Ex-Pats CB Darrelle Revis claims he was hacked following heated exchange with fans on Instagram 04.13.15 at 12:18 am ET

After an apparent profane exchange with Patriots fans on social media over the weekend, former New England defensive back Darrelle Revis said Sunday via Twitter that his Instagram account had been hacked.

Revis, who signed with the Jets last month after a year with the Patriots, appeared to trade barbs with fans on Instagram who were upset about him leaving for New York, using several profanities along the way. However, after the exchange surfaced (thanks in large part to a story via Deadspin), both Revis and the Jets indicated that the account had been hacked. The remarks were later deleted, with Revis adding on Twitter the whole thing was “no big deal.”

Local TV photographer ordered not to cover Aaron Hernandez trial after following jurors 04.09.15 at 2:29 pm ET

The Aaron Herndandez trial took a strange turn on Thursday when two jurors said a news truck followed them after court on Wednesday.

Judge Susan E. Garsh ordered the WHDH-TV van driver to testify. The cameraman said he followed the jury bus to their parking lot after court on Wednesday as a way to know where the parking lot was located. He said he did not speak to any of the jurors.

The cameraman was ordered off the case by the judge as the court has previously issued an order that specified that “no person shall contact a juror” and following the bus was considered contact.

WHDH-TV as an entity is still allowed to cover the case.

The jury is still deliberating as of Thursday afternoon.

Prior to deliberation continuing Thursday morning in the Aaron Hernandez trial, two jurors were questioned by Judge Susan E. Garth.

After Wednesday’s court session, a WHDH-TV van reportedly followed two jurors into the parking lot. She called the situation “extraordinarily serious.” Both jurors were questioned, but then returned to the jury.

[UPDATE: 12:45]: WHDH-TV released a statement, which read: This morning, in the Aaron Hernandez trial, the judge questioned 7News as to any impropriety with the jury in the case. 7News did not approach any juror or talk to any juror. We also did not videotape or take pictures of any juror. We are continuing to work with the court and investigate the situation.

The jury is continuing their deliberation Thursday morning.

For the first time during the entire trial — in Tuesday’s closing arguments — the attorney for Aaron Hernandez acknowledged his client witnessed the killing of Odin Lloyd. He described Hernandez as a kid who didn’t know what to do, and said to the jury once again his client was not guilty.

The defense said the murder was by Hernandez’s co-defendants, Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz.

In the prosecution’s closing arguments, they argued Hernandez’s actions after the murder show he was involved.

Closing arguments are over, and now the jury will receive instructions to deliberate.
