“Oh my God, WHAT is that?” and “I could’ve gone my whole life without seeing that” is what a lot of folks are saying about what Shaquille O’Neal did Thursday night to an unsuspecting TV audience on TNT.
The former Lakers star freaked out his co-hosts as well as viewers when he unveiled a right foot that looked like it has endured decades of shoes of the wrong size. To put it bluntly, it wasn’t a pretty site at all. 🙁
It went down during the halftime report between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics when he made the grotesque revelation.
(Thanks a lot, Shaq.)
“I don’t do pedicures,” O’Neal said, stating the obvious.
As the Daily Mail put it, “slipping off his canoe-sized shoes and sleeping bag sock, he proudly showed off decrepit toenails that wouldn’t have looked out of place on a well-preserved mummy.”
As you can see in the video above, his big toe was perplexingly bent a right angle to the rest of his foot, while his baby toe had been squashed into non-existence.
As he wriggled the stunted deformities, his fellow broadcasters wailed in unified revulsion: “That’s disgusting!”
Let the clowning begin!
“What is that thing where your big toe should be?” Johnson asked. “It looks like a baked potato and four toes!”
Smith thought TNT’s video-editing gurus had Photoshopped the feet, because “C’mon, man.”
“That’s disgusting,” Barkley added, factually.
No surprise: The Internet reacted similarly, but with GIFs instead.
Even Shaq’s own son Shareef felt the need to chime in.
‘Whoever saw my dad’s toes on TV, I’m sorry,’ he apologized, with a number of crying emojis.
