Gilmore has stated that Beckham Jr. "is good, but he's not what people think after that one catch."
Last year, Gilmore was able to play against the NY Giants wide receiver and he wasn't very impressed. After the game, Gilmore told The Buffalo News that Beckham Jr. was a prima donna on the field.
“I don’t know what’s up with him," Gilmore said. "He acts like nobody’s supposed to hit him and you’re supposed to let him catch the ball. He’s weird. He gets mad when you play physical with him. He’s weird.
“He’s different. It’s kind of like you’re playing your little brother and he gets mad at you for being too physical with him — throwing a tantrum. I’m like, ‘Man, we’re playing football. It’s a physical game. ... He’s a prima donna. He feels like he’s on top of the world and nobody’s supposed to do anything to him."
Beckham responded with, "I don't think anybody should be talking about what happened after they lost the game," following the Giants win.
There's apparently no love lost between the two as they're now taking their beef to Instagram. Beckham posted a picture making a reception against Gilmore on Instagram with the caption, "It ain't a moment till u make it..."
Gilmore noticed the picture and responded with a photo of his own showing Beckham Jr. not being able to come up with a reception against him. His caption? "It ain't a moment til you make it"
The Giants did win the matchup against the Bills in 2015, but it should be noted that Gilmore and Ronald Darby shut Beckham Jr. down in the game. Beckham Jr. finished the matchup with five receptions for 38 yards. The receiver only had one game with fewer yardage last season.
It's almost a shame that Gilmore and Beckham Jr. won't be able to face-off more often in their respective NFL careers.
UPDATE: The Instagram fight between Gilmore and Beckham Jr. continued on Saturday night. Both players called one another out in now deleted posts. Twitter user, Mike King, captured each of their posts.
You can see the screenshots completely below.
Beckham Jr. called Gilmore irrelevant and Gilmore made sure to note that Beckham Jr. had more attempted punches than receptions against him in 2015.
No reason was given as to why both players deleted their Saturday night posts, but each took to Twitter and it's hard to imagine that the players weren't talking about one another in their posts.
It may be wise to keep Gilmore and Beckham away from one another when the Bills and Giants face off in the preseason. Then again, quite a few people may tune in just to watch Beckham Jr. and Gilmore go at one another in August.null
