Dwyane Wade Calls Out Trolls For Slamming His Son's Crop Top And Nails

"I’ve been chosen to lead my family not y’all."

Former NBA star Dwyane Wade has taken to social media to hit back at trolls for directing cruelty towards his family after his wife Gabrielle Union shared a Thanksgiving snap of their family.

In the photo, Wade stands with Gabrielle, their daughter Kaavia James and his second-oldest child Zion who wore a cropped top and sported long, white nails.

Most people wrote sweet comments on the snap, but some Instagram users criticised the father for allowing his son to wear the outfit and have his nails done. One user even wrote they “lost all respect” for the father.

Wade took to Twitter to address the haters directly, writing, “I’ve seen some post-Thanksgiving hate on social about my family photo. Stupidity 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 [and] a smile!”

Fans quickly responded with lovely comments, praising the father for loving his children as they are.

Wade has previously shared snaps of his family supporting Zion at Miami Pride, the sportsman was unable to be at the parade himself as he had a basketball game in Toronto. It was very clear, however, how much support Zion has from his family.

In an Instagram story, Wade wrote, “Wish I was there to see you smile kid!”

Sadly, Wade received backlash at the time, telling Variety in June, “I don’t really talk about it much because it’s Zion’s story to tell.”

He added, “I think as a family, we should support each other. That’s our job. And my job as a father is to facilitate their lives and to support them and be behind them in whatever they want to do.”

The basketball star went on to say, “This is my job as a father… I’m very uneasy about accolades that come from supporting my kids or the negativity that comes from it. I’m doing what every parent has to do.

“Once you bring kids into this world, you become unselfish. It’s my job to be their role model, to be their voice in my kids’ lives, to let them know you can conquer the world. So, go and be your amazing self and we’re going to sit back and just love you.”

He may not like the accolades, but if he encourages other parents to support their children in the same way then he’s doing a great job!

Jason Derulo Needs You To Know He Didn't Photoshop That Viral 'Anaconda' Pic

Don't lie, you zoomed!

Jason Derulo went viral over the weekend after sharing a poolside snap of himself that left pretty much nothing to the imagination.

Fans began flooding the comment section with many saying they couldn’t help but zoom in on the photo. Derulo even commented, “Don’t lie.. did you Zoom?”

One fan jokingly responded, “Didn’t have to. But I did anyway.”

Some fans joked he should change his name to “Jason DeRULER” instead, with others saying something was “fighting to get out”.

However, there’s since been speculation the singer might have enhanced the pic with a bit of Photoshop.

Speaking with TMZ, Derulo set the record straight, saying, “Photoshop? Photoshop? Don’t make me [pull it out]. There’s not enough women in this area. Just know that us Haitians, we look different.”

He added, “It was in Bali. I honestly [didn’t] feel like that was going to be my most liked picture when I woke up this morning. I posted the motherf***er very early. It was [a photo] from months ago. It was not even something that I just did.”

So, there you have it, it’s all real – congrats Mr Derulo!

Derulo, who appears in the new Cats movie, has also recently responded to the backlash the trailers have received recently due to the strange look of the characters.

Speaking with Confidential, he said, “I don’t think I have ever seen such a polarising reaction from any other trailer ever.”

“I knew that was what it would be from the jump and that is what I hoped it would be because that is what I felt like was the magic of the stage play.”

He added, “It is unlike anything that you’ve ever seen before so everything that has been said about it being creepy or left and weird, it is all of that and more.”

The star recently appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show and gave her a little cat acting lesson, watch it below:

I’ll never be the same after watching that.

People Are Calling Out This Haunted House For Being A Glorified 'Torture Chamber'

The 40-page waiver is absolutely nuts.

McKamey Manor, the ‘world’s scariest haunted house‘, in Summertown, Tennessee is being accused of being a glorified torture chamber with the actors allowed to physically harm those who take part.

In case you don’t believe how extreme this ‘haunted house‘ is, participants are asked to sign a 40-page waiver, undergo a sports fitness test, provide a doctor’s note, a safe word, proof they have medical insurance and a background check.

The waiver, shared by Facebook user Bethany Mcpherson, reveals that participants agree to the fact “a nail may pierce their hand”, “their hand may be smashed with tools”, and that they may “have a plastic bag on their face which could possibly cause suffocation, blackouts etc, and participants will not hold MM responsible or libel”.

Mcpherson shared the waiver, writing, “LETS KEEP EVERYBODY SAFE. If you’re thinking about going to the McKamey Manor aka ‘the worlds scariest haunted house’ that’s been shared around, just read these, this isn’t a haunted house, this is a torture chamber where they’re somehow legally allowed to torture people. Almost 100% of people who go end up with PTSD and need intense therapy. They’re allowed to whatever they want to you.”

One of the points on the waiver reads, “Participant fully understands and agrees that once participant enters MM there is no quitting unless serious physical or psychological injury is present.”

Other points suggest participants’ nails will be removed from their nail beds, they might be given medication to induce hallucinations, they might even end up having their teeth “extracted without Novocain” and “they may be fish hooked, which may inadvertently cause rippage to the mouth area”. Oh and they “will be participating in various medieval torture devices such as knife throwing while strapped to a spinning wheel”.

What kind of person thinks of these things?!

It’s so terrifying that anyone who makes it through the 10-hour ordeal will be awarded $20,000, not one person has ever earned that money.

Mcpherson also shared a Facebook comment that read, “They’ve balded people not by shaving, but by ripping hair out. They’ve pulled teeth and fingernails out. They have a history of r*pe and sodomy. They make you eat rotten food and if you puke, they make you eat that too.

“They don’t obey the safe word. They break bones. The man literally hires past violent criminals with both assault and sexual crimes. And they start the torture WHILE you’re reading the [waiver] so you can’t complete it.

“They also have a history of taking your allergies and using it AGAINST you. And the money is if you pass 10+ hours.”

McKamey Manor has a YouTube channel where they show viewers what the experience is like, here’s one he makes everyone watch if they want to do the tour:

The ‘haunted house’ featured on Netflix’s Dark Tourist hosted by David Farrier where he told viewers, “You really don’t want to do [this],” adding people flock to be tortured and terrorised “just for the fun of it”.

On the show, Farrier took part in the experience and spoke to owner Russ McKamey, who doesn’t charge people to take part, but does ask for a bag of dog food.

Farrier asked, “Is he a showman or psychopath?” To which McKamey responded, “I am an entertainer, a comedian, and this is nothing but showbiz to me. I just love entertaining.”

News.Com.Au reports there’s a waitlist of over 24,000 people who want to visit the Manor.

At the time the show was shot McKamey said he’d never had a participant die, but one person did suffer a heart attack in 2008.

In the episode, Farrier joins one of McKamey’s victims, but after being blindfolded and having a metal piece put into their mouths to keep them open, he calls it quits.

“I felt so terrified I couldn’t even think straight. Russ’s techniques are horrifically effective,” he said.

The cameras weren’t allowed to follow the victim who continued on to the Manor, however, a body cam showed him being dunked violently into ice cold water and being told to hold his breath for 30 seconds. After a few rounds of this, he also quit.

When he exited the manor he told the cameras, “Don’t come here.”

You don’t have to tell me twice!
