New Dallas Cowboy Greg Hardy: ‘I don’t care if [you] like me’

The signing of Greg Hardy has been controversial for the Dallas Cowboys.

While the organization clearly believes in second chances, many have asked do the Cowboys have any ‘moral obligations‘ when it comes to signing players?

Hardy remains on the commissioner’s exempt list after being found guilty of misdemeanor domestic violence only to have the charges dropped on appeals after the accuser failed to show up for the trial.

Last week, the Cowboys officially signed Hardy to a one-year contract worth up to $13.1 million. Many have been critical of the move, including local media and the mayor of Dallas.

But Hardy doesn’t seem fazed by the negative attention. The defensive end took to social media Monday to post a message to all the naysayers. The original Instagram post has since been deleted, but Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News transcribed it as follows:

"I don’t Care If U Like Me, I Like Me and God knows all so I pray he Blesses America, The Cowboys and no place else #happy to have an opportunity #WorkLikeUAlwaysDo#Harder#Hardy#sackscoming#goodmorning all real Kraken fans I love u guys."

The original tweet that accompanied the Instagram post is still posted for the time being.
