Aaron Rodgers took to his Twitter account after he was confused for accused murderer Aaron Hernandez during a live segment on ESPN Wednesday. Reporter Jeremy Schaap referred to Aaron Hernandez as Aaron Rodgers during a breaking newscast.
Rodgers' dismayed tweet:
Not funny ESPN

Reportedly, it was Rodgers' first tweet in five days. So it doesn't seem like Rodgers saw Schaap's mistake happen live, though. The slip up happened around 4:15 p.m. ET and Rodgers didn't tweet about it until over five hours later.
As soon as Rodgers did tweet about it, though, Schaap was quick to respond about his mental lapse:
@AaronRodgers12 funny, no. But I did correct myself, right then, which of course the clip does not include.

You'll be glad to know everything is all well and fine in the NFL once again
