Wacka Flocka Flame, and Gold Bond spokesman Shaquille O'Neal
are now being sued for defamation on the grounds of making fun of a guy with a genetic disorder.
The suit, issued by Warren, Mich., resident Jahmel Binion, is in response to an Instagram post from April
that showed Burke mocking the 23-year-old, who has a disorder called hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia, a condition that results in a reduced ability to sweat, abnormal hair growth and missing teeth.
Filed in the Macomb County Circuit Court on July 30, the case references the fact that the disparaging photos were viewed by over 8.4 million people. The pics have since been taken down, though Shaq's can still be seen here
Though Burke, Shaq and Flocka all called Binion to apologize and posted apologies via Twitter
, Binion felt that they weren't being sincere. "When they said sorry, I felt like they were saying it to get the pressure off of them for being considered ‘bad people,'" Binion told the Macomb Daily
The Utah Jazz attempted to clean this mess up in April by offering Binion a complimentary pair of tickets
