Rapper Young Thug misgendered Dwayne Wade’s 12-year-old daughter, who recently came out as trans, and said that: “God don’t make mistakes”.
In the since deleted tweet, the rapper attempted to hamstring the overwhelming love and support directed towards Zaya by deliberately misgendering her.
“All I wanna say to Dwade’s son is: ‘God don’t make mistakes’.
”But, hey, live your true self,” the rapper wrote Tuesday, according to screenshots posted on Twitter.
Rappers round-up and hound Dwayne Wade for suppering his daughter.
The tweet roiled fans, with the anti-trans tone of the tweet prompting many to denounce the musician and urge him to take down the tweet.
He later tweeted, “You’re God’s best creation,” a statement which did not sit well with some fans.

While Young Thug removed the tweet, it was the latest in an anti-trans tirade directed against Wade’s daughter from fellow rappers.
Fellow rapper Boosie Badazz blasted Wade and his daughter on an Instagram post Tuesday captioned: “I’m go say it since this p***y a** world ain’t go say s**t.
“You trippin’, n*****, period.”
“Don’t cut his d**k off, bruh,” the father of eight said in the video.
“Like, bruh, for real, if he gonna be gay, let him be gay. But don’t cut his d**k off, bruh.
“Don’t dress him as a woman, dawg. He’s 12 years old.
“He’s not up there yet. He hasn’t made his final decisions yet.
“Don’t cut his f***ing d**k off, Dwyane Wade.”
It remains unclear what age Badazz was when he made the “final decision” to be cisgendered, however.
TK the Artist commented on the post: “It’s power and fear the gay agenda feeds off of.”
The artist, who is vegan and operates a hemp and organic cotton clothing line, then explained that Wade has “brainwashed” his child.
It appears that the rapper can excuse transphobia and homophobia, but draws the line at animal cruelty.
