Last Wednesday, Mick Foley published a blog on his MySpace account criticizing Triple H for mocking Lilian Garcia during her appearance on RAW last month. Garcia was back on RAW to fill in as a ring announcer with most of the Raw crew grounded overseas.
The event in question occurred during Hunter's show-opening monologue on the Apr. 19 RAW in which he made a crack about Garcia "horsing around." The comment stems from those in the WWE's "inner circle" often joking that Lilian has a horse-shaped face.
Foley wrote, "Why does someone like Triple H, one of the most talented, well paid guys in the business, do something so shallow and mean? Why would a multi-millionaire, with millions of fans around the world, feel the need (several times over the years) to say something that is only meant to hurt? I don't get it. I don't get why it's done, I don't get why it's condoned, I don't get what possible satisfaction anyone involved gets from demeaning someone like Lillian Garcia. I just don't get it."
Breaking her silence on the matter, Garcia wrote the following message to Foley on her Twitter account (http://twitter.com/liliangarcia) today: "Mick Foley, this tweet's for you!! I really appreciate your kind words and the compassion you showed in your blog. Your care for my feelings proves what a loving, caring and wonderful human being you are. This is why I truly miss working with you. You are one of a kind!! Thank you, love you!!"
Foley acknowledged feedback he's received since last week for chastising Triple H for his dig towards Garcia in a follow-up blog. He acknowledged that he may have cost himself professionally down the road, not to mention that some people may see him as a hypocrite, but felt he had to stand for certain principles in this situation.
Foley explained further, "I could go into great detail about why some of the issues raised (it was innocent joking around on Triple H's part, I'm a hypocrite because I made fun of Al Snow, Test, etc., where was I during the Mickie James angle?) but I think it would be far more productive for readers to try to figure out the differences for themselves."
