Joe Lycett increased pressure on David Beckham over the World Cup. The comedian has posted another message to the footballer, four days before the tournament’s opening ceremony.
This is when Lycett’s ultimatum to Beckham ends – if he cancels his deal with the tournament, the comedy star will donate £10,000 to LGBTQ+ charities.
If he doesn’t end the deal, Lycett will livestream himself shredding the money. Each £1,000 represents one of the ten million that Beckham’s deal is reportedly worth.
The new message is a screenshot of an email from Lycett to Beckham’s PR team, asking: “If there’s any chance he might budge on his position?” “I really don’t want to shred ten grand!!!” he added.
