The Patriots star tight end was suspended just one game for his actions.
Clark, who played against Gronkowski three times a Pittsburgh Steeler, argued that White's teammates let him down by not coming to his defense in the moment.
"He said the whole hood want 'em, you know what I mean?" "The whole hood want Gronk, for sure", Clark said on ESPN Radio.
Midway through the fourth quarter in the Patriots' 23-3 win on Sunday, after an interception of Tom Brady by White on a pass intended for Gronkowski, the tight end jumped towards White when he was on the ground giving him a forearm/elbow to the back of the head.
The entire play surrounding the Gronkowski hit was a mess in Sunday. The Bills cornerback was already a defenseless player.
Gronkowski was frustrated that no flag was thrown on a play where he appeared to be held, so he chose to take it out on White. Clark said his "big, jolly frat-guy persona" allowed him to get away with "a bad decision that put somebody else's career and livelihood in jeopardy". "But boy, when you see something like that and it happens right in front of you, me as a quarterback, I might have ran over and gave him a good shot". On Monday, Bills coach Sean McDermott disagreed with the idea that his players failed to stick up for White. The referees handle things and we have to play within the rules.
"I definitely want to apologise to [White]", he said via NBC Sports Boston.
Shortly after the Week 13 loss, Bills' safeties Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer acknowledged that this incident would carry over into the team's Week 16 meeting on Christmas Eve at Gillette Stadium.
