Greg Hardy’s ESPN interview has been criticized by multiple reporters.

Greg Hardy isn’t making any more friends on his redemption tour.

ESPN host Jemele Hill didn’t hold anything back while discussing the former Dallas Cowboys player, who’s looking for a new home.

“Greg Hardy is despicable. And I hope he never wears another NFL uniform again,” the “His & Hers” co-host said on Tuesday.“And if you choose to sign him I hope you get exactly what the Cowboys got, which is absolutely nothing and little to no return for somebody who honestly has no redeeming value.”


The free agent defensive end gave his first no-holds barred interview with ESPN’s Adam Schefter, insisting on his innocence in the two-year-old domestic violence charge in which he was accused of throwing girlfriend Nicole Holder onto a couch filled with guns and threatening her in May 2014.

Hardy was found guilty, but the charges were dropped on appeal when Holder failed to appear for a hearing.

“His & Hers” co-host Jemele Hill called the former Pro Bowler “a disgrace.”

In regards to Hardy’s comment that hitting a woman is “nonexistent in most southern homes,” Hill cited statistics on the states in which a woman is most likely to be killed by men over the past decade: South Carolina ranked No. 1 and Louisiana was fourth.

“I just want people to understand how very stupid some of the things that come out his mouth are,” she said.

The talk show host also called out Hardy’s refusal to accept responsibility for his actions.

“For me, to have shown remorse and contrition and at least accountability is an important part of the forgiveness process or, for that matter, showing people that maybe you’re not what we think that you are.

“Greg Hardy time and time again shows us exactly who we all think him to be,” Hill said on the show.

ESPN personality Michelle Beadle questioned the network’s decision to give Hardy a platform at all.

Another ESPN personality, Michelle Beadle, questioned the network’s decision to give him a platform at all.

“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,” she 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 is a man supposed to convince anybody he’s changed and yet not admit to actually doing anything? I have no idea.”
