Right now, Odell Beckham Jr. is making headlines for all of the wrong reasons. The former NY Giants superstar, as many of you recall, was removed from a plane in late November. People were wondering just what exactly happened, as Beckham took to Twitter to say he’s never seen or been part of something like this.
Earlier in the week, body cam footage was released of the OBJ incident and it’s not a good look for him at all. Per the American Airlines crew, Beckham “appeared to be in and out of consciousness” and they ultimately asked him to get off the plane – as did police officers.
In the video footage, Beckham was understandably upset, but he ended up insulting an older passenger too who asked him to follow orders and get off. OBJ took serious issue with that.
Body-cam footage of Odell Beckham Jr. plane incident is a rough look
"“You gon’ wait 40 minutes and I’m going to be on a private plane home,” an angry Beckham told the man. “Yeah, with your fat ass. Get your ass off the plane for a second. Enjoy the cheese board on the way home with your ugly ass.”"
Beckham, who at one point took of his pants as well, ended up getting on a private plane, but all this could have been avoided. It’s also a terrible look that he insulted the unnamed gentleman who was also on the same flight as him. All in all, Beckham caused a ton of drama and others were upset too.
Just when you thought Beckham indeed had matured, this video pops up and it makes people realize that maybe the same kind of headaches from his first stint with the Giants would have returned had general manager Joe Schoen signed him to a new deal.
He visited with the Giants this fall and the hope was that something would get done. He remains a free agent, though, despite Jerry Jones claiming that Dallas would ink him for the end of the regular season and the playoffs.
Beckham is focused on suiting up next season and doing so at close to 100 percent following his ACL injury. A lot of general managers will end up seeing this video and likely decide to stay away. We’re hoping Schoen is on that list.
