SAG HACKS SHAQ FOR DISNEY AD

Shaquille O'Neal may have just carried the Los Angeles Lakers to an NBA championship, but he's being called for a technical foul by the Screen Actors Guild. Soon after L.A.'s Game 6 win over Indiana on Monday, O'Neal taped an "I'm going to Disneyland" spot, paying no mind to SAG's current strike against advertisers. "We are very disappointed about the ad," SAG rep Todd Amorde told Variety. "In a strike situation, there are no special circumstances. A scab is a scab." Shaq's agent Leonard Armato said proceeds from the ad will go to charity. At least NBC has no beef with Shaq, nor Tiger Woods for that matter: The Peacock Network rode the NBA Finals and Woods's dominating U.S. Open golf victory to a ratings win for the week. read more
