This week, fans tuned into A&E for the Duck Dynasty season finale, where Jase Robertson’s daughter Mia geared up for and then underwent her fifth cleft lip and palate surgery. Recently, Jase opened up about putting his daughter out there for public scrutiny, as well as his father Phil’s controversial comments with GQ. What did our favorite bearded redneck have to say?
Most fans seem to agree that Duck Dynasty’s Robertson family are definitely one of a kind, and a refreshing change for us to watch, instead of all the other Kardashian like shows out there. I don’t know about you, but I’d watch Duck Dynasty every night of the week if it was on. Unfortunately though, the show’s season ended this week with Jase and Missy Robertson’s daughter Mia having another surgery for her cleft lip and palate (a condition that 11-year-old Mia was born with).
And many fans were left wondering if Jase and Missy were just a little bit worried about putting their daughter out there for the public to scrutinize. “Of course, that was a worry. There have been times when kids made fun of her for how she looks. We’ve had to have some serious talks about it,” Jase Robertson told People Magazine recently. For the Robertsons though, they want to raise awareness about the condition.
If you’re a fan of the show, then you already know that Jase loves to show his brothers that he is the most manly of the Robertson kids, but that doesn’t mean that deep down inside, Jase doesn’t have some real emotions like the rest of us. In fact, there is nothing that gets Jase more emotional than having to hand off his daughter to a team of doctors. Robertson even admitted that when they took Mia in for surgery, he lost it. To learn more about Mia Robertson’s condition, check out Mia Moo Fund, a page the family has set up because they feel that “every child deserves a smile.” We couldn’t agree more!
Meanwhile, Jase Robertson also opened up about the controversy that rocked Twitter or Facebook a few months ago, when Phil Robertson made some comments that some considered to be anti-gay. Robertson said that he felt uneasy about the interview to begin with, and was upset about how it was taken out of context.
“My dad is the most non-racist person I’ve ever been around my entire life. We were taught at an early age that you don’t base any kind of opinion on people’s external appearance. Everyone was made by God. That was the part that made us a little mad, to make it sound like my father is a racist,” Robertson went on to explain. Jase also revealed that when the boys were in school, they would always stand up for those who were different because that is how they were raised.
I don’t know about you, but I love this family more than ever and can’t wait for the new season.
