Tylenol has released a heartwarming, family centered promo from Gabrielle Union and husband Dwyane Wade to promote its #HowWeFamily campaign. The ad, released by Tylenol on Friday (Dec 16), shows Wade’s blended family celebrating the Christmas season in Chicago, where the former Miami Heat star now plays for the Bulls.
The couple is raising three kids together – Dwyane’s two sons Zion and Zaire (by ex-wife Siobvaughn Funches) and nephew Daphon. Tylenol’s description of the ad on YouTube reads: “No matter what or how you celebrate, or with whom, it’s family traditions and those you share them with that make the holidays special. Watch Gabrielle Union share what the holidays mean to her family as she joins Tylenol in celebrating all the different ways families come together during the holidays.”
But Wade has three biological sons, and some folks want to know why his so-called “break baby” – youngest son Xavier – is not included in the ad. Tylenol, wisely, has disabled comments on the YouTube video and Union’s Instagram also has disabled comments on the promotion. But on other social media sites where the video or photos from it have been posted, folks are questioning why Xavier isn’t included.
But there’s no evidence to show that Union or Wade had anything to do with it. Maybe Tylenol just wanted the family Wade lives with. Maybe Aja Metoyer, Xavier’s mom, who lives in another city, didn’t want to expose her son to any social media harassment.
In 2014, right around this time, Metoyer answered a commenter on her Instagram who called her a ‘hoe’ with a ‘forgotten son.’ The so-called ‘insider” wrote: “Dear Aja, You are such a f***** up h** who got what you deserved nothing but a forgotten son who will never be a important as his other sons…
But when they go low…
Aja responded back: “Dear sweet heart I hope u have a very merry Christmas .. And I hope God answers all ur prayers..Thank u for ur concern for my family however, we’re all adults and my sons father is a wonderful father and takes very good care of my son and if you had your facts right you would know I never wrote a letter you can’t believe everything you read sweetie…May God be with you Merry Christmas.”
Zion Wade, Wade’s youngest son with ex-wife Siobvaughn Funches, (who has not been in any of the videos either, but possibly because she’s contested their divorce and custody agreements numerous times) had his 8th birthday featured in a previous #HowWeFamily promo the couple filmed in 2015.
