Odell Beckham Jr. took to Twitter to go off on the Giants organization as well as New York general manager Dave Gettleman and coach Pat Shurmur and fought back against the notion he’s a locker room problem. 

Things started after someone tweeted Beckham a story by HotNewHipHop with the headline “Giants GM Claims ‘Culture Problem’ Led To Odell Beckham Jr. Trade.” In the piece, Gettleman seemed to make allusions that culture problems in New York’s locker room have been eliminated since Beckham was shipped to the Cleveland Browns for first- and third-round picks and safety Jabrill Peppers last month.

“This was by far one of the funniest things I’ve seen today!” Beckham wrote in response to the headline. He added:

Beckham also responded to Gettleman saying on multiple occasions that the Giants didn’t sign the talented wide receiver just to turn around and trade him.

He also explained that it wasn’t his choice to not be on the sidelines while injured, it was Shurmur’s.

After he was (mostly) done tweeting about the Giants, Beckham expressed how happy he is to be in Cleveland with the Browns.

At the end of the rant, Beckham defended his right to go on one and go on the offensive against his largely anonymous detractors on Twitter.

“That’s alllll, damn when I wanna voice my opinion (like everybody else can do) and back myself up its a problem,” he wrote. “Like im suppose to get walked over forever! ‘Shut up n dribble’ no sir not me.”

He then had one more thing to say:

The Browns and Giants don’t have a game against each other in 2019.
