The Pro Football Hall of Fame removed a photo of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez celebrating a touchdown from a display after several visitors complained about it, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Hernandez was charged with first-degree murder in the June 17 shooting death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd. Hernandez pled not guilty to one count of murder and five gun-related charges.

The 2010 photo of Hernandez scoring a touchdown against the Green Bay Packers was an award-winning photo from the annual Hall of Fame photo contest. HOF officials removed it from a display earlier this week.

“In the spirit of good taste we thought we’d take it down,” said Joe Horrigan, the hall’s vice president of communication and exhibits.
Fans were allowed to exchange their “Hernandez” jerseys for another Patriots’ replica jersey at Gillette Stadium last weekend and more than 1,000 fans showed up and participated.
