Boston ABC Affiliate Tweets Photo of Aaron Hernandez After Patriots Win


The Patriots are heading to the Super Bowl and one news organization, WCVB-TV Boston, tweeted out a photo it would like to take back. 

The ABC affiliate tweeted a photo featuring Aaron Hernandez during his playing days with the Patriots, before his arrest and untimely death. Fans quickly noticed and called the account out on such a careless error because he hasn't played with the organization since 2012. 

Shortly after, the mistake was realized and the tweet was deleted. WCVB-TV said it's working with those involved to prevent such mistakes in the future.

It's always good to double-check, especially when you're based in the same area as the fan base you're targeting.
