Duck Dynasty is down a star.
A&E, which airs the reality show that follows the duck-hunting and duck call-creating Robertson family, has suspended patriarch Phil Robertson indefinitely from filming following his anti-gay comments printed in GQ.
“We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty,” says a statement from the network. “His personal views in no way reflect those of A&E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”
In his interview with GQ, Robertson, 67, used stereotypes to describe certain groups and likened homosexuality to bestiality.
“We never, ever judge someone on who’s going to heaven, hell. That’s the Almighty’s job,” Robertson also said. “We just love ’em, give ’em the good news about Jesus – whether they’re homosexuals, drunks, terrorists.”
What were you thinking? You grouped homosexuals with drunks and terrorists? Say Bye, bye new career!
