Boston ABC Affiliate Tweets Photo of Aaron Hernandez After Patriots Win

Patriots fans and sports lovers in general were appalled by the tweet.

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.
