Phil Robertson and been suspended from the Duck Dynasty show for an indefinite period of time according to A&E Television. Comments he made in GQ Magazine article sparked outrage in the gay and lesbian community, with GLAAD demanding to know if A&E supported Phil’s comments (see “GLAAD Not Happy, Happy, Happy”). A&E released a statement saying “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. His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community.”
I’m interested to see how this all pans out. Duck Dynasty is A&E’s top show and Phil Robertson is its biggest star. Is A&E really going to fire him because he said what he believes, or are they hoping this blows over? Time will tell. In the meantime, tell us what you think in the “Leave a Reply” section below.
