The Robertsons’ Facebook fans may have won the battle when they convinced A&E to put Duck Dynasty back on television, but at this point, it looks like they lost the war. The show has been suffering since Phil Robertson shared his controversial views on homosexuality and race relations, and now, a recent disappointment at the Iowa State Fair suggests that soon, the Duck Dynasty craze will be a thing of the past.
Duck Dynasty has been a hot topic in the media as of late, thanks to Phil Robertson’s controversial views on homosexuality and race relations. Now, the famous reality family is turning up the heat in a completely different way — by launching their own take on the iconic Louisiana hot sauce!
Most of the Robertson family’s Facebook fans are satisfied to tune in to Duck Dynasty each week, or, at most, invest in Duck Commander gear. But a small subset of dedicated fans recently opted for the full Duck Dynasty experience, joining Phil, Al, Jase and Willie Robertson for an exclusive cruise.
If you’re one of the many Twitter or Facebook fans that loves tuning in to watch Duck Dynasty each week, then surely you were overjoyed to learn that Robertson family friend, Justin Martin got engaged last month. Recently, Martin discussed the engagement and whether or not he plans to wed on the popular television show!
The Robertson family is already incredibly influential in the world of reality television, but now, they’re shaking up the music industry! Following the success of the Duck Dynasty clan’s holiday album, Uncle Si has decided to release his own country EP. He’s tapped a number of surprising sources in his quest for country music fame.
In many ways, Jase Robertson is a younger version of his dad — just look at that beard! But the Duck Dynasty star takes a decidedly different approach to religion. While his father is once again receiving Facebook criticism in response to a controversial sermon, the younger Robertson admits that he doesn’t think church attendance is necessarily vital to being a good Christian.
We assumed that the huge Phil Robertson controversy was over when A&E decided to bring back Duck Dynasty, but that might not be the case. Facebook critics are pointing to a recently released video of an Easter sermon as proof that, not only did Robertson mean one hundred percent of what he said in GQ, he’s still willing to put his show at risk by making inflammatory remarks.
Despite the controversy on Twitter or Facebook earlier this year surrounding Phil Robertson, the patriarch on Duck Dynasty, the Robertson clan is still one of America’s favorite families. And if you’ve been missing watching the bearded rednecks every week, you’re in luck because the new season of the show is set to kick off next month!
Having already achieved success in the duck call business and on reality television, the Robertson family is now taking over the music biz. Last year, the Duck Dynasty clan released a Christmas album, but that wasn’t enough for Uncle Si — he’s decided to go solo!
Duck Dynasty recently ended its fifth season with one of its most touching episodes yet. The family showed its support as the adorable Mia Robertson pursued yet another cleft palate surgery. But in spite of all the praise on Facebook, the finale still performed abysmally when compared to the final episode for season four. Could continued fallout from the Phil Robertson controversy be to blame?
