As we previously reported, Lil Boosie spoke out regarding Dwyane Wade’s daughter, Zaya Wade. The rapper received some backlash for his transphobic comments, even from his own mother, as Bossip reports.

Boosie was recently on Baller Alert’s “Sesh W/ Shirley” where he talked about his mother chastising him for the Instagram video he made regarding the 12-year-old.

“That’s just how I felt. People gotta understand that’s how I feel … Even my momma got on my a–, yesterday. My momma called me early in the morning and got on my a–, talking about, ‘Stay off social media! That’s they family! You stay out people’s business …’” Boosie said.

“But I was just speaking how I felt. Everybody got their own opinions in life. Everyone feels a certain type of way about certain things … When the kids involved, it’s tender to my heart.”
