Shaq Owns Up To On-Air Fart And TNT Crew Loses It

Former NBA great Shaquille O'Neal, now a TV analyst, fanned his seat with a piece of paper and admitted to flatulence during a TNT halftime show.

Shaquille O’Neal blamed “bad lasagna” for farting during a TNT halftime show on Wednesday. (Watch below.)

Kenny Smith, Charles Barkley and Ernie Johnson struggled to keep it together after Shaq, who once owned up to an elevator fart during the 2016 Super Bowl, quipped that he went to the bathroom “right here in my seat.”

“My boy Slice got me some bad lasagna,” Shaq joked.

“Are you kidding me?” asked Barkley.

“Why don’t you just light a li’l fire over there?” Smith said.

“That’s the last thing you want to do,” Johnson added.

Shaq, who said it was “too late” to go to the bathroom, later joked that his favorite cartoon character is “Fart Simpson” and he said he was rocking a “doo doo brown”-colored suit.

Johnson attempted to get on with the show following the comments, but the talk continued focused on Shaq cutting the cheese.

“Who in America would ever sit on television and let everyone know they passed gas, other than him?” asked Smith.

“I didn’t pass gas, I farted,” O’Neal said.
