Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been found guilty on all charges, and now fans and haters alike have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts.
One of the most widely covered court cases involving a football player since the trial of O.J. Simpson has finally come to an end. Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been found guilty on all charges in relation to the murder of Odin Lloyd.
Rather than living the life of a superstar, playing football alongside a quarterback like Tom Brady, and living out his life as a potential NFL legend, Hernandez chose another path in life that took him down a road that he will never be able to come back from.
Now, instead of catching passes and celebrating on the field with his teammates, Hernandez will be staring at the cold walls of a jail cell and wondering when/if someone is going to make a move on him as he serves life in prison with no hope of parole.
This means that the only chance he has of seeing the sun again will be through bars, chains, and lots of barbed wire. While we in no way feel bad for Hernandez, especially after the things that he’s done, it is such a disappointing waste of a tremendous talent that had the potential for such greatness.
As you can imagine, people have plenty to say on the matter and ever since the verdict was announced, people have been taking to social media sites like Twitter to express their thoughts, and even crack a few jokes, on the life that could have been and life lost because of Aaron Hernandez.
We think it’s safe to say that a majority of people who may have considered themselves a fan of the young tight end have no sympathy left in their hearts for him now.
Of course, it simply wouldn’t be Twitter if someone wasn’t there to crack a joke at someone’s expense. Unfortunately for Hernandez, he has made it all too easy for people to come up with material.
Unfortunately, nothing that anyone can say will bring back Odin Lloyd. That ship sailed the moment that Aaron Hernandez made the decision to follow through on his actions and end Lloyd’s life once and for all. On the other hand, hopefully the verdict will be able to provide some sort of closure and solace for the family and friend of Odin Lloyd.
As for Aaron Hernandez, his story is far from over. Unfortunately for him, from now on that story will be told from the inside of a jail cell.
