Odell Beckham Addresses Lena Dunham’s ‘MET Gala’ Drama Remarks

Published: Thursday 8th Sep 2016 by David

‘Girls‘ creative Lena Dunham found herself on the receiving end of social media’s sting recently when she seemed to scold the athlete Odell Beckham Jr for not paying attention to her at this year’s ‘MET Gala.’

Where she did it? During a “conversation” with her pal Amy Schumer launched to promote the latter’s book ‘The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo.’

I was sitting next to Odell Beckham Jr., and it was so amazing because it was like he looked at me and he determined I was not the shape of a woman by his standards. He was like, “That’s a marshmallow. That’s a child. That’s a dog.” It wasn’t mean — he just seemed confused.

The vibe was very much like, “Do I want to **** it? Is it wearing a … yep, it’s wearing a tuxedo. I’m going to go back to my cell phone.” It was like we were forced to be together, and he literally was scrolling Instagram rather than have to look at a woman in a bow tie. I was like, “This should be called the Metropolitan Museum of Getting Rejected by Athletes.

Her confusing comments saw her mocked and slammed on Twitter and, after enough social media users caught wind of them, saw her becoming the #1 trending topic on the aforementioned platform.

This week, Beckham has addressed the matter.

The athlete’s reps opted not to respond to Dunham once her remarks were published.

Undeterred, a ‘Complex’ reporter made it his mission to score a response when he bumped into Beckham at GQ party hours ago. He succeeded.

I don’t have enough information to really speak on it. We’ll see what happens from there. I never want any problems with anybody in this world.

Some time later, the sports reporter Jordan Raanan caught up with the amiable star.

    Lena DunHAM is a scourge. The sooner we stop listening to these white “feminists”, the better we’ll all be off.

    Lol a white woman upset because a black man did NOT look at her? That must be some kind of new reverse white privilege or something lol.

    • OMG Logic!!! September 8, 2016

      What do their races have to with absolutely ANYTHING???

      Black people simply will not focus on anything other than race. They are keeping racism alive and well.

        You clearly don’t know or care about the thousands of cases in which white women have assumed black men wanted to sleep with or r*** them and had innocent men thrown in jail because of it. It isn’t about dwelling in the past but recognising its relevance today.

    I like the way he handled it. People need to stop entertaining her and her attention seeking behaviour. There is some american women who try to act all quirky and innocent and really they are just trouble makers.

  6. No favs, just here for the music September 8, 2016

    She really comes off as hyper sensitive and incredibly insecure. Also kind of delusional, entitled and a bit crazy. She made this s*** all her head. Wild.
