    Ex-NBA star Shaquille O'Neal has apologized to a Detroit man with a rare disorder for making fun of his appearance in an online post.

    Best known as Shaq, the former professional basketball player announced the apology in a Twitter message Tuesday.

    "Made a new friend today when I called and apologized to Jahmel Binion. Great dude," the tweet said.

    O'Neal followed up Wednesday with a tweet that said: "Had the opportunity to talk to Jahmel Binion yesterday and apologize about the post on IG!"

    People want blood. Do you think he should receive the same treatment as Sterling? A lot of people think so.

    A lot of people have been saying this is worse than Sterling. Do you think a persons race effects their views on this?

    If they are Republican whites, yes.

    Er'body else, not so much. It's not worse; it was a flub up, it seems.

    Not according to the liberals on the Huffington Post. Hundreds of people on that website think he should get a worse punishment.

    Authors or comments? And we know they're liberal because...?

    Most are likely caucasian still whining on Donald having his "freedom of speech violated" and being banned for life for having views they likely share with him, and are just using this to get back at blacks or say we get preferential treatment in the NBA and the US in general, which we know ain't true. It's set up to be lose/lose for us because whites felt embarrassed and frustrated that blacks were given THAT much(Donald's banning) in their minds. It's a way to keep us in our place and make us seem like the racists and bad guys in this whole thing. I know, as many blacks did, they were waiting for something like this to happen JUST to cry foul. It's all really very pathetic.

    Yeah, this is how I felt when I first seen this happening. The comments I read were from self proclaimed liberals.
