Dwyane Wade says he restricts comments on daughter Zaya’s Instagram for her mental health: ‘We've decided not to allow the hate into her comments’

Dwyane Wade is not letting the internet disrupt his daughter's peace and fans are here for it.

The retired NBA player took to Twitter Thursday to explain why commenting has been restricted under Zaya's Instagram.

The conversation started after a seemingly well-intentioned user asked Dwyane if they could comment under Zaya's pictures to show support. (The initial post has since been deleted.)

Wade quoted the tweet explaining that her comments have been limited to reduce the spread of hate.

"For Zaya's mental health and privacy we've decided not to allow the hate into her comments," he tweeted. "Thank you for wanting to spread and send her love," he wrote.

The replies were filled with fans backing up Wade's stance and thanking him for putting Zaya's well-being first.

"PERIOD! And that's on prioritizing your child's well-being. She doesn't need our comments telling us she is non stop serving in every posted photo bc she has a solid, real support system at home and we love to see it," shared one user.

"As someone who too would love to comment, I wholeheartedly honor & appreciate the way you and Gabby show up 2 protect her. I'm a 20yr member of the ballroom scene & it brings me much joy to see a different and protected life experience for a black girl of trans experience," tweeted another.

Others took the opportunity to assure Wade that his daughter has a community of internet supporters who are more than happy to cheer her on IRL.

"LOVE this protection for baby girl. I'm hope she knows she has a whole online community of support from a lot of us on here regardless," tweeted one user.

"This is how you parent. A lot of people could learn how to safeguard their children like Dwyane Wade does," wrote another.

Limited comments aside, Zaya is still making major moves. In September, she shared a few looks from her campaign with Tiffany & Co with the caption, "Dreams become reality."
