Wild footage shows NFL’s Odell Beckham Jr insult passengers, escorted off plane amid ugly meltdown

New bodycam footage released by the police shows officers interacting with NFL free agent Odell Beckham Jr. on an American Airlines flight in November after he shouted profanities at passengers, removed his pants, and finally got escorted off the plane.

The incident happened as the flight was taxiing at the Miami International Airport on Nov. 27, upsetting passengers and crew. Beckham told the flight crew that he was recovering from clubbing and wound up calling a passenger on the flight “fat” and “ugly,” according to TMZ.

The Miami-Dade Police Dept. released the footage this week. In it, you can see cops boarding the American Airlines flight at Miami International Airport and then speaking with flight attendants who told them Beckham was unresponsive despite being instructed multiple times to put his seatbelt on. They eventually asked for him to be escorted from the plane.

“He’s mad at us because we called you,” the attendant said. “We said ‘we’re worried about you.’ I don’t know if he’s going to deteriorate when we’re in the air.”

“They said he took off his pants,” an officer stated in the footage. “He was in underwear. He told the [flight attendant] that he’s been clubbing all night. He’s either drunk, or both: pills and drunk.”

When Beckham was approached by officers, he stated, “I’ve never had this happen to me.”

The police told him, “We’re going to have to deplane everybody on this plane, and then you’re still going to get off.”

Beckham responded to the officer, “That’s fine.”


As passengers were deplaning, one of them told Beckham to just get off which enraged the Super Bowl champ.

“Shut the f*** up,” Beckham yelled at the man seated behind him.

Another passenger also ticked him off.

“You can look at me all you want,” Beckham told the passenger. “This s*** don’t bother me.”

“You’re everything wrong with the world,” Beckham commented in the video. “Looking at me to get off a plane, for you. I would never, ever in my life get off the plane for you. Specifically you. Maybe everybody else, I would get off the plane.”

“You gon’ wait 40 minutes and I’m going to be on a private plane home. Yeah, with your fat ass. Get your ass off the plane for a second,” he snarled. “Enjoy the cheese board on the way home with your ugly ass.”

Beckham was eventually escorted off the plane by police. His attorney claims that Beckham simply fell asleep and a flight attendant just blew the situation out of proportion, according to the Daily Mail.

Beckham later remarked that he learned a lesson from the whole incident, “Put my seatbelt on before you fall asleep.”

He has not faced any consequences for the incident. The flight was originally scheduled to take off at 9:30 am but was delayed for almost an hour and a half before passengers were forced to deplane because of Beckham.

The NFL player tweeted the following Sunday, “Never in my life have I experienced what just happened to me… I’ve seen it all..”

“Never. In. My. Life,” he tweeted. “I COULD NEVER MAKE THIS UP.”
