    Default Shaq makes fun of a fan with a disability




    Former NBA player Shaquille O'Neal is facing sharp criticism from fans after posting a photo to his Instagram account making fun of Michigan-native Jahmel Binion, according to MLive.

    The 23-year-old lives with ectodermal dysplasias, a rare condition that causes reduced ability to sweat, missing teeth and fine, sparse hair, according to the National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasias. At least one in 5,000-10,000 babies are born with the condition.

    Because of the condition's physical effects, Binion said he knows how it feels to be the brunt of a mean-spirited joke.

    "I've been getting teased since I was yay tall," he told FOX 2 News. "People laugh at me, stare at me."

    The photo has since been deleted from O'Neal's Instagram account, which has nearly 600,000 followers. Anger and disappointment has been pouring in from fans on social media after the image was shared a couple weeks ago.

    The cyberbullying also prompted the National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasias to address the issue. The organization wrote an open letter to O'Neal on its website Monday, stating its community was "terribly disappointed by the hurtful image." The foundation also called the incident an opportunity for O'Neal to create positive change regarding the condition and those it affects.

    But positive change is already blossoming from the offensive photo.

    Binion has created the HUG DON'T JUDGE Facebook page to encourage positivity and shed light on cyberbullying. The page has grown enormously since its creation, and now has more than 4,600 members. The online group has also provided a space for those affected by ectodermal dysplasias around the world to share stories and photos from their experiences with the condition.

    Join the HUG DON'T JUDGE Facebook page, or learn more about ectodermal dysplasias on the National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasias website.

    Celebrities are cunts

    I'm sure Shaq will fake it for publicity and find the guy some signed merch and it's all good
    Bushido is realised in the presence of death.
    This means choosing death whenever there is a choice between life and death.
    There is no other reasoning.

    actually he probably didn't know the fan had the disability. he probably thought somebody was sending him a photoshopped picture or someone was making a face at him so he did the same face back.

    i don't think he would do that knowing the guy was disabled.
