“Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson has been fired from the reality program following his controversial remarks in GQ magazine regarding homosexuality.

A+E Networks, parent company of A&E, has released the following statement to Variety:

“We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty. His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community.”

Well past time.

LAKE TOWNSHIP, Michigan — Republican Gov. Rick Snyder has condemned GOP National Committeeman Dave Agema's statement that gay people are seeking health insurance for same-sex partners because they are dying of AIDS and want free medical care.

‘Duck Dynasty’: Phil Robertson Suspended Indefinitely Following Gay Remarks

It was only a matter or time before the family's morals caught the network's attention - and having gone four seasons, there's enough "in the can" to syndicate the series and not renew it.

I'm laughing, because the suspension is getting annouced after the market's close, so that it doesn't affect Walmart's stock price!

I hope his entire family simple says they will not do the show without him. Let them CHOKE on that!

Left wing fascism at its worst.

No way the rest of the family will stand for that, but unfortunately that is exactly what the left wanted. The show to be off the air.

Most definitely not.

So what A&E is saying if you don't believe the way they believe you're going to be canceled. So much for free speech. It died a long time ago.

Maybe he can repent by shoving a red candle up his butt like DeCrappio did in ‘’The Wolf of Wall Street’’. That should make the homos happy.

Not a huge surprise. As god fearing, non-PC conservatives, It’s more surprising they have been tolerated this long.

If the kids can follow suit they should walk off and give them a one finger salute. But they have more class than that. Unlike the hateful progressives.

How do you “suspend” the head of a family from a “reality” show about his family, filmed in their home and business? I guess they’re just going to have to keep filming with him around and try to edit out any time they catch him on camera.

If I were part of this family, I’d be having none of this. They probably can’t outright refuse to do the show without him, due to contractual obligations, but they certainly can make sure that they are doing boring stuff anytime the A&E cameras show up and Phil isn’t around.

Shut 'er down and move to another network.

Or start your own like Glenn Beck did.

This is actually a great opportunity.

Glenn Beck can pick up this show.

It fits with his effort to bypass the MSM.

Mark my words, If this show is cancelled, Beck will put them on his Mercury One network.

Like Phil cares one wit if he is “suspended” from some yuppie program!

If A&E is dumb enough to lose their biggest show, let them try to squeeze money out of the sodomites.
