Odell Beckham Jr.’s hilarious Twitter response to Myles Garrett about spanking a cop
During a locker room celebration following LSU’s National Championship game victory over Clemson back in January, Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. slapped a security guard on the rear end and was charged with simple assault.
The charge was dropped, but Beckham’s actions created a stir, nonetheless.
Well, Beckham’s teammate, defensive lineman Myles Garrett, had some fun with Beckham on Twitter Monday afternoon, posting a video of Karl Malone and Dennis Rodman exchanging, uh, butt slaps during an NBA Finals game:
Wait a min!!!! That wasn’t even the worst part …. the worst part was I got charged wit assault….. and u somehow didn’t !!! 😂😂😂😂😂😂 only in America https://t.co/8fjZXIdsNv

Of course, Beckham’s response to Garrett is in reference to Garrett hitting Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph over the head with a helmet during an on-field brawl back in November.
Garrett was suspended indefinitely by the NFL and missed the remainder of the 2019 campaign. He was reinstated earlier this offseason, but he was not charged with anything.
While Beckham and Garrett are both obviously joking around, the two stars would certainly like to make headlines for the right reasons next season.
The Browns were pegged as Super Bowl contenders by many heading into 2019, but they ended up winning just six games and missing the playoffs altogether.
Beckham was a bit of a disappointment, catching 74 passes for 1,035 yards and four touchdowns. Meanwhile, Garrett played in only six contests before being banned.
Cleveland’s rough year resulted in both head coach Freddie Kitchens and general manager John Dorsey being fired. The two men were replaced by Kevin Stefanski and Andrew Berry, respectively.
The Browns have not made the playoffs since the 2002-03 campaign, representing the longest active postseason drought in the NFL.
