Viewers Of Aaron Hernandez’s Disturbing Netflix Docu-Series Go Crazy + Former Lawyer SLAMS Doc For Speculation Of Aaron’s Sexuality, Ex-Fiancée Takes Social Media Break

​ ​ ​ ​

Netflix’s docu-series about former NFL star Aaron Hernandez has folks going crazy on socials media after its release. Meanwhile, his defense attorney, Jose Baez, and Aaron’s ex-fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins, also react to the disturbing docu-series. Get it all inside…

When Netflix released Aaron Hernandez's docu-series “Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez” last week, it sent shockwaves through social media.

The three-part documentary pieced together the former New England Patriots player's life and events that led up to him committing suicide in April 2017 after he was acquitted for a double murder. He was already serving a life sentence after he was found guily for the murder of his friend/semi-pro player Oldin Lloyd. Viewers were given a sneak peek into his life through interviews with people who were closest to the tight end, including friends and former teammates.

Getting a behind-the-scenes look at Aaron's life, fans and spectators were shocked by the events that led up to him taking his own life. The doc-series was quite disturbing on several levels and Twitter was in a tizzy.

Below are some reactions:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

During the final episode, it was revealed 27-year-old Aaron Hernandez suffered the most severe case of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) ever that Boston University researchers had ever seen in a person his age.

The docu-series focused a lot over whether Aaron struggled with his own sexual identity. His high school teammates/childhood friend Dennis SanSoucie, who played football with him at Bristol Central High School in Connecticut, alleged in the documentary that they participated in a sexual relationship, but kept it lowkey.

 

 

While some people believed Aaron committed suicide because rumors about him being gay were circulating, his defense attorney, Jose Baez, defended Aaron, claiming the accusations in the documentary are NOT true.

"I don’t give a damn about what some lame ass documentary has to say about Aaron. I knew him, they did not and while he was far from perfect, they are not even close to the truth," Jose wrote. "People have no idea how documentaries are made, the truth is usually found on the cutting room floor. These producers lied directly to my face, so I don’t expect their money making scheme to be much better. #ripchico #baezlawfirm #aaronhernande"

Jose also spoke out to TMZ about why the doc pissed him off. The site reports:

That's just not the case, though, according to Baez ... who says Aaron's death was triggered by advanced CTE -- a brain disease the tight end had developed since his youth. Baez insists Aaron's sexual orientation played ZERO part in his fate.

The fact SanSoucie made it into the doc pisses off Baez ... who tells us he only agreed to speak on camera if 'Killer Inside' producers promised to NOT interview certain people about Aaron's sexuality.

He didn't mention SanSoucie by name, but Baez made it clear he feels double-crossed by producers. Worth noting ... SanSoucie was the only person who appeared on camera making the gay allegation.

 

Aaron's ex-fiancee/mother of his daughter Shayanna Jenkins (above at his funeral) also reacted to the docu-series, revealing she was taking a break from social media:

 

"I wanted to let all of you sweet sweet souls know I have tried to read every message sent on IG and through email (positive and negative) ... The amount of support and positive energy is again unreal! I'm sure you will all understand how imperative it is to take some time away from social media," she wrote on Instagram.

 

Former Patriots player Ryan O'Callaghan - who was featured in the doc - also reacted to the docu-series. He never played with Aaron, but he talked about the struggles he faced suppressing his own sexual identity.

"I'm not going to speculate whether (Hernandez) was gay or not," Ryan said. "I was very careful with my words in the documentary to not do that. The last thing I would ever want to do is out someone."

"I knew people that knew him, but that's obviously a lot different than knowing the guy," he continued. "A lot of the answers I gave, I said 'I don't know Aaron, but' or 'I don't know if Aaron is gay or bi but' and those things get edited out."

"I think it's safe to say people don't just go around killing people if they're happy or everything is going great," he said. "I think it's safe to say he had something else going on if that involved his sexuality or what. I can assume some things and other people can safely assume things but I'm not sure what was going on. I think the documentary did a good job of talking about his past, where he came from and had a pretty normal good life until his dad died and things started to go downhill."

 

The docu-series have led some to believe that the doc heavily focused on the homosexuality angle as a cover up for how prominent CTE is in the NFL:
