Jets fan shows up for game against Patriots in an Aaron Hernandez prison jumpsuit

Well, you knew visiting fans were going to give the Patriots a hard time over the Aaron Hernandez situation at some point.

At least give Jets fans some credit for creativity.

One Jets fan dressed in an orange prison jumpsuit with Hernandez's football No. 81 on it and his name on the back for Sunday's home game against New England. The picture above was posted by @TeeBrady on Twitter. Hernandez is being held on a charge of first-degree murder in connection with the shooting death of semipro football player Odin Lloyd this past June.

So it's probably a bit insensitive to make a joke, but it's probably even weirder to wear a regular Hernandez Patriots jersey with no shame whatsoever (h/t to Deadspin):
