Shaq Showed His Feet Live On Air And People Were Traumatized

There are some infamous TV moments that will always go down in history. Like that time a contestant on The Newlywed Game accidentally talked about anal sex, or this amazing moment from Survivor.

Then there are some gross things that you just can’t unsee, and I blame Fear Factor for a lot of those moments. For instance, I’m still traumatized by watching people eat extra large dung beetles or boiled antelope brains.

And the latest in unseeable, unforgettable on-air grossness doesn’t come from a nasty food challenge or a misunderstanding about newlywed sex.

It comes courtesy of Shaq’s feet.

The NBA Hall of Famer put his size 22 foot on full display during the Cavs game this past Thursday night and well, people were horrified.

Like, really horrified.

They just couldn’t comprehend his big toe.

They couldn’t get over how mangled they looked.

Some people made unwelcome food comparisons…

Others thought they looked ancient.

Others just wanted him to get help.

His feet became part of a cruel, worst-case scenario game.

They were so bad, his own son went on Twitter to apologize for them on behalf of the family.

As mangled as they look, respect to Shaq for being brave enough to put them out there on TV, knowing full well he’d be roasted. I would get upset if someone even pointed out my stretch marks, let alone a toe that looks like a can opener.

Teen Takes The Shoes Off His Own Feet After Seeing Homeless Man With Holes In His

Labor Day is typically Summer’s last stand. It’s a 3 day weekend for most, which means we have 3 nights and 2 days to go out and enjoy ourselves, with one full day to recover before tackling a shortened work/school week.

A few people out in Louisville, Kentucky opted to spend their Labor Day weekend differently.  Fourteen year old LaRon Tunstill, better known as RonRon locally, was taking part in a barbecue set up by PurpMe (People Uplifting Real People) to feed the homeless, when he noticed a gentleman walking along the side of their spread.

He sparked a conversation with the man, and while they were talking, saw the tattered pair of shoes he was wearing.  Jason Reynolds, the founder of PurpMe, saw the shoes. “The soles were completely gone.  His toes literally touched the ground.”

RonRon immediately took off his brand new Nike Air Jordans and gave them to the man, who was reluctant to accept them at first. “At first he was like ‘no, I can’t take these because these are too expensive.’ I told him, ‘take it’ because it’s what God wanted me to do.” RonRon told WAVE.

Reynolds, still in awe of the exchange, spoke:

“It was life-changing to see that powerful moment, Just a year before, he (Tunstill) was getting into trouble and now you see that he’s changing. He used to get in a lot of trouble when I first met him.”

After RonRon’s gift, Reynolds started a GoFundMe page where 100% of the donations would go to helping children in the area.  

“I always tell the kids one simple act is all it takes. Maybe you can’t change the world but you can change someone’s world.”
