Michael Irvin on Odell Beckham: “Everybody Goes After Him With Gay Slurs”
Unless you’re new to the internet, you know these gay rumors have been swirling around Odell for a while now. The guy is an absolute beast on the field, but some videos on the internet have social media and apparently NFL players thinking Beckham might be a little ‘suspect’.
Odell admitted to Michael Irvin that he hears trash talk about it every single week and it finally got to him during the matchup vs. the Carolina Panthers this past Sunday.
“He deals with it a lot. For some reason, everybody goes after him with gay slurs. He’s a different kind of dude,” Irvin said. “He has the hairdo out, he’s not the big muscular kind of dude. The ladies all love him. He’s a star. I wonder why people are going in that direction. It blows my mind. I told him he can’t let stuff that people say get to you.”
“I don’t think I’ve ever really seen the animosity towards a receiver ever in the league right now what’s going towards this young kid,” Irvin said.
Asked why he thought Beckham acted like he did today, Cortland Finnegan: “Maybe it’s in his blood. Maybe it’s female-related.”
