According to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, the Pro Football Hall of Fame has removed the photo above of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame has removed a photo of former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez celebrating a touchdown from a display after several visitors complained about its presence.
The 2010 photo of Hernandez scoring a TD was an award-winning image from the annual HOF photo contest. Hall officials removed it from a display earlier this week.
“In the spirit of good taste we thought we’d take it down,” said Joe Horrigan, the hall’s vice president of communication and exhibits.
While I understand why they removed the photo, it’s a little disheartening that the NFL has done so much to erase Hernandez from their league before he’s been convicted of any crimes.
