Odell Beckham Jr airplane video has been circulating on social media.
Following a recently surfaced video showing him being ejected from an American Airlines flight in November, Odell Beckham Jr. has issued a statement.
Earlier on Thursday, the 30-year-old NFL free agent tweeted that he can’t address everything in this world; it’s stressful.
Beckham stated that he has kept to himself and stayed out of trouble since the Super Bowl.
The most challenging thing for him was to let someone tarnish his name, so after the video went public and sparked reactions on the internet, he decided to speak up.
Implying that those who know him are well aware of who he truly is, the wide receiver suggested that the incident does not reflect his real character. He mentioned that everyone has an opinion about things they weren’t involved in.
Beckham wrote: ‘Aside from those who don’t know what they’re talking about, my least favorite thing about the world is that we can edit any video to make it look GOOD or BAD. Our current world is amusing.’
Beckham concluded his Twitter outburst by posting a photo of his son, Zydn Beckham, bathing.
What occurred in the video?
Police were observed entering the plane and approaching Beckham during the incident on November 27 in body cam footage from the Miami-Dade police department, which was shared by the local Miami news station WPLG Local 10 and confirmed to be genuine on Thursday.
According to flight attendants, Beckham, who was traveling in first class, was dozing off and disregarded instructions to fasten his seatbelt.
They called the police to escort Mr. Beckham off the plane out of concern that he was seriously unwell and that his condition might deteriorate over the planned 5-hour journey, as stated by Det. Artemis AC Colome in November.
Officers asserted that the former L.A. Rams player resisted but was requested to leave the aircraft.
Beckham responded, “That’s great,” after one officer threatened to “deplane everyone” from the aircraft, including him if he persisted in refusing.
Several passengers expressed frustration towards Beckham as they disembarked the plane.
Beckham retorted, “You’re going to wait 40 minutes, and I’m going to be on a private plane home.”
The 30-year-old wide receiver was removed from the aircraft at around 9:30 a.m. after refusing to comply with safety regulations.
According to Beckham’s lawyer, Daniel Davillier, who spoke to ESPN, the incident occurred while his client was sleeping and was instigated by an overly zealous flight attendant.
He stated, ‘Mr. Beckham was never disruptive or aggressive. He was ready to wear a seatbelt, but the flight attendant insisted on asserting the right to kick Mr. Beckham off the plane.’
