Video: Kluwe makes Aaron Hernandez joke on Conan


Former Vikings punter Chris Kluwe did another national interview, this time with Conan O'Brien.

Kluwe was again supporting same-sex marriage. At the tail end of the clip below, Kluwe made a joke about Patriots tight end, Aaron Hernandez, who is facing first-degree murder chargers. It started when Conan asked Kluwe how the NFL treats his outward support of same-sex marriage.

“What about the NFL?” host Conan O’Brien asked. “Where’s the NFL in all this.”

“They pretty much left me alone,” Kluwe said. “As long as you’re not out shooting people . . . .”
