AEW President and CEO Tony Khan recently called out and took shots of people on YouTube for illegally posting and pirating videos. A number of fans then responded to Tony Khan and called him out as well.
Top AEW Star Matt Hardy then came to the defense of Khan by saying he loved to see an Internet Nobody being put in the mud by Khan for illegally pirating videos, to which a fan responded to Matt Hardy by saying that he is gross and truly a “f—ing a–hole.”
Another fan then took to Twitter and said that Matt Hardy is a privileged POS as he continues to pile on a small YouTuber for daring to criticize AEW and its billionaire owner, to which Matt told the fan if he knew what privileged means and that he are up in poverty and earned everything he has.
Hardy then replied to the fan who called him gross and a “f—ing a–hole” and said what’s gross is when people make fun of injuries he and other AEW performers incur while busting their asses to entertain, as well as the disdain and jealousy towards AEW’s President and CEO Tony Khan for betting on himself, succeeding and also making the pro wrestling industry a better place.

Gross. You’re truly a fucking asshole for that one.— Harvey (@spikeworner) March 13, 2021
Nah. What’s gross is when people make fun of injuries that myself & @AEW performers incur while busting our asses to entertain.

Cupcake, do you know what PriViLegEd means? I grew up in poverty & knew no one in wrestling. I’ve EARNED everything I have. I’ve sacrificed my health for this biz & what I’ve EARNED.— MATT HARDY (@MATTHARDYBRAND) March 15, 2021
Make malicious fun of my sacrifices & job that feeds my family? GFY!
P.S. I’m a heel, dumbass. https://t.co/gcKWcRFrGW
Just stating the facts, stating the truth. Now that social media is such a huge platform, it’s sad how many feel compelled to tear down positive people & projects. It isn’t healthy behavior & it’s sad how common & widespread it’s become. https://t.co/YUL1VgntnM— MATT HARDY (@MATTHARDYBRAND) March 14, 2021
