Accused killer and ex-Pat Aaron Hernandez receives rapper Snoop Dogg’s support (Photo)
Rapper Snoop Dogg, who also goes by the name Snoop Lion, has thrown his support behind accused killer and former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.
Check out this July 4th post on Snoop Dogg’s Instagram account. He shows a photo with Hernandez along with this message: “Keep ya head up!!” Snoop Dogg wrote. “We prayn 4 ya.” It’s followed by several negative comments.
Hernandez is behind bars awaiting trial for the shooting death of 27-year-old semipro football player Lloyd Odin.
Odin was found dead June 17 about a mile from Hernandez’s home. He was shot five times. Odin was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancée and the two men were friends.
Hernandez has pleaded not guilty.
Last summer, the Patriots gave Hernandez a five-year contract worth $40 million. However, the team cut Hernandez following his arrest and have voided all guaranteed payments.
