Rob Gronkowski mocks Asian fan: ‘They told me he could only cook fried rice’ (Video)
New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski held a friendly Q&A with fans at Bar Louie Restaurant in Foxboro on Sunday night. During said Q&A, Gronk reminded us of why Bill Belichick must hold his breath every time the 24-year-old makes a public appearance.
At one point, Gronkowski began poking fun at a fan who started dancing. The fan, who happened to be Asian, was wearing Gronk’s jersey. After the gentleman entertained everyone by cutting a rug, Gronkowski made a regrettable comment into the microphone.
“They told me he could only cook fried rice,” Gronk said.
The remark was followed by some awkward laughing. Rather than stopping there, Gronkowski called the man “Leslie Chow,” referencing Ken Jeong’s character in “The Hangover.” Yikes.
One of the people who was hosting the event then took the microphone to remind everyone that they signed a waiver saying they would turn over any cell phone footage they took, though it sounded like the guy was joking. In any event, it was a poor choice of words from Gronkowski. Damn Gronk — always up to no good.
