Shaq Gets Kicked Off The Force
This is what you get when you get on the mic and spit crab rhymes about ex-teammates; rhymes that were expletive-laced and, quite frankly, reeked of jealousy: you get your badge revoked. Just ask Shaquille O’Neal.
Now that his petty performance has hit the mainstream, O’Neal is learning people are responsible for the things they say and sometimes, the things you say have consequences.
The World Wide Leader has more:
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said the Phoenix Suns center’s use of a racially derogatory word and other foul language left him no choice. Arpaio made Shaq a special deputy in January and promoted him to colonel of his largely ceremonial posse earlier this month.
“I want his two badges back,” Arpaio told The Associated Press on Tuesday.
I can just imagine Kobe Bryant’s reaction right now. He’s sitting on a beach somewhere with his hot wife, laughing at O’Neal and the results of The Big Jealousy not being able to keep his mouth closed when someone puts a microphone in front of it.
By the way, Shaq’s law enforcement supervisor, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, sounds like he’s a blast:
Arpaio, who describes himself as “America’s Toughest Sheriff” and is best known for feeding jail inmates green bologna, clothing them in pink underwear, and making them work on chain gangs, said he didn’t expect his actions would teach Shaq a lesson. But he hoped he learns that as a role model who wants to someday be a full-time sheriff, he needs to know his words matter.
Green bologna? What the hell is this? Dr Seuss?
