Michelle Beadle absolutely crushes ESPN after airing Greg Hardy “redemption tour”

RELATED: The Cowboys are done with Greg Hardy

Greg Hardy gave an exclusive interview with ESPN’s Adam Schefter in what can only be construed as a complete disaster. Despite photographic proof, and a judge finding Hardy guilty, the free agent defensive end decided now is the time to rebuild his image and proclaimed innocence to the ESPN reporter.

Following the interview, ESPN’s Michelle Beadle let loose on her employer, as you can see in the video above.

Here’s a transcript of what she said, per Pro Football Talk:

“I feel dirty in that this guy has no job right now, and for some reason we’ve decided as a network that we’re going to give him the stage for his redemption tour as he basically goes out and tries to find some employment,” Michelle Beadle said on Tuesday’s SportsNation. “I don’t understand why we’re doing that. If he wants to figure out a way to get his message out there — which by the way, he hasn’t said he did anything wrong, so how a man is supposed to convince anybody he’s changed and yet not admit to actually doing anything? I have no idea. But why we’re giving him the forum to go out there and tell anybody that is where I’m a little bit confused.”


Beadle has been critical of athletes with a domestic violence past, including boxing champ Floyd Mayweather.

After Schefter said Hardy seemed like a “changed kind of guy,” Beadle called him out on Twitter:


She obviously wasn’t happy with just getting that off her chest, and laid further into Schefter and ESPN on SportsNation.
