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 Robertsons 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.
Are they on Netflix?
Somebody piss in your cornflakes?
Salamander posted a link. I contacted them and urge everyone else that likes DD to do likewise
Some station is about to get an amazing boost in ratings...
If I were them, I’d have a life size cardboard standee of Phil in every single scene.
The trouble is, the only way a cable-only network can crash and burn is if the reaction is so strong is that folks cancel the whole cable bundle that includes it to drop the channel. Of course, this should accelerate the decision of folks to “cut the cable”, but I’m not sure that can hurt Hearst’s and Disney’s bottom line enough to harm the A&E brand in the estimation of its owners.
You’re gonna haft fire A&E, cause they just fired Robertson.
Free speech for me but not for thee!
How do you suspend the head of a family from a reality show about his family, filmed in their home and business?
Dear A&E: that was a shark.
I just saw this.....Words fail me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
...so does that make them the Anus & Enema network??? Eeeewww...
Walmart carries 345 Duck Dynasty products which bring in $400 million in sales annually:
I just watched miss congeniality tonight and there was a scene where Miss NY yelled to the crowd “This shows a lesbian can make it to the top”. I have seen that movie at least five times and never seen that scene before. It must have been recently added in or rescued from the edit room floor.
Don’t know about baby clothes, but I have a Si air freshner in my car right now. Do I now own a collector’s item?
