Shaquille O'Neal laughs as he announces his retirement from NBA at a news conference in Windermere

NBA Legend Shaquille O’Neal, Utah Jazz player Trey Burke, and rapper Waka Flocka Flame were all named in a defamation suit today after mocking a man with a rare facial disorder on social media. Hit the jump for details.

According to TMZ:

Jahmel Binion posted a selfie back in April which Shaq and Waka eventually reposted with mean-spirited captions … clearly making fun of his face.
Jahmel suffers from a disorder called hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia — it causes limited hair growth, missing teeth, and facial deformities.

As we reported … once Shaq found out about Jahmel’s condition he took down the post, got in touch with Jahmel and apologized. He tweeted … “Made a new friend today when I called and apologized to Jahmel Binion. Great dude. #alwayslearning #MYBADCUZ.

You’re probably asking why Binion would still look to sue after receiving a formal and public apology. Binion stated in an interview that:

“When they said sorry, I felt like they were saying it to get the pressure off of them for being considered ‘bad people”

We wonder how Shaq and the others will respond to the lawsuit! Story Developing.
