Greg Hardy says good old fashion Mississippi morals are the reason he’s never put his hands on a woman, despite a suspension and ugly bruises that prove otherwise.
During an ESPN Insiders interview with Adam Schefter, the Cowboys free agent addressed rumors that he’s a woman beater.
Hardy: “I’ve never put my hand on ANY women … In my whole entire life, No Sir. That’s just not how we’re raised. As you can tell, like I said again, it’s the Bible belt. It’s just something that’s, I wouldn’t even say frowned upon, just something that’s nonexistent in most southern homes.”
Schefter: “You say you did nothing wrong, you’re innocent and yet the pictures of her that surfaced would seem to suggest a woman who had some type of physical contact. How do you explain that?”
Hardy: “I will stop you there and say that I didn’t say that I didn’t do anything wrong. That situation occurred and that situation was handled but … saying that I did nothing wrong is a stretch but saying I am innocent is correct. Yes sir.”
Schefter: “Did you ever put your hands on her?”
Hardy: “No Sir … No Sir.”
