It's hard to know if New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski knows about the uproar surrounding Richie Incognito's racist remarks these days — with all that preparation for his women's football clinic and everything — because the NFL's favorite frat boy openly mocked an Asian fan over the weekend, calling the guy "Leslie Chow" and joking about fried rice. During his team's bye week, Gronk was hosting a Q&A with fans in Foxborough, MA Sunday night at Bar Louie Restaurant when people started dancing including an Asian man sporting a Gronk jersey, reported TMZ.  According to the gossip site: The Pats star acted surprised, and said — into a microphone for everyone to hear — "They told me he could only cook fried rice!" Then Gronk one upped himself by calling the fan "Leslie Chow" ... Ken Jeong's character from "The Hangover."At least one person in the group thought Gronk might have crossed a line -- because they immediately grabbed the mic and reminded the audience they all signed waivers agreeing to hand over ALL cell phone footage. Now if that had taken place in an NFL locker room ... tsk tsk. Anyway, someone managed to smuggle this footage of the frivolity out the front door.

If we can not get over this P.C. crap, the country is just going down the tube. I am half Swede and I am the first one to poke fun at my self and the thick headed Swede! Maybe, I should be upset with the Vikings mascot?? Just pure crap!@!! Get a life!
