When it comes to player feuds, Odell Beckham Jr. is known for his recent beef with Carolina Panthers cornerback, Josh Norman. This past week, however, Beckham Jr’s feud with Buffalo Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore escalated when players took to social media to throw shade at one another.
On Instagram, Beckham Jr posted a picture of himself running past Gillmore with the caption, “It ain't a moment till u make it...”
Gillmore saw Beckham Jr’s post and retaliated with a post of his own copying Beckham Jr’s caption, “It ain't a moment til you make it”
Later, Beckham Jr took to twitter to resolve some questions by stating:
These two players squared off in the 2015 regular season during Week 4. Gillmore and the Bills held Beckham Jr to just 38 yards, his second-lowest total yards in a game all season. Beckham Jr was also unable to haul in a touchdown in the contest.
After the game, Gillmore used the phrases, "Prima donna", "Weird", and "Golden boy” to refer to Beckham Jr.
"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."
When asked about Beckham Jr’s level of talent, Gillmore said, "He has good hands, he can catch. He's good but he's not what people think after that one catch.
"His world is based on hype and that one catch," Gilmore said. "Everybody sees that, everybody knows him for that and people don't really look at the film and watch him and really don't know what type of player he is."
Viewers will have a chance to watch this feud continue into the season as the New York Giants and the Bills play each other during the 2016 preseason. For fans of Beckham Jr, you have to hope he calms his many feuds with players among the league because even he recognizes he is a target to the defense when he plays.
