On both Facebook and Twitter, an article started to make its rounds reporting Aaron Hernandez was found not guilty of all charges including murder. And, when it was reported he would be playing for the Patriots next season Twitter started to light-up with tweets.
An article published by satirical website ExtraWire reported Aaron Hernandez has reason to celebrate after being found not guilty. Apparently and of course false Judge E. Susan Garsh dropped all charges due to lack of evidence.
The hoax really lit up the social media networks, especially when the NFL apparently expressed they wanted to hire Hernandez to play for the Patriots for the 2015 season. The celebrity would have extensive training because his muscles apparently tightened up in prison, but he has already built up his strength, which would make him a perfect lineman.
The article was a hoax spread on both Facebook and Twitter thanks to ExtraWire, Hernandez will not be getting his original $19.3 million salary for the three year period (2015 to 2018).
Even if Aaron Hernandez was found not guilty, would the general public respect him as a sportsperson?
Aaron Hernandez will be going on trial in January 2015 for the murder of Odin L. Lloyd, all New England Patriots, fan paraphernalia and other NFL clothing will be banned from the Fall River courtroom where the AFC East champs’ former superstar goes on trial as reported by Star Tribune.
