Who knew that social media could land you in court?
Such is the case for NBA baller Trey Burke (real name Alfonso Clark “Trey” Burke III). theJasmineBRAND.com has exclusively learned that the Utah Jazz player didn’t believe the selfie he re-posted of a man was actually a real person — let alone someone with a medical condition — and he is demanding the lawsuit filed against him be dismissed.
Famous folk including: Shaquille O’Neal, Waka Flocka Flame and NBA stars Ian Clarke and Burke were sued by a man named Jahmel Binion. Jahmel has accused them of mocking him on social media by re-posting a selfie he took and captioned the photo with mean-spirited comments.
Binion has a rare disorder called hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia — it causes limited hair growth, missing teeth and facial deformities.
The man sued the celebrities for defamation claiming over 8 million people saw the posts on social media and sought damages for the harm they did to him.
