Odell Beckham Jr. is beyond tired of y’all questioning his heterosexuality. And to be honest, same. The football star made it clear that he’s not gay — again — on Instagram recently, following comments on a post of his new Calvin Klein underwear ad.
One user commented, “Boy look gay as hell.” Another said, “He low key gay tho.”
“Yallll chilllll mann damnnnn! It be a lot of y’all sayin sus and alll the other comments that realllly be a direct reflection of who u are! Im straight! Like beyond it,” Beckham wrote.
“If I sit here and defend myself y’all gon say im tryna defend myself, if I sit there and say nothin yalll gon say ‘seee he didn’t say anything.’ I’m good wit me. Which is dumb straightttt… Period.
“I don’t neeed to say this shxt no mooooo! Half y’all girls in these comments. This the last time ima break this shxt down for y’all.”
Beckham’s comments come not even a month after the last time he addressed the speculation in an interview with GQ. “Honestly wasn’t offended,” he said. “I've never once had no problem with anybody who has their own personal life that they live. I have friends who are gay. It was almost more funny to me. I almost messed with them even more. It's like when someone gives me an ultimatum, I'm usually always going to go to the opposite way of what you want me to go. So when they would say that, I would almost mess with them even more. I have no problem with anyone's sexual orientation.”
Though he said he doesn’t really care if people think he’s gay, he does take issue with why he’s been called gay in the past, whether it’s being close with other men or doing something “feminine” like dancing.
“So someone can't be happy, someone can't be dancing,” he said. “‘Oh, he's always around guys, he's never around girls.’ I just don't want you to see what woman I'm with, and I don't want you in my personal life. I always try to keep my personal life my personal life. I feel like I don't owe that to anybody.”
Maybe folks will leave him alone now. But probably not.
