If you’ve been spreading BenGay’s eye-safe formula on your eyeballs to soothe them from the excessive rolling they did last week, then you most likely read Lena Dunham’s conversation with Amy Schumer for her newsletter. That conversation was filled with many bitter ass dingles, but the bitter ass dingle that got the most attention was the one that Lena spit out about this year’s Met Gala. Lena sat next to New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. at the Met Gala and when he didn’t talk to her or give her one drop of attention, she assumed that he was disgusted by her body, didn’t want to fuck her and was trying to figure out if she was “a marshmallow,” “a child” or “a dog.” Lena seemed to think that if a stranger dude doesn’t talk to her or make eye contact with her, he’s obviously a misogynistic gutter pig who doesn’t want to suffer through the pain of trying to keep the wet heaves down while looking at her gross body as they talk.
Lena later put out an apology where she said that she was projecting her own insecurities. Odell didn’t ever release a statement or put anything on his Instagram about it, but reporters asked him about it the past couple of days. The recipe for Odell’s answer had a dash of Mariah Carey’s “I don’t know her” and a cup of “Who Cares? So What?”
Odell was at a GQ party in NYC on Tuesday night, and when Complex asked him about the Lena shit, he pretty much just shrugged:
“I don’t have enough information to really speak on it. We’ll see what happens from there. I never want any problems with anybody in this world.”
And yesterday, sports reporter Jordan Raanan also asked Odell about the Lena shit in the locker room, and he once again, swatted away the situation as though it was an annoying gnat who has a half-hour show on HBO. The video of Odell answering Jordan is below, but here’s his answer in text form:
“I talked about it already, but I don’t really know much about the situation to really address. There’s never any bad blood between me and anybody. I’m sure it’ll be handled or settled however. Right now the biggest focus is the Cowboys. There’s always going to be things that go on in my life – incidents, distractions, whatever you want to call them. Right now my focus is way bigger. It’s on Dallas.”
So either OBJ doesn’t know her or he doesn’t know the situation “her” created or both! This is the part in your day when you find yourself jealous of Odell Beckham Jr. But really, the reporters should have tried to get Odell to remember Lena by saying, “You know, Lena Dunham was that marshmallow dog child who sat next to you at the Met Gala!”
