A Hawks fan was so excited to take a selfie with Shaq she started weeping

Thursday May 21st, 2015

Shaquille O'Neal has been retired for a few years but he's still wildly popular.

Shaq was in Atlanta on Wednesday night for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals between the Hawks and Cavaliers. During a break a fan asked to take a selfie with the Big Aristotle and was brought to tears when he said yes.

She remained relatively composed until Shaq gave her a kiss on the cheek, at which point she started all-out sobbing. Imagine how she reacted when Atlanta lost the game. 

"It's hard being a sex symbol," Shaq said when his co-stars started ribbing him.
