Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski doesn’t want to talk about former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez. And if Gronkowski has to walk out of a TV interviewer to avoid talking about Hernandez, he’ll do it.
Dan Dahler of CBS News found that out when interviewing Gronkowski and his family, a family that includes three brothers in the NFL, one brother in college football and one brother who’s a former minor league baseball player. The interview was mostly about the family, but when Dahler began to ask a question about Hernandez, Gronkowski said he wouldn’t talk about it.
“Next question. I learned that from Drew Rosenhaus,” Gronkowski said.
Dahler started to ask another question about Hernandez, and Gronkowski repeated, “Next question.”
When Dahler then started to ask Gronkowski’s dad about Hernandez, Rob Gronkowski stood up and started to walk off.
Dahler pleaded, “Don’t walk off. I’ll change the subject.”
And with that, the subject of Aaron Hernandez was over.
