It's not every day that a move from New York to Cleveland increases the spotlight on a professional athlete. But that's what's going on with Odell Beckham Jr., who was traded from the dormant Giants to the ascending Browns.
He recently sat down for an interview with GQ and addressed the rumors about his sexual orientation which have always swirled the internet.
“I’ve never had an opportunity to talk about this,” Beckham replied. “Honestly wasn’t offended. I’ve never once had no problem with anybody who has their own personal life that they live. I have friends who are gay. It was almost more funny to me. I almost messed with them even more. It’s like when someone gives me an ultimatum, I’m usually always going to go to the opposite way of what you want me to go. So when they would say that, I would almost mess with them even more. I have no problem with anyone’s sexual orientation.”
Odell is the second major athlete to address gay rumors this month, following Dwight Howard.
