*Snoop Dogg has come under fire from fans after sending an online message of support to his friend Aaron Hernandez following his recent arrest on murder charges.
The former New England Patriots tight end is being held without bail by Massachusetts police amid allegations he was involved in the fatal shooting of Odin Lloyd, whose body was found near the athlete’s home in North Attleborough last month.
Hernandez, also accused of unlawful possession of firearms, faces life without parole if convicted.
Snoop Dogg, who was acquitted of his own murder counts in 1996 relating to the shooting death of a gang member three years earlier, showed support for Hernandez by reposting a picture of himself with Hernandez on Instagram earlier today.
The caption for the image, which had originally been uploaded earlier this year (13), now reads: “Keep ya head up !! We prayn 4 ya (sic)”.
Snoop’s Instragram followers pounced.
“Praying that he rots in hell!,” one person wrote. Another posted, “u should be praying for the family of the homie who got murdered! F**k Aaron Hernandez.”
Reports suggest the former NFL star, who has pleaded not guilty to the murder charges, is also under investigation by authorities in Boston in relation to a double homicide in the city last year, although cops have declined to confirm whether he is being considered as a possible suspect in that case.
