Despite backlash, Boosie Badazz is not backing down from his criticism of Dwyane Wade's parenting.

During a sit-down with Baller Alert, the 37-year-old rapper addressed his controversial comments about the retired basketball star's 12-year-old daughter Zaya, who recently came out as transgender.

"You received backlash for statements about Dwyane Wade's daughter—" the interviewer said before being cut-off.

"His son," Boosie interjected. "That’s just how I felt. People gotta understand that's how I feel ... Even my momma got on my a** yesterday. My momma called me early in the morning and got on my a**, talking about, 'Stay off social media! That’s they family! You stay out people's business ...' But I was just speaking how I felt. Everybody got their own opinions in life. Everyone feels a certain type of way about certain things ... When the kids involved, it's tender to my heart."

He added, "Once you're a celebrity, you gotta be ready for what comes with being a celebrity ... You gotta be ready for the hundred eyes and all that stuff."

While Boosie acknowledged that it wasn't his place to comment on Dwyane's decision to support his own child, the "Wipe Me Down" rapper said, "when I feel you're wrong, you're wrong. People have told me how to parent my children when I was wrong .."

Later in the interview, Boosie surprisingly showed a hint of regret, but only after the interviewer brought up his recent claim that his local Planet Fitness denied him entry because of his transphobic comments about Zaya.

"I feel like they're gaining up on me now. I should've shut my a** up," he admitted. "Everything happens for a reason ... A lot of people feel what I said, completely. I got a lot of bad backlash, but I got a lot of people who feel the same way."
