I ‘feel like a zoo animal’: NFL’s Odell Beckham Jr. whines about how black athletes are treated after signing $95 million contract

There’s nothing like watching coddled, multi-millionaire professional athletes sitting around whining about how they are oppressed because of the color of their skin, but New York Giant star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. took it to a whole other level when he compared himself to a zoo animal.

“To me, I be feeling like, I tell people this all the time — I really feel like a zoo animal. Like that’s where life’s gone for me,” he said. “You know, you used to take your kids to the zoo and we used to be like, you know, ‘I want to see the lions’ or ‘Let’s go see the lions.’ And you go out there, and the lions are laid out. You know what I mean?”

That the NFL player known for his flamboyant behavior just signed a five-year, $95 million contract this week makes his idiotic statement all the more egregious.


And if that portion of the 1:13 minute clip from LeBron James’ HBO show “The Shop” did not make you feel far less educated for having indulged, watching the over-paid NBA player remove all doubt that he’s a racist should have done the trick.

James, who had an estimated net worth of $440 million before signing a deal with the Los Angeles Lakers that guaranteed him $154 million, seriously needs to spend some of that money buy a little cheese to go with his major league whine about white athletes being treated better.

It’s almost as if these ingrates are begging the public to turn away and stop spending their hard earned cash watching grown men play with balls — and with ticket prices what they are, we’re talking a LOT of cash.

The reaction on social media suggested what we already know, that these fools need to stop crying and man up.
