Dwyane Wade is one of the most attentive and loving celebrity fathers that MTO News has covered. But now his 11 year old son Zion is being harassed by people online - who are calling the young man "gay."

Dwayne and wife Gabrielle Union are raising the 11 year old Zion, along with his two brothers Zaire and Dahveon and sister Kaavia, in a home with love and inclusion. All of the boys are encouraged to be honest with themselves, and to follow their dreams.

Zion's dream is to be involved in fashion. And last week the 11 year old boy got his chance to walk the runway at a fashion show. 

 As soon as the young man finished strutting across the runway, video of him went viral.

Here's the video that got people talking:

People on Twitter have been making very cruel, evil, and homophobic statements about a child. 

So far Dwyane and Gabby Union have not responded to the hate their son received online.


A few weeks ago, Union sat down with GMA today to talk about her road to motherhood and kicking butt in her new high-octane TV series.

Union admitted she felt like she was “surrendering to failure” when she decided to use a surrogate to welcome her first child into the world.

Last November, the 46-year-old beauty stunned fans by posting pictures of herself, Wade, and their new baby girl onto her social media account.
