You’ve heard plenty about Phil Robertson’s views on race and homosexuality, thanks to a very controversial interview with GQ. But it looks like the drama isn’t over for the Duck Dynasty star. Critics are now decrying a recently discovered video in which Phil espouses some rather contentious advice about finding the perfect wife.
Happy, happy, happy! That didn’t take too long, now did it? Less than two weeks after A&E decided to suspend Phil Robertson from any further taping of Duck Dynasty for his supposed anti-gay comments, the network has decided to reinstate the Robertson patriarch. Way to go fans, Phil will be back on our screens soon and will be taping new episodes!
And…the never-ending Duck Dynasty controversy continues. This time, Sarah Palin is taking nearly as much heat as Phil Robertson. The politician immediately jumped to the reality TV patriarch’s defense after learning of his predicament. Turns out, she never actually read the GQ interview!
When A&E decided to suspend Phil Robertson from any further taping of Duck Dynasty for his anti-gay comments in GQ, they clearly did not consider the backlash they would receive from fans. However, the I stand with Phil petition is still growing and social media pages in support of the show’s patriarch are still exploding less than two weeks after what was likely the network’s biggest mistake ever.
Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson broke his silence earlier this week regarding his controversial remarks about gays in a recent interview, and now someone else close to the reality star is speaking out – his minister. In the most unsurprising news of all time, the religious leader is backing Phil 100 percent, adding his voice to the thousands who have chimed in to show support for the Duck Commander founder.
There’s a lot of hate (and some love too) directed at the Duck Dynasty clan right now, but one thing is clear – Phil Robertson and his family will have plenty of other TV opportunities if A&E ditches them. TMZ is reporting that a couple of other networks have expressed interest in the Bearded Ones and their duck call empire, so it doesn’t look like we’ll be saying farewell to the Robertsons anytime soon.
Phil Robertson has finally broken his silence regarding his controversial remarks about gay people in a recent interview with GQ, and guess what? He’s not backing down. Big surprise there, right? The bearded patriarch of Duck Dynasty created a sh*tstorm of controversy with his remarks and was subsequently suspended from the hit reality show, and it seems everyone everywhere has an opinion on the matter. Phil, however, has remained silent since the news broke…until now.
Phil Robertson made some very controversial remarks about race and sexual orientation in a recent interview for GQ, and, as a result, has been suspended by A&E. This Duck Dynasty drama has drawn all kinds of supporters out of the woodwork, including fellow reality star Josh Duggar! How did the eldest son on 19 Kids and Counting respond to A&E’s decision?
And the controversy surrounding Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson continues…. This time, however, A&E is under fire for allegedly knowing about Phil’s beliefs for years, and then acting all surprised when the reality star spoke honestly about his feelings during the GQ interview. Say what you will about Phil, but it sounds like A&E should be sharing a little of the blame here.
Phil Robertson was suspended recently from any further taping of Duck Dynasty by A&E, after he did an interview in which the network thought his remarks were offensive. Now, the family has issued a statement, and it sounds like there will be no more show without the Robertson patriarch.
