Odell Beckham Jr. and I officially have one thing in common: we’d rather talk about sweatpants than Lena Dunham.
Beckham spoke to Complex on Tuesday at a GQ penthouse party and said, “I never want any problems with anybody in this world” when asked about Dunham’s take on their interactions at last month’s Met Gala.
“I don’t have enough information to really speak on it,” he told Complex. “We’ll see what happens from there. I never want any problems with anybody in this world.”
If textiles are all you truly care about in this world and need to catch up, Beckham Jr. and the Girls creator/director/star both attended the Gala in New York City. They did not speak. Later, Dunham wrote in an interview with Amy Schumer that Beckham had “looked at me and he determined I was not the shape of a woman by his standards.”
“You and I were literally sitting across from each other at the Met Ball, and it was so surreal to get to do that. I was sitting next to Odell Beckham Jr., and it was so amazing because it was like he looked at me and he determined I was not the shape of a woman by his standards. He was like, ‘That’s a marshmallow. That’s a child. That’s a dog.’ It wasn’t mean—he just seemed confused.”
At worst, Dunham was criticized as racist. At best, it came off as a bit presumptuous and rude. Dunham later apologized via Instagram, and now the second overall pick in your fantasy football draft would rather talk about distressed fabrics.
“You can dress it up, you can dress it down, however you want to do it,” Beckham said of his 13 x twenty clothing line, which launches today at Bloomingdales. “It’s something that you can wear every day, and it looks good.”
The sweatpants start at $175. Hats and jackets featuring Beckham Jr.’s face are also for sale. It’s good to see that we’re all moving on from this.
