“I’m honest, I’ve never voted in my life. This is my first time voting.”
That’s Shaquille O’Nealdropping a Shaq-sized bombshell — confessing he’s NEVER voted in an election!
… UNTIL NOW!!
“I’ve never voted before, America,” Shaq said this week on Wednesday on The Big Podcast… “But, now I’m doing all these voting campaigns and ya know one thing I never like to do, is be a hypocrite.”
Yep, the 48-year-old NBA legend says he felt weird pushing voting initiatives like his #MyStartingFive challenge — which helps people register to vote for Election Day 2020 — while sitting on the sidelines.
So, he decided to actually vote this year — by absentee ballot!
“In other words America, I voted for the first time and it feels good.”
Shaq’s co-hosts were in complete shock — especially after Shaq was virtually sitting next to his buddy President Barack Obama, at Game 1 of the NBA Finals — who obviously didn’t get Shaq’s vote back in the day!
Election Day is Nov. 3 — make sure you get out there!!!
