Dwyane Wade responded to social media users who criticized the appearance of his 12-year-old son, Zion Malachi Airamis, in a recent family photo, NBC News reported.
The retired NBA star dismissed what he described as "post-Thanksgiving hate" in a tweet over the weekend.
"Stupidity," Wade wrote, is a part 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!"
