NEW YORK (WFAN) -- Feeling chatty with his Twitter followers, Odell Beckham Jr. ripped the New York Giants on Monday night, calling them a franchise that isn't as serious about winning as he is.

In response to one follower who called Beckham a "cancer" during his time with the Giants, the three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver, who was traded to the Cleveland Browns last month, said: "Ask any one of my teammates of who I was as a teammates and a man and a person.... yes I'm cancer to a place that's ok wit losing because I want to win that BADDD. Ur absolutely correct !"

Beckham fired off a total of 48 tweets, kindled by a post he saw from HotNewHipHop that quoted NJ.com’s interview with Giants general manager Dave Gettleman, who alleged that Beckham created a culture problem within the Giants leading to the trade.

Beckham wrote that the manner in which he was shipped out of New York was "crazy" and "beyond disrespectful."

The star wide receiver's years with the Giants will be remembered for his electricifying play as well as his disruptive behavior both on and off the field. One Giants fan asked him why he didn't "straighten up" after signing a five-year, $90 million contract in August.

"I tried my best , the situation I had been in since I got there never changed ... we were still losing. PERIOD... money doesn't bring happiness brotha... remember that," Beckham responded.

He got defensive when he was asked about the infamous Miami yacht trip he and some teammates took days before the Giants' January 2017 playoff game against the Green Bay Packers -- a contest in which New York was blown out, 38-13, and Beckham was held to 23 yards receiving and dropped a couple of passes.

"And we lost but of 20 points.... halftime Hail Mary.. packs on the road," Beckham wrote. "There no victim role , I had a terrible game . Wit not many opportunities to do anything as well. I'm a man. I don't neeed to hide. How many play off games have u had???"

When another fan asked Beckham why he didn't travel with the Giants when he was injured, the wideout fired back: "Ask the coach .... I beggged him to go to each and every one of those games actually for my teamatws and to be on the sideline for the home games... he told me 'No'.... anything else sir."

The Browns acquired Beckham along with Pro Bowl defensive end Olivier Vernon for the 17th and 95th picks in the 2019 draft as well as right guard Kevin Zeitler and safety Jabrill Peppers in a trade that could go down in NFL history should Cleveland return to prominence on the field. Beckham said he's "never been in a place so happy in my life, my soul, my spirit, is at an all time high!!"

He summed up his Twitter rant by writing, "Im not playin shotsss are fired!!!"
