Before this interview, Jenkins had not spoken publicly about the documentary since its debut on January 15.
The explosive documentary explores Hernandez’s difficult childhood, including how he was sexually abused by a male babysitter, and how he went from an NFL player to killer.
It also looks at his advanced chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) that is believed to have influenced his violent behavior and his apparent struggles with his sexuality.
It features news coverage, old photos and videos from Hernandez’s childhood and interviews with people who knew him at the different stages of his life, including his high school lover, Dennis SanSoucie, who has previously opened up about how they both felt pressured to keep their relationship secret.
The film also touches on how Hernandez’s father would not have approved of his son being gay and was described as the type of dad who would “slap the f*ggot out of you.”
“Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez“ also includes an interview with his high school friend Dennis SanSoucie, who said they were secret lovers and the football star struggled with his sexuality.
