(Newser) – A Michigan man with a rare genetic disorder is seeking more than $25,000 in damages from Shaquille O'Neal, NBA player Trey Burke, and rapper Waka Flocka for making fun of his pic on social media, reports the Detroit Free Press. Jahmel Binion has ectodermal dysplasia, a condition that can cause facial deformities and an inability to regulate body temperature, among other symptoms, according to the National Institutes of Health. Shaq did apologize with a repentant tweet and phone call, according to TMZ, but Binion isn't buying the good-guy act. "When they said sorry, I felt like they were saying it to get the pressure off of them for being considered ‘bad people,'" he tells the Macomb Daily.
