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.
Showbiz is allll about money?
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.
Or start your own like Glenn Beck did.
Well, if he wanted to Phil could run for the Senate and win, but he would rather be hunting.
The man could spend $2000 a day for the rest of his life and not run out.
<4% of the population runs this country with a stinky velvet fist.
We should have a Duck Dynasty Day like the Chik-Fil-A day.
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.
Is A & E now a Fag Network?
If so, that will make it real easy to boycott that channel.
This nation may be at the end of the line.
The anus-lovers of A&E have spoken.
I KNEW IT. Gayness is today’s Holy Grail. Sickening.
I need to get contact info on A&E for the calls.
I hope not. I really like the “Longmire” show.
I’ll bet Mrs. Phil Robertson does not “suspend” him.
If you’re REALLY outraged, cancel your cable. Yeah...that’s happening. That is why the left has conservatives on the run...all talk, no action.
It’s just the point. Free speech for perverts but not for Godly men. I hope they do cancel it. I hope CMT or some other network picks it up.
Let ‘em know you won’t be supporting their advertisers.
What a freaking joke.
All he did was list homosexuality among other sins.
