Odell Beckham Jr. Kicked Off His Flight

Odell Beckham Jr. causes a flight delay Thanksgiving weekend after getting kicked off his flight for refusing to buckle his seat belt...

Popular NFL player Odell Beckham Jr. was escorted off a plane at Miami International Airport by police officers on Sunday morning.
According to authorities, Miami-Dade police officers were dispatched to a medical emergency aboard an American Airlines flight bound for Los Angeles at approximately 9:30 a.m.
“The term used over the intercom was, ‘We have an issue with a passenger. We have to return back to the gate,’” passenger Carlos Gauna told Local 10 News. “We did see an ambulance show up, we did see paramedics board the airplane.”
The flight crew told officers they were concerned for Beckham’s safety after they attempted to wake him in order for him to fasten his seat belt, police said.
Flight crew members asked Beckham several times to leave the plane, police said, but he refused and as a result, the aircraft was deplaned.
Daniel Davillier, an attorney for Beckham, sent a statement to ABC News in regard to the incident. It read:
“Earlier today, Odell Beckham Jr boarded a morning flight in Miami without any problems. The flight was delayed after boarding and prior to take off Mr. Beckham fell asleep with his blanket over his head, which is his normal practice for long flights. He was awakened and told that the plane was back at the gate and that he needed to get off the plane because he did not put his seatbelt on when asked. He responded that he was asleep, and that he would put his seatbelt on at that time. He was informed that it was too late, and that either he would have to get off the plane or everyone would have to deplane.
“The overzealous flight attendant refused to simply allow Mr. Beckham to fasten his seatbelt and proceed with the flight and instead immediately removed everyone from the plane. At no time was Mr Beckham disruptive or combative. He was willing to comply with the seatbelt requirement, but the flight attendant wanted to prove that he had the authority to have Mr. Beckham removed from the flight. The airline proceeded to send Mr. Beckham’s luggage to Los Angeles without him.
“This incident was completely unnecessary. Sleeping on a plane should not be a cause for removal from a flight. If they could wake him up when the flight returned to the gate, then they could have done the same thing and woken him up to ask him to put on his seatbelt.”

Beckham Tweeted about the incident while it was happening.

Tons of flight delays yesterday. I was stuck at the airport for 5 additional hours! If Odell had caused my 5hr delay (mine was weather related), he'd need to double up on security 🤨. I was ready to choke out this Asian airport worker for being an @$$hole!
