Claudia Jordan Shares Thoughts On Zaya Wade: I Hope There Are No Regrets Later On
Dwyane Wade announced last year that Zaya Wade, born Zion, identified as a female.
Since then, dozens of celebrities and political figures have shared their thoughts, including Michelle Obama, who said she was proud of the teenager during a recent conversation on Instagram.
Now, Claudia Jordan is also weighing in on the topic. She said on Cocktails With Queens earlier this week,
“I think two things can be possible at the same time. I think the fact that — what Michelle Obama was doing was encouraging to a child. She was looking out for someone — an individual — and other kids that are like that.”
“On the other hand — I think some people are not properly articulating how uncomfortable they may feel about a child being pushed. They may think that child is being pushed to the front of the agenda — pushed to be the face of this. Now if Zaya is 1000% okay with that, then I’m all for it. It’s really none of my business, but I feel like it’s our job to talk about these things.”
“I just hope that there are no regrets later on. I just want Zaya at the end of it to not feel and pressure. Like if Zaya ever felt like, ‘You know what? I don’t feel this way anymore.’ Does Zaya feel this uncomfortable, ridiculous amount of pressure to not be able to go back? Not saying that she wants to, but I just feel like [it’s] such a young age to have so much pressure on her shoulders.”
