Recently, Shaq has kept himself very busy. For instance, the former NBA player was only yesterday in Sonoma, California, where he was able to DJ following the NASCAR race. Overall, there was a lot of jubilation because Martin Truex Jr. won the race handily. Fans, though, were praising the legend in a very different way on social media. In the end, this was because some recent direct messages (DMs) between him and a woman called Ariana Josephine were exposed. She is the Home Depot girl who went viral, for those who don’t know.
Josephine gained fame when she took to social media with a photo of herself in her Home Depot outfit. She made it clear that she enjoys working this job and would never start an OnlyFans. This received a ton of support, however, it quickly devolved after she made some unsavory comments about sex workers. Subsequently, Shaq entered her DMs to tell her that she is doing nothing wrong. “Don’t let them people bother u,” he wrote. He then said to have a great day and to let her boyfriends know he says “hi.”

Of course, a lot of people took this as Shaq trying to shoot his shot at the young woman. However, he quickly made sure to dispel these comments. “Just uplifting people that’s what the diesel do baby I uplift people, google me,” he wrote in DJ Akademiks’ comments section. Clearly, he was a bit annoyed with everyone trying to project onto him, and he let those feelings be known. Ultimately, it is good to see Shaq standing up for himself in these situations. Although, there is no doubt that Home Depot girl is getting even more clout than before.
Of course, Shaq has a bit more time on his hands now that TNT is done covering the NBA for the year. The Finals are always on ESPN, much to the dismay of a lot of fans. Regardless, this is a time when Diesel can do whatever he wants. That includes DM’ing women online, at his own discretion.
