Dwight Howard

I Was Pooping

When Earthquake Hit

The 3.2 earthquake that rocked Beverly Hills this weekend definitely scared the crap out of Dwight Howard.

The newest member of the Los Angeles Lakers was leaving his Bev Hills hotel when we asked how he handled his very first L.A. earthquake, which hit Bev Hills at 3:36 AM on Monday.

"I was in the toilet ... and It shook me off the toilet," Dwight told us.

For the record, 3.2 is WEAK SAUCE ... the Northridge quake that hit back in 1994 was a 6.7 and lasted almost 20 seconds. The Sylmar quake in '71 was a 6.6.

So how does he feel about his new home now that he got his first taste of the tectonic terror?

Check out the clip and find out.

Dwight, What a low life statement to make. Are you a human or a pig?!!!!!! Oops, a pig has more class than you....... With your statement, I'm sure the Lakers are now very proud to have you on their team. Now they know that that brown thing in the field is a turd. YOU!!!!

A 3.2 is nothing...no idea how that would knock someone off a toilet. Thats barely enough to be felt at all.

It's good to get that first quake behind you. My first one I thought someone was under the bed shaking it.

Good riddance!    

Been lots of earthquake swarms as of late in Cali. This sometimes indicates that a big one might be coming. Good luck, Cali. I hope it isn't true.

I've been through 20 earthquakes, up to a 5.5, and a 3-3.5 is nothing. It's like a truck going by outside your house. You notice it and say 'oh, earthquake', and then it stops. His story is total BS.

Yo Superman Dwight Howard get your damn game face on already. Stop acting like your here in LA on a vacation. There is work to be done @ the Lakers and don't f@ck it up like you did in Orlando

A 3.2? Seriously? Try being woken up at 3:17 am by a 5.9 on a three story house. And actually not being woken up by the shaking but hearing first the ROARING of the Earth's guts before feeling the actual shaking. Now that is effing scary.
