transgender daughter and R. Kelly
Updated: Aug 18
Film, American rapper, singer, songwriter, actor, television producer, entrepreneur and investor Curtis James Jackson III shared a meme on Sunday that had some people screaming foul after 50 Cent made a joke about Dwyane Wade‘s son Zion Malachi Airamis Wade who now desires to be a transgender daughter called, Zaya. A talk bubble above Kelly reads, “Heard you had a daughter now,” while one above the former NBA star reads, “U touch her I’ll kill ya.”
“LOL NOW THIS SOME FUNNY S–T,” 50 Cent, 44, captioned the post.
Kelly, 53, has been accused of sexually abusing several minors. He also faces racketeering, sex-trafficking and bribery charges in Brooklyn federal court and other criminal charges in state courts in Chicago and Minneapolis. Earlier this month, Wade confirmed his 12-year-old son born a male was transgender in an interview with confirmed lesbian Ellen DeGeneres. The former Miami Heat player said Zaya told him and his wife, Gabrielle Union, that he want to be referred as she and was “ready to live my truth.” With emotions running rampant among the LGBTQ community regarding any issue or news report that they deem offensive to their movement, several of 50 Cent’s followers thought his joke was in poor taste. One person commented, “Uhm besides the fact that Zaya was brave enough to identify herself, Dwayne also has a little baby girl! So this is wrong on all levels.”
However, there were also several people who commented with crying and laughing emojis.
Wade did not immediately return our request for comment.
