It didn’t take long for New England Patriots tight end Rob Gr0nkowski to find himself back in off the field news, as just three weeks after his return to the field, he is once again in the middle of some controversial issues.

In this video (courtesy of TMZ), Gronkowski is at a Q&A session in a bar in Foxboro, and he is seen mocking an Asian fan of his, making a joking comment about ‘fried rice’, and ‘Leslie Chow’. As great as Gronk is on the football field, he continually finds himself in situations similar to these, which is not good for him, the Patriots, or whoever is involved in that particularly scenario.

This was also a little ill-timed, given the recent incident involving Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin of the Miami Dolphins. Obviously this was not nearly as bad as that situation, but never the less, it is never good to see a player of Gronk’s status making comments like that, and unfortunately, these types of things are something that we have grown accustomed to, when it comes to news surrounding big number 87. As is the case for his “extravaganzas” in the past, we hope that he is able to grow up a little bit, and not make immature mistakes like this as he moves forward in his NFL career.
