Odell Beckham Jr. fires back at critics of Josh Norman tweet


Odell Beckham Jr. apparently has decided to fire back at Twitter trolls who criticized him after he appeared to himself troll Josh Norman during Sunday’s Carolina Panthers-Seattle Seahawks game.

Norman came up short in an attempt to break up a touchdown pass from Russell Wilson that got the Seahawks within 10 points in a frantic comeback bid that ultimately came up short.

Beckham Jr. shortly afterward issued this tweet.

In no way can it be confirmed that the New York Giants wide receiver was in fact trolling Norman on the play, the timing of the tweet nevertheless makes it at the very least suspicious, especially in light of the enmity that exists between the two in the aftermath of the sad spectacle that played out during the Giants-Panthers game in late December. Beckham Jr. was ultimately suspended for one game due to his antics and Norman was fined over $26,000 for his role in the ugly events of that day.

Beckham’s apparent trolling of Norman this past Sunday not surprisingly prompted a backlash on Twitter, with a majority of the responses containing a variation on trolling Beckham Jr. over how the Giants aren’t even in the playoffs.

This prompted Beckham Jr. to finally fire back and on Tuesday, he let his critics have it in a series of emjoi-filled tweets that argued for more creativity.

That’s a lot of emjois, that’s for sure. This of course prompted further responses from critics, many of which are of the “Viewer Discretion is Advise” variety.
