Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. found himself in the middle of a social media maelstrom last week, when “Girls” creator Lena Dunham suggested Beckham snubbed her when the two attended the recent Met Gala in New York.

But after Dunham later apologized for what she called “totally narcissistic assumptions about what (Beckham) was thinking,” the receiver said Wednesday he wasn’t worried about it.

“I didn’t really know much about the situation to really address,” Beckham said at his locker after practice. “There’s never any bad blood between me and anybody, and I’m sure that it’ll get handled or settled however.”

Beckham’s bigger concern at the moment?

“Right now, my focus is the Cowboys,” he said of Sunday’s regular-season opener against the Cowboys. “There’s always going to be things that go on in my life, incidents, distractions. It’s relevant. It’s part of my life. Right now, my focus is way bigger. It’s on Dallas.”
