If it is innocent until proven guilty, what exactly was the problem?
The problem of course is that it is bad PR, but if you take the PR out of it, since Hernandez hasn’t been convicted, there really shouldn’t be an issue.
Hernandez and the Pouncey Brothers are friends. Maybe they assume Hernandez is innocent, if they assume that why wouldn’t they support him?
Here is Maurkice forced apology courtesy of Larry Brown Sports.
“I fully recognize the seriousness of the situation involving my former teammate, and I regret that my actions appear to make light of that serious situation,” he wrote. “I apologize to anyone who was offended by my actions.”
It is best to avoid negative press when you can, the Pouncey brothers should have known better, but I believe sometimes we blow things out of proportions because everything has to be “breaking news”. Was it a lapse in judgment by the Pouncey Brothers yes, anything to apologize for, absolutely not.
