Shaq apologizes for rogue 9/11 truther post; says he fired the firm that posted it

National Basketball Association great Shaquille O’Neal has added conspiracy theorist to his impressive resume, but he says it was all a terrible mistake.

The man affectionately known by fans as Shaq posted a 9/11 conspiracy video to his website and Facebook page Thursday with the caption “This might make you think twice … what do you think?”

The video was accompanied by an article that read as follows:

“September 11, 2001, was one of the worst days in American history. Thousands of lives were lost both in the attacks and after, during the war. There’s been talk about how people think that the terrorist attacks that happened that day were an inside job. We hear one thing from the media and government agencies, but are we getting the truth?

“There were two impossibilities that occurred in this footage that was close-up of the attacks on the South Tower. The video was slowed down so that you can see it clearly.

“Supposedly the materials that the buildings are made of wouldn’t allow a plane to slice through it as cleanly as flight 175 did. The second impossibility is something easily missed, even though you’ve probably seen the replay a million times when it happened. The guy in the video did a screen grab so you can see it perfectly. The way it appeared just wasn’t right.

“So, what do you think…was September 11 an inside job? Or, was this video tweaked to make us think that it was?

“Check out the video below and tell us what you think. Don’t forget to share it with your friends on FACEBOOK.”

The article has since been removed from Shaq’s website and Facebook. An apology from the athlete was issued late Friday:
