Basketball legend Shaquille O'Neal got himself involved in a minor controversy after he posted an image of urinal etiquette that sparked an antigay response.
In the cartoon, posted early Thursday, a man decides to use a urinal next to another man unloading his bladder, even though several other urinals are available. O'Neal wrote under the image, "This is an automatic fight in my book.......LMFAO."
One commenter wrote "GAAAAAYYYY !!!!!," while another wrote, "Meat gazer!" In the cartoon, the man who urinates close to the other man has a somewhat limp wrist.
As Huffington Post points out, O'Neal has previously shown support for gay rights and even participated in an anti-bullying public service announcement sponsored by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. Read more here.
