Aaron Hernandez Commits Suicide; The Internet Reacts

by at .

As you've surely heard by now, former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was found dead in his prison cell early this morning.

He was acquitted of two counts of murder just last week, but he was convicted for the murder of fellow football player Odin Lloyd in 2015.

Since he was in a cell by himself, and since he was found hanging by a bed sheet, his death seems to be a suicide, but his attorney, along with many others, feel there's a possibility he could have been murdered.

But whatever caused his death, one thing is certain: people have a whole, whole lot of feelings about it ...
