Odell Beckham Jr. responds after FULL video of him being removed from a flight in November surfaces


Odell Beckham Jr. has responded to criticism after the full video of his November 27 confrontation with flight attendants in Miami was released, showing the NFL free agent cursing at fellow passengers while battling an alleged hangover.

Beginning his tweet with three yawning emojis, Beckham wrote that he ‘can’t address everything in this world, it’s exhausting.’

‘Errbody got an opinion on situations they weren’t involved in,’ the 30-year-old Beckham continued. ‘All u can do is kno who u truly are. Purell only kills 99.9% of germs…there’s always gon be a lil left over.’

As was reported back in November, Beckham was asked to deboard from an American Airlines flight after flight attendants struggled to wake him and he refused to put on his seatbelt, according to Miami police. However, Beckham’s attorney Daniel Davilier, released a statement at the time insisting flight attendants were to blame for the hour-and-half delay.

Newly released police footage shows Odell Beckham Jr. belligerently cursing at passengers aboard a taxiing American Airlines flight at Miami International Airport and refusing to leave the aircraft after allegedly telling the flight crew that he was recovering from a night at the club.

But it wasn’t until this week that the public saw police body camera footage from the incident, in which Beckham is seen belligerently cursing at passengers and refusing to leave the aircraft after allegedly telling the flight crew that he was recovering from a night at the club.

The plane’s crew also told officers that the wide receiver removed his pants at his seat prior to take-off on the November 27 flight.

The newly released police footage from aboard the aircraft shows a drowsy Beckham arguing with fellow passengers who were upset to deplane over his refusal to return to the terminal.

‘Shut the f*** up’ Beckham yelled at one man seated behind him after being told to ‘just get off the plane.’

Another passenger soon became the focus of Beckham’s wrath.

‘You can look at me all you want,’ Beckham said to the passenger. ‘This s*** don’t bother me.

‘I would never, ever in my life, get off the plane for you – specifically you,’ Beckham continued. ‘Maybe for everyone else, I would get off the plane.

‘You gonna wait 40 minutes, and I’m going to be on a private plane home, with your fat ass. Get your ass off the plane.

‘Enjoy the cheese board on the way home with your ugly ass.’

Beckham added another tweet Thursday, referencing his ‘cheese board’ joke: ‘I kno who I am. Period. All the rest and opinions really don’t matter to me. Have a blessed day and enjoy the (cheese emoji) board!’

He also argued that the footage was selectively edited: ‘But…..if u press that button and bring a certain energy. Do NOT be surprised when u get that same energy back.’

Beckham has not faced any consequences over the incident, which came as he was set to do a three-city free-agency tour as he continued to recover from off-season knee surgery. The former LSU star has been out of action since tearing the ACL in his left knee while playing for the Los Angeles Rams in last February’s Super Bowl win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

Reaction to the footage has been mixed, with some Beckham supporters blaming flight attendants for pressuring him to put on his seatbelt.

Others were more critical of Beckham’s behavior.

‘There are many rules while flying but here are two of the most important,’ one fan wrote.

‘1. Keep your pants on

‘2. Put your seatbelt as soon as you sit down.

‘If you don’t follow those, and are asked to leave, just leave,’ the post concluded.

Another Twitter user added: ‘Still not ok to think you’re above the rules just because you make millions. It’s not hard, you board a plane, you fasten your seatbelt for take off and landing.’

The footage begins with police, fire rescue, and the flight crew checking on Beckham, who appears groggy and annoyed.

‘Do you know where you’re at sir?’ one voice is heard asking.

‘You’ve been unresponsive’ Beckham is told later.

A discussion between the flight crew and fire rescue personnel ensues, with the fire crew official telling attendants that the decision to remove Beckham from the aircraft was up to them.

‘He told her he just came from a club,’ one male flight attendant said, referring to Beckham and a female co-worker. ‘And he’s taken something.’

One female flight attendant shared her concerns about traveling with Beckham.

‘He’s mad at us because we called you,’ she said. ‘We said ‘we’re worried about you.’ I don’t know if he’s going to deteriorate when we’re in the air.’

Police were called by concerned flight attendants on Sunday after the 30-year-old Beckham was reportedly 'coming in and out of consciousness'

One officer then explained the protocol for dealing with a passenger that refused to get off the plane.

‘We have a procedure that we have to follow,’ the officer said. ‘If he refuses to get off, we’re going to have to deboard everybody.’

In a departure from his exchanges with fellow passengers, Beckham was respectful with officers, shaking their hands and expressing his frustration in a low, raspy tone.

For that matter, both police and EMTs were respectful towards Beckham as they tried to determine if he was having any health issues.

‘What we’re going to do is just check your blood pressure… and your blood sugar,’ an EMT said. ‘Sorry you’re having a bad day.’

At one point an officer checked with his colleague to make sure his body camera was operating: ‘Is your camera on? Because this is going to be a media circus. They’re all going to want to know what really happened.’

Beckham’s identify as an NFL star surfaces throughout the footage.

‘He’s Odell Beckham,’ said one officer.

‘Oh my God!’ fire rescue crew member exclaimed on the jetway. ‘Can I get his signature?’

One officer asked: ‘Suspended, though, isn’t he?’

His partner then corrected him: ‘No, he’s not playing. Nobody’s picked him up.’

The video ends with officers explaining to Beckham that his checked baggage was flying ahead to Los Angeles while he rebooked his travel itinerary.

The flight was scheduled to take off at 9:30am from Miami on November 27, but was delayed for nearly an hour and 30 minutes before. Passengers were forced off the plane after Beckham refused after multiple requests.

Beckham, meanwhile, tweeted the following Sunday: ‘Never in my life have I experienced what just happened to me… I’ve seen it alll..’

He then tweeted ‘Never. In. My. Life’ and ‘I COULD NEVER MAKE THIS UP.’
