    NBA PR keeps getting worse:

    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.'

    Damn, thats pretty ****ed up.

    I don't know about Waka, but Shaq and Burke have a obligation to opologize to him as they are professionals representing the nba and espn.

    Would love if this is justification for a much overdue ejection of Shaq from the TNT panel. Every since he joined, that show has gone from Emmy-worthy to Sesame St. Does he contribute anything besides making stupid sounds while the highlights are shown?

    Not surprised by Shaq's behavior here, it's been obvious to me for many years that he had a couple screws loose.

    He is a racist and thinks he is better than everyone. Why would he treat some poor guy this way.

    He's incredibly immature, seems pretty obvious.

    Just because Shelden Williams sucks at basketball doesn't mean he's disabled.

    Shaq has always had the mentality of a high school kid.

    He is immature. Thats all there is to it.

    Pretty much. He's always been the guy to dish the trash but can't take it and when he does try to you can tell he holding back.

    Shaq has gotten away with a lot of stupid comments over the years. People give him a pass just because he's "funny."
