After the release of Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez, all the questions were asked to Aaron Hernandez’s fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins. Thanks to Good Morning America, Jenkins is about to break her silence about the Netflix documentary that engaged in the story of the late NFL player’s murder conviction, sexuality problems, and his eventual suicide.
The segment of GMA is set to air on Monday, the 27th of January 2020.

In the preview of the interview, Jenkins was asked about Hernandez and how people should remember him. Of course, Jenkins is the right person to ask this as she was the NFL star’s fiance and the mother of Hernandez’s child. To add to that, the interview will also be revealing other information the documentary has left out of Hernandez’s story.
“It’s the hardest thing ever,” she sadly says in the interview.
If you’re not familiar with the premise of the documentary, it’s about Hernandez’s life––how at his childhood, he was already being sexually abused, but most importantly how he became an all-around talent for the New England Patriots to a convicted murderer. It was also revealed that Hernandez had CTE or Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy that suggests could have been the reason for the violent behaviours and problems with sexuality.
Family hasn’t always been the number one option for Hernandez. As he was going through his phase of figuring out what his sexuality was, his father would not have approved of having a gay son and was abusive enough to “slap the fa***t out of you.”
It was even reported that to hide Hernandez’ problems, he would come out as a homophobe calling transgenders in his nearby jail units as “those things.”
In one call with his fiancee:
“Stop calling them ‘those things’. Stop it. That is so rude,” Jenkins told him.
“No, they got titties,” he said.
“I don’t care. They’re called transgender. Don’t call them ‘those things’,” Jenkins exclaimed.
“Well, in jail, that’s what they call em. Things,” Hernandez replied.
These are but snippets of what’s to come on the interview with Jenkins. What’s left out might just piece the puzzle for the skeptics.
