“Hernandezing” Is The Stupid New Meme About An Accused Killer That Nobody Asked For

People imitating Aaron Hernandez’s arrest photo and selfie with a gun probably shouldn’t be a thing.

1. Following former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez’s arrest for suspected murder and various gun charges Wednesday, TMZ published this photo of Hernandez taking a selfie while holding a Glock pistol.

2. The internet reacted, as the internet does. Hmmm. I guess it’s kind of clever… with fake guns.

6. A photo of Hernandez being arrested at his North Attleboro, Mass. home yesterday also caught the internet’s attention because, hey, where are his arms?

7. That’s right. There are two versions of this meme. They’re both pretty yikes.

13. When you consider the other kind of Hernandezing, which involves holding up a gun to imitate a guy who allegedly murdered another guy using a gun, this almost seems palatable.
