It's been more than a month since Boosie Badazz came under fire for his transphobic rant against Dwyane Wade's support for his 12-year-old child Zaya coming out as a transgender girl. But he's not stepping down.

The rapper hopped on Instagram Live on Monday (March 23), where he responded to a comment about his opinion on the LGBTQ community. "I got gay people around me, I ain't got nothing against no gay people," he said. "I got gay people work for me, I got gay people in my family. All I said [about Zaya] was don't do that to him."

"I ain't got nothing against gay nobody. I love people," he continued. "I don't hate white people, I don't hate black people. I don't hate people. All I said was don't do that to him. That's all I said."

"At 11 or 12 I don't know if I'm going shopping at Dillard's or Footlocker. Ya heard? I don't know if I'm going to college or staying. Big decisions I can't make yet," he concluded.

In his original post, shared to Instagram, Boosie pleaded to the NBA star: "Don’t cut his d--k off, bruh. Like, bruh, for real, if he gonna be gay, let him be gay. But don’t cut his d--k off, bruh. Don’t dress him as a woman, dawg. He’s 12 years old. He’s not up there yet. He hasn’t made his final decisions yet. Don’t cut his f---ing d--k off, Dwyane Wade."
