New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was quite happy Sunday following a touchdown by Antonio Brown.
It’s not every day you see an athlete celebrating when the opposing team scores. That is unless they just don’t know what is going on. The Pittsburgh Steelers scored a touchdown which put them up 11-0 in the second quarter and OBJ was shown on the sidelines clapping and smiling due to the idea it Brown who hauled in the terrific TD.
Big Ben & @AntonioBrown doing what they do…

Sure, the argument will be made that he and Brown are good friends off the field, but it is just not appropriate to celebrate an opposing team touchdown, especially when your team is trailing. That is the equivalent of a baseball player clapping when the other team hit a home run just because one of his friends hit it.
With little to no surprise, this act got Beckham much heat from Giants fans as well as fans of the sport in general.
