Shaquille O’Neal: A Beat Celtics Player, As Disclosed During Justin Bieber’s Roast

Now that, my friends, is how you beat Shaq.

In a much-needed attempt to salvage his dwindling reputation as a heartthrob pop star, Calvin Klein wunderkind and rebel without a cause Justin Bieber took part in a roast on Comedy Central, which aired Monday night.

To celebrate the occasion, Comedy Central had its usual roasters/comedians like Chris D’Elia, Natasha Leggero, and Jeff Ross, plus some other celebs thrown into the mix including host Kevin Hart, actor Hannibal Buress, SNL’s Pete Davidson, known criminal Martha Stewart, rapper Ludacris, concerning human Snoop Dogg, and NBA star Shaquille O’Neal.

While Bieber was intended to be the ultimate butt of the joke throughout the special, the entire dais of guests were targeted, too. Shaq in particular was laughed at a lot, probably because he’s an easy target with his overgrown features and all.

Here, Chris D’Elia cast a fair joke at Shaq about his final season with the Celtics:

He said:

People don’t realize this, but those “I Can’t Breathe” T-shirts? They were about Shaq’s last season on the Celtics.

D’Elia’s joke was not even the funniest by far, as Martha Stewart actually stood out as the ultimate savage. Your fair lady of the Food Network has an underrated edge, and proved it during Bieber’s roast as she confidently wore leather leggings and prevailed as the best teller of sex jokes.

Meanwhile, Shaq continued to take some punches, and laughed out loud through the whole thing. Oh, Shaq.
