Odell Beckham Jr. Pays Tribute To Fashion Designer Virgil Abloh Ahead Of Monday Night Football

Odell Beckham Jr. is one of many who are mourning the recent passing of fashion design icon Virgil Abloh, who died just a couple of weeks ago.

Abloh was just 41-years old.

Prior to the Monday Night Football game against the Cardinals, OBJ rocked attire to honor Virgil Abloh.

Virgil Abloh was a barrier breaker for the African-American community, climbing the heights of the fashion design world before becoming the artistic director of Louis Vuitton men’s wear.

He also had many other independent projects – working with the likes of many around the sports and music world.

Odell Beckham Jr. isn’t the only prominent figure to honor Abloh, as Kanye West, Drake, Kid Cudi, and many other performers who had worked with him paid tribute since he passed away.

It’s even being rumored that Kanye West will overtake Virgil Abloh’s position at Louis Vuitton.


Virgil Abloh died after a two-year battle with cardiac angiosarcoma, a rare cancer. But he’ll live on in the memories of all of those who he inspired over the years.

We’ll see if Odell Beckham Jr. can put on a show in honor of the designer on Monday night.
