In the aftermath of images of his ex-girlfriend's heavily bruised body coming to light last week, Dallas Cowboys' Greg Hardy is under intense scrutiny.
And it looks like the defensive end, who was suspended for four games this season and missed all but one game of the 2014 season due to domestic abuse charges, feels he is undeserving of such criticism.

That's after Hardy, today, updated his Twitter bio to make reference to the way he has been treated in recent times.

The NFL star's bio on the social media site read, as of this morning:
The account has since been updated and changed to lyrics from a Tupac song, but not before his views had been made public.
Despite, last year, being found guilty on charges of communicating threats and assault on a female, Hardy's case was actually thrown out of court on appeal after his ex-girlfriend refused to cooperate further.
This situation, according to ProFootballTalk, only arose after the then Panthers star "paid Holder an undisclosed sum of money so she wouldn’t show up to testify at his trial."
In light of the dropped case, and the fact his domestic violence charges actually being expunged, Hardy clearly feels like he is now being unfairly treated by those condemning him.
The battered and bruised body of Nicole Holder, however, and the fact Hardy claimed to police back in 2014 that he was the victim in the altercation makes it particularly hard to find any sympathy for the man.
The fact he continues to act with little remorse, beyond one unspecific Tweet, means the voices arguing for his banishment from the NFL are only intensifying. His attempts this morning to garner sympathy on social media are likely to fall on deaf ears.
