Myles Garrett and Odell Beckham Jr. may be NFL players, but in some ways the two members of the Cleveland Browns are just like the rest of us.
When it comes to social media, they sometimes like to poke fun at each other.
Such was the case early on Monday when Garrett took to Twitter to post a short video clip of forwards Dennis Rodman of the Chicago Bulls and Karl Malone of the Utah Jazz slapping each other on the rear during an NBA Finals game in 1998:
The clip came from the final night of the ESPN documentary The Last Dance and referenced Beckham enthusiastically slapping the behind of a security guard following LSU’s national championship victory over Clemson in January.
Not to be outdone, Beckham replied back with a little fun of his own:
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— Odell Beckham Jr (@obj) May 18, 2020
That, of course, is a reference to the six-game suspension that Garrett received last November for an incident involving Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph and Rudolph’s helmet.
Garrett got in the last word - at least for now - with another reference from The Last Dance:
It’s fun to see Beckham and Garrett acting like they would fit right in with the rest of Browns Twitter, if they weren’t otherwise busy on Sunday afternoons in the fall.
