New York Giants superstar Odell Beckham Jr. shocked NFL fans on Sunday when he celebrated a touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles by getting down on his hands and knees and pretending to be a dog taking a piss.

Pretty much nobody liked this celebration. Fox announcer Joe Buck called it a “classless celebration,” and Giants owner John Mara was reportedly “very unhappy.”

When asked about the stunt after the game, Beckham told reporters, “I’m a dog so I acted like a dog. I don’t know if the rulebook said you can’t hike your leg. [The referee] said I peed on somebody, so I was trying to find the imaginary ghost that I peed on. But I didn’t see him.”

But what did Beckham mean when he said he was a dog? That’s what CNN editor A.J. Willingham wondered. And eventually she came up with the theory that it might have been in reference to President Trump‘s infamous “son of a bitch” speech. After all, if a bitch is a female dog, that means players are dogs.

On Monday afternoon, Odell responded to Willingham’s tweet. He confirmed that her theory is correct, and that his much-criticized touchdown celebration was in fact a shot at the President.

Knowing that the celebration was a political statement does not absolve Beckham from criticism. But it certainly puts the incident in a different light and gives us something more to think about.
