When Shaquille O’Neal shared a picture of himself from a hospital bed, his followers became worried.
The seven-foot-one-inch native of Newark, who is a Hall of Famer and has four NBA championships to his name, was sometimes seen plugged into equipment. Naturally, this led many people to worry what was wrong.
O’Neal captioned the image with, “I’m always watching @TurnerSportsEJ and @Candace_Parker miss y’all,” and comments started pouring in.
O’Neal then made the decision to go public with the true cause of his hospitalization, but he did so in his own unique way by making fun of it by saying he was undergoing “Brazilian butt lift” treatment, which made people laugh.
“To all the people who are concerned. First let me start off by saying thank you,” he began his March 20 Instagram post. “And lastly i am fine. Just had to get some BBL work done aka #hipreplacement. but yes i am fine no need to worry.”
As expected, this gathered the amusement of many. “Lol Sending get well wishes for a speedy & healthy recovery,” one of his fans commented. Meanwhile, another dubbed the NBA player “Cheekquille O’Neal.”
After being confronted about his appearance by a close friend, O’Neal was able to reduce a large amount of weight.
He is regarded as one of the best athletes of all time due to his outstanding career.
We hope he recovers quickly.
