"Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson has been suspended from the A&E reality series, following anti-gay remarks he made in an interview with GQ magazine.

 

In a statement, A+E Networks said he had been placed on indefinite hiatus.

 

Tell us on Facebook: Did A&E do the right thing?

 

"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,'" the company said. "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."

 

Robertson caused controversy with his comments, in which he grouped gays with "drunks" and "terrorists," and said that they won't "inherit the kingdom of God."

Asked what he considered sinful, Robertson told the magazine, "Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there -- bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men."

 

Robertson has described himself as a product of the '60s who engaged in the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle, but has since embraced Jesus Christ as his savior.

GLAAD excoriated Robertson for the interview, accusing him of pushing "vile and extreme stereotypes."

 

"Phil and his family claim to be Christian, but Phil's lies about an entire community fly in the face of what true Christians believe," GLAAD spokesman Wilson Cruz said.

 

"He clearly knows nothing about gay people or the majority of Louisianans — and Americans — who support legal recognition for loving and committed gay and lesbian couples.

 

Phil's decision to push vile and extreme stereotypes is a stain on A&E and his sponsors who now need to reexamine their ties to someone with such public disdain for LGBT people and families."

He could care less. A&E needs them more than they need A&E.

Wanna bet? There is no shortage of braind dead rednecks in the country. A&E will be around long after those simpletons are gone, and can easily replace them with another set of simpletons just like them. Can you remeber the the show they replaced on A&E? Exactly, and nobody will remember them after they've been replaced either.

Yeah, I wanna bet. These guys were multi millionaires way before A&E. There was a run in early in the series when the network would not air the closing scene at the dinner table with Phil giving the blessing. He told them, fine, show is over and walked out.

 

Your problem is that you have no understanding of the real world and there are folks that do not think the world revolves around pop culture.

 

The biggest reason that he doesn't care is that his customers think just as he does.

 

Come to think of it, it would be hilarious for the queers to call for a boycott on Duck Commander.

 

These are real people, and not your typical tv folks. They will tell A&E to shove it.

The left is the most intolerant people there are. I see a great deal of hypocrisy in the intolerance of GLAAD, A&E and all the other gay lobbies.

 

I am free to disagree with their lifestyle, they are free to disagree with me, who gave them more of a right than I have? Intolerance goes both ways!

I say good for Phil...Nice to see a real celebrity stand up for his own beliefs. I agree Crimson, If A&E are stupid enough to give up Duck Dynasty I'm sure another network will take the money. How long can you play reruns of Law & Order and stay on the air?

Right. Because the day the swamp rats leave, they'll just cease to exist. Television shows come, and television shows go. The swamp rats won't be an exception to that rule.

Homosexuality is a vile and extreme lifestyle thus Phil Robertson is right.

 

Has the war begun?

 

I am canceling my cable because it is controlled by evil people that let A&E control speech.

 

Evil prospers when Evil People are allowed to contol speech in violation of "Freedom of Speech".

 

Its time to bring Cable under FCC control.

You consider Christians as brain dead and I consider the homosexuals as brain dead.

 

Now who has the AIDS problem?

 

Homosexuality is a diseased lifestyle that should never be encouraged.

 

Progressives, Liberals, Atheists, Socialists and Democrats are evil people because they advocate homosexuality, adultery and drugs that lead to disease, death, destruction and poverty.

 

Chrisitans are good people because they warn people about the dangers of homosexuality, adultery and drugs.

What a bunch of ignorant, jerk off, bearded, crap dressing and pretending to be

macho men with camos, red neck azzholes.

 

Now, you know why the USA has become a third world, repukicon country with

these azzholes voting in tea baggers and repukes.

 

And Martin Bashir who said someone should take a dump in sarah palin's mouth

gets taken off the air. Go figure. Bashir said the most intelligent thing anyone

has ever said about repukes.

Keeping score...we'll chalk you up as 'undecided'...vag vs. man's anus.

 

Personally, I thought he was stating the obvious. Maybe I spoke too soon.

This is the country we live in today. Get used to it. You can say what ever you want about Christians but state a belief about one of the protected liberal minority groups, and you are done.

In the end, this is better for them. TV is a waste of time. 99.99% of the programming is pure garbage.

 

 

 

Wait! Did William really compare what Martin said to what the duck guy said? LMAO!

I don't see what he said as being so horrible. He didn't attack anyone. He talked about sin according to the bible and said he preferred the vigina over the anus. That's what people are so upset about? Oh wait, that's what a couple of people are upset about? LOL!

 

A&E can do whatever they want. I think this is silly.

I personally like only women, and well, my right hand which is so much

less expensive and gives me about as much pleasure as any diseased

selfish, azzhole bitch like isabel.

well, sure, among redneck guys screwing each other, then, on to cows, sheep, etc.

That is pretty much a given in the red states.

Like to see little ol' Willie get in Phil's face and we'll see who is the macho man..... Liber's are so brave hiding behind their computers..... :D

you forget those redneck azzholes only travel in packs like pieces of [excrement] KKK lynching little black boys. I would rather take them out with a sniper rifle like they shoot

ducks from hiding.

Wait! Did William really compare what Martin said to what the duck guy said? LMAO!
Actually, anyone taking a dump into sarah palin's mouth is so much more accurate
as to how people feel toward tea baggers and repukicons than what a redneck is saying
about his love life and screwing guys, then on to animals. Some rednecks might prefer
women. But everyone wants to crap in sarah's mouth since that is all she dribbles out.
