After "tweeting" earlier that he was tired of being punished for "someone else’s sins," Matt Hardy posted the following MySpace Blog update claiming he was simply working the internet media again:
"Last night, since almost every WWE personality was in Boston for The Decade Of Smackdown show, we all went out to eat after the show last night. A hug tab ended up being comped, which was very cool. Everyone was gonna leave generous tips because the meal was free obviously, and we wanted to take great care of our servers. I was one of the last ones to leave, and was figuring up the tip. The tip wasn’t as good as I would have liked it to have been from a couple of the guys. So I left a large tip at the end, extremely big. I joked and said it was a sin I had to pay for other people’s mistakes and cheapness. I told a couple of my closest WWE friends that if I posted a tweet rephrasing the situation as "I am exhausted from being punished because of someone else’s sins", that the wrestling media would pick that comment up and run with it as something completely different. Low and behold, almost every site did. Not surprising, it’s what I suspected. Just another example of how they’re looking for any comment they can to translate however into hits for their site and reader views. So take it from me, don’t believe everything you read-fact is rarely separated from fiction when it comes to any branch of the "media entertainment market."
