Odell Beckham Jr. stands in solidarity with Sha’Carri Richardson.
As Beckham Jr. was in November, the sprinter was recently kicked off an American Airlines flight for failing to comply with a flight attendant. Richardson filmed her experience with a separate flight attendant and posted it to Instagram, where Beckham weighed in in the comments.
“WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTTTT 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂. BUTTT IM THE A-HOLE,” Beckham commented.
In a second comment, he wrote, “TELL ME GIT CUT US FLIGHT FOR NO REASON 😂😂😂😂.
In the video, Richardson, 22, told a flight attendant that a man gave her instructions in an “unprofessional manner” and that “his hands were all over my face”. When another passenger said this heist was going to cause him to miss a connecting flight, she said, “You’re worried about a connection when a grown man disrespects me.” She was eventually informed by an officer that the captain wanted her off the flight.
In a video released by Miami police of the Beckham incident, he was also criticized by another passenger for costing the rest of the plane by resisting his ejection, and was equally unconcerned about the concern.
Richardson was suspended from Team USA’s 2020 Olympic team after testing positive for marijuana following her victory in the 100-meter trials, which she ran in 10.86 seconds.
“Tell me if I would be wrong to sue the airline @americanair, not only did the man threaten me, but also an innocent bystander who just wanted a picture with me. At the beginning of the video, you can hearing a Caucasian man state that he doesn’t care being a man that the flight attendant is bullying a woman,” Richardson wrote in the caption of the video. nothing to help the situation and this stewardess got the applause when i got off the plane despite being pretty serious the disrespect i received wouldn’t have happened if i was the one of them.
“One of them even said good luck with your ban (I see he took the time to research but not stand up for what’s right) soooo @americanair that flight attendant name was John and he refused to say his last name. However, he and the lady you see standing next to him looked at me 💅🏾 also if I see videos posted from this theft, watch.”
