According to Jon Scott of SPEC News Buffalo, White voiced his disgruntlement with the length of the ban that Gronkowski received from the league.

It’s a joke. I don’t know what to say on that. I’m laying there, he [hit] me with my back turned. He could’ve broken my neck. I’ve got a son to raise. All of that people don't think about that. Just react. That's neither here or there. It is what it is.”
White also added that Gronkowski hasn't reached out to him to apologize in the days that have followed. The NFL deemed that the hit was on a “defenseless” player that violated the “unnecessary roughness” rule. Gronkowski threw his shoulder into White's back as he laid out of bounds well after the conclusion of the play.
Gronkowski did voice after the game that he let his emotions get the best of him in that situation, but he hasn't addressed the situation in wake of the suspension. The hit could have resulted in far worse injuries for White, who was concussed.
It will be interesting to see if Gronkowski decides to reach out to White to make amends for his actions some time in the future.
