Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was arrested last week and charged with first-degree murder in the death of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd.
However, many female fans of Hernandez apparently do not want to wait for a trial. They want the ex-NFL player to be released now because he is so attractive.
According to the Houston Chronicle, female fans on Twitter are clamoring for the freedom of the accused killer.
Some of the tweets include:
"Free Aaron Hernandez! He's too sexy for jail ;)"
"Free Aaron Hernandez, he to fine to be locked up."
"Free Aaron Hernandez, he didnt do it..... but free him even if he did."
More of the adoring tweets reported by CBS Chicago include:
"Am I the only one who thinks Aaron Hernandez is still sexy even if he is a murderer?"
"Leave Aaron Hernandez alone ... He's sexy as hell"
"Aaron Hernandez got charged with murder? he still fine though...shoot lol"
"Why is Aaron Hernandez still so damn sexy? Hahaha"
While it could be argued that some people are "trolling" on Twitter for attention, it would seem that even joking about an accused murderer is in bad taste, especially for the family of Odin Lloyd.
