When A Celebrity Mocked His Condition, The Young Man Had THIS To Say!

Just days after basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal publicly mocked him on Instagram, Jahmel Binion says ‘I’m more positive than I could ever be.’

Binion, a 23-year-old from Michigan, has a rare genetic condition that cause symptoms such as “reduced ability to sweat, missing teeth and fine sparse hair.”

Some people would of lashed out against O’Neal, but Binion responded with an anti-bullying Facebook page, “HUG DON’T JUDGE.”

“Please be respectful, be positive and share this with the world,” he writes on the page. “Time to make a difference.”

O’Neal deleted the photograph from Instagram and apologized for his ignorance on Twitter by saying that he is #alwayslearning.

God teaches us to love one another as we love ourselves. Hopefully, O’Neal’s experience will be a reminder to others to educate themselves and think of God’s word before making a snap judgment about someone’s appearance.

In the mean time, Binion is fighting hate with kindness. You can join his HUGS DON’T JUDGE Facebook group here.
