After TMZ Sports broke the news of Bronny James’s medical emergency on Tuesday, one user referenced Shareef O’Neal’s own heart issues in an awful attempt to poke fun at the situation.
“Bronny started hanging with Shareef and now look,” the tweet read. “@SSJreef stay yo ass away from him he’s destined for greatness not overseas 😆”
O’Neal got wind of the jab and he clapped back with a passionate response.
“That is very disrespectful of you to say,” Shareef said in a since-deleted tweet. “I’ve been around Bronny for a very long time before this happened … I’ll pray for you. You need help … sick that you would even say something like that 🤦🏾♂️🤦🏾♂️🤦🏾♂️#dummy.”
