Shaquille O’Neal & Waka Flocka Mock Disabled Man On Social Media

  • Pin It

via My FOX Detroit:
Jahmel Binion of Madison Heights, Mich. has the rare disorder *ectodermal dysplasia, a condition characterized by a reduced ability to sweat, missing teeth and abnormal hair growth.

He tells FOX 2’s Randy Wimbley he’s been getting teased his whole life, but never thought he’d be bullied by celebrities after posting a “selfie” on social media.

He says people began recognizing him from a picture on Shaquille O’Neal’s Instagram account. Former University of Michigan athlete Trey Burke and rapper Waka Flocka Flame are also said to have also joined in on the teasing.

The photo on Shaq’s Instagram has been taken down.

Wimbley contacted Shaq via Twitter, officials with Burke’s team, Utah Jazz, and Waka Flocka Flame’s record label. No one responded.

Binion says this has inspired him to start an anti-bullying campaign called ‘Hug Don’t Judge.’

*Ectodermal dysplasia:
The Ectodermal Dysplasias are a group of hereditary, non-progressive syndromes in which the affected tissue derives primarily from the ectodermal germ layer. The skin, its derivatives, and some other organs are involved. A predisposition to respiratory infections, due to a somewhat depressed immune system and to defective mucous glands in parts of the respiratory tract, is the most life threatening characteristic of this group of disorders.

    This is sad. He wouldn’t be making those faces if that was his son or daughter he would join the world wide union of Ectodermal Dysplasia sufferers and want funding to be made from the govt to eradicate the syndrome. Stupid Shaq. Shaq should never make fun of anyone’s look he’s no prized turnip.

    I hate seeing things like this. It makes me so mad when people poke fun at others about things they can’t change. Shaq is no price either so he needs to chill.

  • Christine Chrissy Hatcher

    He needs to be ashamed of himself….smh

    Waka Flaka really making fun of someone….hmmmm has he ever heard how dumb and uneducated he sounds when he speaks. And Shad please heard you have lil penis syndrome. ..sad world we live in.

    How do we expect bullying to be taken as a serious and wrong thing if Shaq and Waka Flaka (whom ever that is), make such nasty and public statements about a man who has no control over his situation? I think both of these men should be professionally made up to look like Jahmael and walk around a large city where they know no one and see how people react to them. They could not tell anyone what they’d be doing or who they are. Then describe their day.

    Will the NBA ban Shaq for life for disparaging remark and actions about disabled black people?

        Equally unimpressed, Mr. Anonymous.

      Of course not. No money is at risk. They’re nothing more than greedy, simple-minded kindergartners. Other kindergartners can get away with childish behavior because, well because they are children.

    All I can say is these men should be so ashamed do themselves. How they can stand to look at themselves in the mirror after hurting another person like this and then not having the courage to stand up to it is so cowardly, I am ashamed for them.
    As for Jahmel Binion, what a brave, wonderful young man. Post as many selfies as you want. God doesn’t make junk. He did a perfect job when He made you. It shows by everything you say. Hopefully, one day, these men will have the courage to step up and apologize for what they’ve done and help you out with your bullying foundation!

    Real class act shaq. As if you’re a hunk of all that. The classy guy is Jahmel Binion who can rise above and make something positive out of this pathetic public behavior. And it should also be obvious, neither money nor fame can by you class or a brain. I assume the other idiot also has both money and fame, at least within his circle of losers who LIKE this kind of thing on social media. Thankfully, I’ve no idea who he is. Hopefully, I’ll forget his name entirely after this dies down.
