New England Patriots Super Bowl Champs

Boston TV Station Tweets Out About The Patriots Win to Advance to Super Bowl LII – Using a Picture of Aaron Hernandez

In the ‘HOLY CRAP’ department after the Pats AFC Title win over the Jaguars, one Boston TV station might be looking for a new social media person after the tweet they sent out following the game.

WCVB-TV in Boston tweeted out a simple headline promoting that the Pats had beaten the Jags and were headed to the Super Bowl.

All good – right?

Not so fast, as for some wild reason, the picture they used to support their headline featured late Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, who hung himself in April as he was serving a life sentence for a murder conviction.

Yes the tweet was deleted by the TV station, but not before it went viral on the net and was screenshot by a number of people.
