Gronk shuts down Twitter troll in 'Mean Tweets'

Gronk and other NFL stars read mean tweets about themselves on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" this week.

Rob Gronkowski may not be playing in Sunday's game, but he, of course, is still in the spotlight and fighting off haters.

On an episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" this week, Gronk and other NFL players fought off the Twitter trolls in a new "Mean Tweets" segment. Gronk was joined by Tony Romo, Russell Wilson, Kurt Warner and others who read aloud the mean things people on Twitter think of them.

Gronk, with a straight face, reads a tweet insulting his intelligence and he shuts it down immediately.

"Rob Gronkowski is one of the dumbest people in the world. I have no problem reading tweeting this because he probably can't read it," the tweet said. 

"I just read it. You're dumb," he countered.

File that under: mic drop.
