On Monday, O’Neal posted a picture of himself with renowned singer Justin Bieber. The duo had met at an event where their images were captured. Shaq captioned the post “@justinbieber I owe you one homie.” Although they were some lovely photos, fans had a hearty laugh at the post.

Everyone who saw the post, couldn’t help but notice the humongous difference in height between the pairing. While O’Neal is 7’1, Bieber is a mere 5’9. Fans made their presence felt, mocking the difference in stature. While one commented, “Still wondering how the camera did not crop you out of the picture. Must have been a good camera,” another remarked, “Who is this little man?” It was a hilarious belittlement of the pop star. Have a look.
