Odell Beckham Jr calls passenger ‘fat, ugly’ in body cam footage of in-flight incident

Odell Beckham Jr. called a passenger “fat” and “ugly” – new police camera footage of him being removed from a plane at Miami International Airport on November 27.

The wide-angle receiver of the free agent is seen in the video verbally abusing another passenger. The footage also shows flight attendants remembering how he appeared unresponsive and was not wearing pants when they tried to force him to fasten his seat belt.

The footage was released this week by the Miami-Dade Police Department. The footage opens with the police boarding an American Airlines plane and walking up to where the football player was sitting in first class, as the other passengers look on.

One of the officers asked Mr. Beckham: “Sir, are you able to get up? Can you get up please? Is everything OK?”

Mr. Beckham wakes up, startled and seemingly confused, saying that he “probably slept deeply” as the police tell him why they are there.

He answers several questions from the officers, and the NFL player gets law enforcement approval before the flight attendants argue that he wasn’t wearing pants before the police arrived. Assistants also claim that Mr. Beckham was drunk.

“Do you know how many times we shook him to buckle up?” the worker tells the police on the recording. “Many times, many people.”

“It’s a five-hour flight, he shouldn’t be doing that,” another employee adds, saying Beckham said he had been to nightclubs the night before.

“He’s tired,” police said, but flight attendants and the captain pushed back, arguing that Beckham should be removed from the plane, claiming he was “belligerent and disobedient.”

Mr. Beckham persists even after talking to the captain. The other passengers have to get off the plane as airport staff discuss wide receiver.

“Can I get his signature?” one of them asks Everyday Beast.

Mr. Beckham both apologizes and confronts the passengers as they leave the plane.

“Just get off the plane,” says one passenger, and is joined by others who say the same thing.

“Fuck you,” says Beckham.

“It’s never happened to me,” he tells one policeman. When offered, he refuses a seat on the next flight.

“We’re going to have to get everyone off this plane, and then you’ll have to get off anyway,” the officer tells him.

“Okay,” replies Mr. Beckham.

“You can look at me all you want,” he tells passengers as they exit the plane.

“Just get off the plane,” says one of them.

“Nothing can ever be said, never,” says Beckham, leaning forward. “You are wrong with the world. You’re looking at me to get off the plane for you. I would never in my life get off a plane for you, specifically for you. Maybe everyone else, I’d get off the plane. This shit means nothing to me. Wait 40 minutes and I’ll be on a private plane home. Yes, with your fat ass. Get out of the plane for a while.

“Eat a cheeseboard on the way home with your ugly ass**,” he adds.

Later, Mr. Beckham is alone on the plane talking on the phone.

“Then the white man will look at me and say ‘just get off the plane.’ B****, now you made it my goal not to get off the fucking plane. You couldn’t even make that shit up,” he says.

Mr Beckham tells police: “a white man in a red shirt won’t let me pass him. That’s all I’m asking for.”

“Don’t slip on it, brother,” says the police. Reassuring Mr. Beckham, the police add that he is coming “from a place of love”.

Applause and cheers greet Mr. Beckham as he returns to the airport where passengers are waiting.

No charges were filed in connection with the incident, Everyday Beast notes.

“He was literally the last passenger to leave the plane,” said Carlos Guana, a business class passenger.

Daniel Davillier, Beckham’s lawyer, said the incident was “unnecessary”, arguing that it was provoked by an “overzealous flight attendant”.
