Not only Shaq but other poeple have joined in the bullying of a handicapped man. This makes me sick. To those that much has been given much is expected. He's a professional athlete that millions look up to he should conduct himself accordingly. This is absolutely disgusting.
Heres the news clip.
That doesn't excuse what he did. He's not sorry he did it he's sorry he got caught or he would have never done it to begin with.

What a jerk! He did call the guy and apologized.
"Made a new friend today when I called and apologized to Jahmel Binion. Great dude," the tweet said.

I think this comes more from ignorance than intentional bullying.
It's very easy on the internet these days to see a 'meme' of a someone pulling a face and not necessarily realize that, that person could have a disability.
I suspect Shaq would apologize once he sees this and realize how much he's actually offended the young man - I'd like to think he would anyway.
