Fan Bullied by Shaq Creates Anti-Bullying Campaign

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Jahmel Binion is a native of Detroit who suffers from a rare disorder. He was recently bullied on Instagram by former NBA player Shaquille O’Neal, according to MLive. Now, Binion’s new “Hug Don’t Judge” anti-bullying campaign is receiving a ton of support.

Binion suffers from ectodermal dysplasia. Binion found a picture of O’Neal on Instagram mocking Binion’s condition.

“I was confused,” Binion said. “I was thinking ‘Man, he’s supposed to be this role model, someone everyone is supposed to look up to.’ If Shaq does something like this, then (everyone who follows him) will think ‘We should do this.’”

Binion has tried reaching out to O’Neal, but has not heard back from the former NBA player. Binion also sent pictures to MLive of others mocking him, including rapper Wacka Flocka Flame and former Michigan basketball player Trey Burke. Binion said he has not talked to any of these people and is not sure how they found his picture. He said he has never interacted with any of them previously.

Binion was born with this condition. It produces abnormalities with the sweat glands, hair, teeth, face and nails.

Binion created a Facebook page for “Hug Don’t Judge” and by early this week it had almost 17,000 members. His Instagram page has almost 900 followers.

“It feels like I’m not alone,” Binion said. “People are supporting my side of the story.”

Binion said his message to O’Neal is:

“Why?” Binion said. “And I’d let him know I’m starting this ‘Hug Don’t Judge’ campaign. Maybe he could be a bigger person and support or contribute to my campaign.”

Binion said that even though it is difficult going out in public, he will not live in fear.

“You get a couple laughs here and there, but I don’t pay attention to it anymore because it has been happening for so long,” Binion said.

    In verbal bullying, there is no actual contact, but the harm done can be just as large. In these cases, the bully says derogatory things to his/her victim, who usually becomes too intimidated to respond, and ends up taking repeated abuse. In social bullying, a person or people of greater social status excludes someone else. Remember guys that anyone who told you that you`re no good, they’re no better. I suggest a safety application that your child could use if he/she in trouble. It really help me, and I hope this will help you also. http://safekidzone.com/#!/page_home
