Though, later this event created controversy and raised questions about its authenticity. People said it was fake, and they did that for promotion purposes. But Hardman speaks out against this false claim.
Hardman says, “He would like it to be fake, and then we can be friends after – he tried to do that at the press conference – but that’s not how I was brought up. If you say certain things, you stand by it,”
“I do not like this guy – just the sight of him makes me want to punch the blood from his nose. He lacks the qualities of a good man; no integrity, he flips on his word, he says one thing and does another.”
