Odell Beckham is an international rockstar, the likes of which the NFL has never seen before. He’s NBA famous and has been living under the unrelenting mega watt spotlight for several years now, and has made some public missteps along the way.
In last night’s episode of The Shop, Beckham summed up his frustrations with fame by telling a story about an encounter with a Giants fan who wanted an picture while he was in a hurry. Beckham passed on the pic and the fans – who identified themselves as long time season ticket holders – immediately rushed to Twitter to slam him.
Beckham hasn’t done himself any favors in some cases, but it’s hard not to feel where he’s coming from here. In his position, sometimes you can’t win.
