Browns RB Dion Lewis: ‘Aaron Hernandez homie snitched on him lol’
Cleveland Browns running back Dion Lewis learned on Wednesday that it is probably best to simply ignore the Aaron Hernandez murder investigation on public forums like Twitter. The subject is a sensitive one, so comments like this are not bright:
Lewis quickly realized he had made a mistake and deleted the tweet, but not before CBSSports.com’s Eye on Football blog was able to capture it. For those who have not followed the Odin Lloyd murder case closely, Lewis was referring to Hernandez’s friend Carlos Ortiz. Ortiz has given investigators several key pieces of information, including informing police that Ernest Wallace (another one of Hernandez’s friends) told him that Hernandez admitted to shooting Lloyd.
In addition, Ortiz also led investigators to an apartment that Hernandez had in Franklin, Mass. where several key pieces of evidence were seized.
Lewis is right. From what we’ve gathered, Hernandez’s friend did rat him out. But it’s not funny, and I don’t know if informing police your “friend” murdered someone makes you a bad friend. Not to mention, nobody knows what the exact relationship between Hernandez and Ortiz is anyway. Lewis tried to defend himself after deleting the initial tweet.

Let this be a lesson to all other NFL players: keep your Hernandez comments to yourselves. Nothing good can come of cracking jokes about it.
