Guess he didn't get the joke

Detroit, MI - A Michigan man who suffers from a rare disease is suing a trio of celebrities, including former NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal, for mocking him on social media earlier this year.

Jahmel Binion, of Warren, filed a lawsuit in Macomb County on Wednesday alleging that O’Neal, NBA guard Trey Burke and rapper Waka Flocka Flame caused him intentional infliction of emotional distress, invasion of privacy, general negligence and defamation in connection to the April incident on Instagram and other social media platforms, reports.
