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.
“We love to hear from our fans! Drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org .”
You either agree with these Nazi’s or you are gone. Just like Paula Dean.
There are two things that are untouchable in this country, Negroes and Queers.
A&E just bowed down to the gay mafia. So I will be boycotting them and their advertisers. Make sure to email them and tell them that.
What the Robertson's should do is take their show to Netflix or Amazon, or do what Beck did and make their own channel.
Finally, I have watched every episode of DD and I don't really think a gay person would be interested in the show. This is just the gay mafia attacking a show because it promotes: Faith, Family, the 2nd Amendment, hunting, ect...
Everything the left hates. So show them they can rot by boycotting them!
Well here’s where we need some Stout Hearted Men to step up... and I mean those who get it from God.
Really, we have a very wimpy gospel model today in most churches. And it shows. Bring back something corresponding to knights errant (which meant they were out there to perform “random acts of chivalry” not that they kept making mistakes).
Aha, good catch. He just might be playing “Brer Rabbit” with them, and the A&E would never know it, because they don’t read those politically incorrect books!
“Oh no! Please don’t fire me Mr. A&E! Anything but that!”
A married ex-gay. With he-man redneck sons. Talk about committing what the liberals think is the unforgivable sin!
If they don’t all walk out, they aren’t being true to themselves. Unless they wish to publicly claim they don’t agree with the statements.
I’m thinking they are all in general agreement on this subject.
I seem to recall a similar time in history say from 476 AD.
And we do not see the Westboro church people protesting the A+E network???
Damn, is this not pot calling the kettle “black”???
Thanks for the info.
Or a laptop placed discreetly in the background with gay porn running on the screen.
Let the world see what their “love” is like.
why are you going to boycott now? DD will need viewers to show we are not abandoning them. What will show the media is if their show has more viewers than ever the next show.
We have to support the DD and shows like this. We cannot back down. There are just a small number of people who are causing this stir. The media is spurring this on.
True it could work out that way. They would then gain independence. And would not have to be concerned about getting bleeped for faux vulgarity.
Sometimes getting fired is the best thing that can happen to an employee in a trap!
Funny you should mention that. I’ve heard a number of stories from media insiders who insist that the whole Don Imus “nappy-headed hoes” controversy was part of a contrived series of incidents on his radio show that was aimed at forcing the CBS radio network to fire him so he could move to another network. LOL.
...it was open gay young men in your face with their actions, kissing, etc.
Grey's Anatomy started out years ago as kinda interesting and cute...
..they have ascended to the lowest common denominator with their lesbian doctor duo who are flagrantly disgusting....(the few moments I've caught this)
In almost every movie, tv sitcom, etc they throw in a gay theme.....
....And Phil Robertson isn't allowed to have his opinion without getting fired.
The Burros are, unfortunately, full of themselves. They’ve found an angle that they know they can irritate America with, while feeling so righteous themselves. Bull, when they can show a single gay how to be straight, then I will believe the Burros have anything at all to do with God. Until then, they are baloney.
Did both. Emails to the Robertsons and A & E just now.
HA...did you read the comments by the FORBES “writer”....Clare????
