Moron compares Oday Aboushi to Hernandez!
I was happy to see no one posted the original slanderous article yesterday that was all innuendo without a single quote from Oday supporting their position.
And what a change in the NY media jumping to his defense instead of adding it to the circus accusations. So happy Mehta is gone!
NY Jets' Oday Aboushi unfairly compared to alleged murderer Aaron Hernandez by MLB.com employee on Twitter
According to The Sporting News recount of Yahoo's story, Aboushi was vaguely connected to an anti-Semitic activist group in the article, but Aboushi was not quoted and was hardly mentioned in the piece, which has since been deleted, but not before being ripped on Twitter.

Jets OL Oday Aboushi is of Palestinian decent and played high school football in Brooklyn. He is the target of a since-deleted Yahoo! sports article which prompts an unfair comparison to Aaron Hernandez on Twitter.
MLB.com's New Media Coordinator Jonathan Mael made what he himself later described as a "beyond inappropriate" comparison when he insulted Jets offensive lineman Oday Aboushi via Twitter Wednesday. Mael tweeted, via the Sporting News, "The @nyjets are a disgrace of an organization. The Patriots have Aaron Hernandez, the Jets have Oday Aboushi." The tweet was later deleted.
Aboushi is Palestinian-American. Hernandez has been charged with murder in a case in Massachusetts.
Mael's tweet comparing the Jets fifth round pick last year to the alleged murder appears to stem from a strange Yahoo! sports article.
According to The Sporting News recount of Yahoo's story, Aboushi was vaguely connected to an anti-Semitic activist group in the article, but Aboushi was not quoted and was hardly mentioned in the piece, which has since been deleted. But Mael took to Twitter off the story.
Aboushi wrote on Twitter Thursday evening, "Can't thank everyone enough for all the supportive and strong words! Continuing to hold my head high. Thank You!"
The Jets declined to comment on the matter. Mael later apologized in two tweets that read: "I apologize to the @nyjets organization and to (Oday) Aboushi for my insensitive and offensive tweet... The comparison was beyond inappropriate and did not reflect my true beliefs."
Aboushi, on his Twitter account @Oday_Aboushi75, retweeted many who sent him support throughout Thursday evening. Aboushi was the Jets fifth-round draft pick in this year's draft.
Aboushi played his high school ball in Brooklyn at Xaverian High School and college football at Virginia.
