FOXBOROUGH — Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski apologized Friday for comments that were picked up on a cellphone video of him and interpreted by many as racially insensitive.
On the clip, Gronkowski, speaking into a microphone, is heard calling for an Asian male named Joe to come out to the dance floor at Bar Louie, an establishment at Patriot Place. The assembled crowd soon joins in, with the group chanting, “Joe! Joe! Joe!”
