The New England Patriots released Aaron Hernandez on Wednesday as the tight end was arrested in connection with the homicide of 27-year-old semipro football player Odin Lloyd. Hernandez was wearing a white V-neck T-shirt and red athletic shorts when authorities arrested him at his home and led him to a police cruiser.

Though he was wearing the white T-Shirt, his arms were not through the sleeves. Rather, they were tucked behind his back in the body of the shirt.

This image of Hernandez—coupled with the pervasive bro culture made possible by high-speed Internet connections and, one can only assume, #YOLO—has officially made "Hernandezing" a thing that is happening. Never did I think we'd miss Tebowing so badly.

In this trying time, please remember that friends don't let friends "Hernandez."
