Odell Beckham Jr.'s Lawyer Fiercely Defends NFL Star After He Gets Booted From Plane


In light of the incident, Odell Beckham Jr.’s attorney Daniel Davillier released a statement defending his client against allegations that he refused to cooperate during the flight. According to the lawyer, Beckham was simply asleep when he was awakened by the crew and told that he needed to get off the plane for not wearing his seatbelt. “He was informed that it was too late, and that either he would have to get off the plane or everyone would have to deplane,” said Davilier (via Twitter). He also stressed that Beckham was neither “disruptive nor combative,” and was willing to comply with the safety protocol, but the “overzealous flight attendant” insisted on having him removed from the flight. “This incident was completely unnecessary,” concluded the lawyer. “Sleeping on a plane should not be a cause for removal from a flight.”

Beckham himself also appeared to address the incident in a series of tweets, saying, “Never in my life have I experienced what just happened to me… I’ve seen it alll.” “I COULD NOT MAKE THIS UP,” he also wrote, before describing the incident as “comedy hr.” Meanwhile, a video of Beckham being escorted by officers in the airport has since made the rounds on Twitter, with the uploader who claimed to be on the same plane as Beckham saying he was indeed “unresponsive and unruly” during the flight. “Not cool man,” said the disappointed netizen.
