Rob Gronkowski Nearly Walks Off Set After Repeatedly Being Asked About Aaron Hernandez (Video)


New England Patriots star tight end Rob Gronkowski is usually a fun-loving guy who’s partying makes Johnny Manziel look like a choir boy, but during an interview on CBS This Morning with his brothers and father Gronkowski became quickly irritated after continuously being asked about former teammate Aaron Hernandez, who is currently in jail facing first-degree murder charges.

CBS’ reporter Don Dahler didn’t get the hint that Gronkowski wasn’t going to answer any Hernandez related questions after his first “next question” response that was met by laughter from his brothers, so he continued to ask about Hernandez. After another “next question,”Dahler turned his attention to Gronkowski’s father, Gord, and stated  “It seems to me, that these two men played on opposite sides of the line, but that they had more than that in terms of being opposites.”

Gord was not comfortable answering the question (can you really call it that?) and before he could even decline answering, Gronk stood up off the couch and headed for the doors. Dahler quickly changed the subject and Gronkowski stayed, but you could tell that the two-time Pro Bowl tight end was clearly irked with the situation.

Here is the video of Dahler and Gronkowski’s exchange:
