Beckham, like most celebrities, is no stranger to the gossip on social media. The Giants player decided to respond to a fan who tweeted that her crush on him doesn’t matter because she’s Black.
After a user named Lance randomly asked, “If you could sleep with one celebrity, who would it be?”
A woman using the moniker @AlwaysAboutMeme, replied “@obj [agony emojis] but they say he doesn’t like [Black Women].”
Less than five minutes after the post, Beckham responded.
“They say a lot. Listening to ‘they’ won’t get us far in life,” he wrote. “That’s something ‘they’ made up! I’m all for vibes, no matter what u are! No [cap].”
Beckham is known for his outgoing personality but he has been guarded when it comes to publicly sharing about his dating life. As a result, many rumors circulate about his sexuality and his platonic friendships with women.
In 2015, the New York Daily News reported NFL Hall of Famer Michael Irvin said the wide receiver is taunted with gay slurs.
“For some reason, everybody goes after him with gay slurs,” Irvin told the news outlet. “He’s a different kind of dude. He has the hairdo out, he’s not the big muscular kind of dude. The ladies all love him. He’s a star. I wonder why people are going in that direction. It blows my mind. I told him he can’t let stuff that people say get to you.”
Model and actress Amber Rose denied rumors that she and Odell were dating after they were spotted at the Coachella music festival in April 2017.
“No you know what Odell is literally one of my best friends in the entire world,” Rose told the Jasmine Brand. “We are very very close, very tight, we talk a lot.” She also attempted to dispel the rumors about him being gay.
Beckham has been vocal that he is in love with his football career.
