According to the Moore County Sheriff’s office, up to 30 phone calls were directed to the office over fear that Matt Hardy may have committed suicide based on the scrolling text Youtube video he posted in addition to a “goodbye” tweet.
Police were directed to the wrong house, however, as they appeared at the home of Jeff Hardy and his wife. They apparently were able to get a hold of Hardy and Michael Zennie, a reporter for the Fayetteville Observer, notes that a Sheriff noted that Hardy is “fine.”
As noted last night, the stunt seemed to be Hardy’s latest “Internet work” in order to get the Internet talking about him. However, the stunt may have backfired. While Hardy did get press like he wanted, even his fans are calling the stunt a “bottom of the barrel tactic” in order to get desperate attention to himself.
Even his sister-in-law bashed him after police arrived at her home. “When the cops show up to our house at 11 pm, for a “suicide call” the ing joke is over @MATTHARDYBRAND. Stop trying to work the Internet,” the wife of Jeff Hardy, Beth Britt, said. She later added, “I guess you got what you wanted @MATTHARDYBRAND. Everyone is talking about you, again. But it’s not in a good way.”
