Rapper Boosie Badazz blasted Planet Fitness for denying him entry to the facility over transphobic remarks he made about Dwyane Wade’s 12-year-old child, Zaya.

Boosie posted a since-deleted video to his Instagram feed Thursday, slamming the manager of the gym.

“Manager who was gay refused to let me n Planet Fitness because of my past actions on social media about gender etc. Do not support Planet Fitness,” he wrote. “They racist! They got roaches! N They shower water don’t get hot! Get out ya feelings lil’ b–ch!”

Boosie’s son, who goes by the name @tootie_raww, also took to Instagram in support of his father. “F–k Dwayne [sic] and his son, idc he gay. My pops said what he said. Stop sending me that. I bet you won’t say it to our face.”

A spokesperson for Planet Fitness released a statement to the media, saying: “Planet Fitness does not tolerate harassment or discrimination of any kind. In this instance, a guest was asked to leave after refusing to comply with gym policies and harassing club staff. We are the home of the Judgment Free Zone and as such, we have policies in place to ensure that we maintain a non-intimidating, welcoming environment for all of our members where everyone feels accepted.”

As Urban Hollywood 411 reported earlier this week, Boosie took issue with Wade’s Tuesday interview on Good Morning America,  in which the NBA star discussed his son’s decision to come out as a transgender female.

“I gotta say something about this sh-t. Dwyane Wade, you’ve gone too f–king far, bro. That is a male. A 12-year-old. At 12, they don’t even know what they next meal gonna be. They don’t have s–t figured out yet. He might meet a woman at 16 and fall in love with her, but his d-ck be gone,” the rapper said in a video posted on Instagram Tuesday.

During Wade’s GMA interview, he told Robin Roberts, “Zaya started doing more research. She was the one that sat down with us as a family and said, ‘Hey I don’t think I’m gay.’ And she went down the list and said this is how I identify myself — I identify myself as a young lady. I think I’m a straight trans, because I like boys.”

“It was a process for us to sit down with our daughter and find out who she is and what she likes and not put something on her — we decided to listen to her and she’s leading us on this journey,” he added.

Wade will share the journey of Zaya’s gender identity in a new documentary titled D. Wade: Life Unexpected premiering Sunday, February 23, at 9 p.m ET on ESPN.
