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

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

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.
