Celebrities Decide to Mock Disabled Man on Instagram

| by Emily Smith

After posting a selfie to Instagram, Michigan man Jahmel Binion witnessed a wave of celebrities posting mock selfies of his image.

Binion suffers from ectodermal dyslplasia, a condition that reduces a person’s ability to sweat, leads to missing teeth and causes abnormal hair growth. Though he has been teased all of his life for the condition, he never thought celebrities would go out of their way to do the same.

Binion claims that people have recognized him from Shaquille O’Neal and former University of Michigan athlete Trey Burke’s Instragram. Rapper Waka Flocka Flame also joined in on the selfie imitations.

The photo on O’Neal’s Instagram has since been removed.
