At this past Met Gala, New York Giants superstar Odell Beckham Jr. said nothing, yet gets bashed by actress Lena Dunham.

A certain actress did not take too kindly to Odell Beckham Jr. at this year’s Met Gala.

Lena Dunham, an actress, and well known feminist, recounted her encounter with Odell Beckham Jr. at the Met Gala this past May.

This is what Dunham said, according to an Amy Schumer interview, via her Lenny Letter series:

“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 f*** 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.”


Dunham’s criticism of Beckham seems awfully harsh, considering he didn’t actually say anything to, or about her. Looking at Dunham’s body of work, there is a good chance that Beckham doesn’t know who she is. Chances are, a 23-year old wide receiver has never seen Tiny Furniture or This Is 40.
