Odell Beckham Jr. Responds to Lena Dunham's Criticism and Apology

Here's what the Giants' star wide receiver had to say.

Published September 7, 2016

Lena Dunham slamming Odell Beckham Jr. last week for not paying enough attention to her at the Met Gala paved the way for the Girls star to receive the most scathing, epic Twitter backlash.

It was so bad that when Dunham apologized to the New York Giants' star wide receiver for projecting her insecurities and making false assumptions, Twitter still wasn't having it.

Silent through all the controversy, though, was Beckham himself ... until now.

"I don't have enough information to really speak on it," a rather mum Beckham told Complex regarding Dunham's crazy comments during a private party at the GQ penthouse in New York City on Tuesday night. "We'll see what happens from there. I never want any problems with anybody in this world."

Interesting. Beckham more than had the green light to destroy Dunham with a clapback for the ages, but he didn't take it.

Perhaps Beckham, 23, is concentrated on more important things, as his Giants kick off their 2016 season this Sunday afternoon against their rival Dallas Cowboys.
