The writers over at Family Feud sure have a twisted sense of humor. But to his credit, the New England Patriots' resident Dude Bro Rob Gronkowski handled it like a champ. A dude bro champ, but a champ nonetheless.
While appearing with his Gronk Clan on Celebrity Family Feud, the NFL star went up against Holly Robinson Peete and her family. Right off the bat, host Steve Harvey hit him and Peete with a question that caused Gronk to channel his inner politician:
"Name something that can be inflated of deflated."
In case you missed the memo, the Super Bowl-winning New England Patriots have been the subject of an investigation over whether their footballs during the AFC Championship game were intentionally deflated to give the team an advantage. Or Deflategate, as most call it. So this question was kind of a sore subject, and Gronk basically just bowed out of answering it.
He did eventually have a response later on in the round, and as you can see on the board, "football" was the number two answer.
