Rob Gronkowski does not want to talk about Aaron Hernandez.

In fact, the the New England Patriots tight end almost walked out of an interview with CBS's Don Dahler after the host repeatedly asked him about Hernandez once Gronkowski made it clear that he wouldn't discuss the subject.

The 24-year-old NFL player was being interviewed alongside his family for a segment to air on "CBS This Morning" when Dahler inquired about his reaction to the first-degree murder charges that Hernandez is facing.

"Next question," Gronkowski said, prompting his family to chuckle and Dahler to insist.

"It had to be a shock for you. It had to be a shock for all your teammates," he noted.

Dahler's remark was followed by another "next question" from the player, at which point the interviewer switched gears, faced Gronkowski's father and began asking him about Hernandez.

Gronkowski then waved his hand, stood, said, "I'll walk off right now," and began taking off the microphone when Dahle promised to back off.

Hernandez, 23, was recently charged for the June 2013 murder of his friend and former semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd.
