It’s impossible to hate Shaquille O’Neal.
Good guy @SHAQ saw this fella buying an engagement ring, and decided to pay for it himself. 👊

He strolls into a jewelry store, sees a young man getting ready to make the purchase of his life, quietly hands the cashier his credit card so the kid can start planning for his divorce. What a fucking guy.
I remember when I bought my first car. I saved my part-time job money for 2 years and gave my dad 200 a month for insurance during that 2 year period. I bought my car and had the insurance covered and then he gave me all the money BACK so I could keep saving for school. He never told my mom and didn’t ask for anything in return because Jimmy’s a mench.
Shaq has his massive fingers in a million money pies and he’s worth about $700 million he’ll never be able to spend. Still, there aren’t many billionaires who engage in random acts of money kindness because most of them are cheap pricks who became rich by being stingy assholes.
Not Shaq. That’s why no one hates Shaquille O’Neal. He gives a shit about the right things.
Some of the most admired men in history have done some seriously questionable shit too, so no matter what you’ve heard about Shaq you have to give someone credit for the good they do in this world, too.
And, the kid has the greatest engagement ring story, EVER.
