Who’s bearded, bandana’ed, has a new gun line and ready to move on in 2014? Willie Robertson, that’s who. The Duck Dynasty star has remained fairly quiet since his dad Phil Robertson’s controversial comments in a GQ interview were released, save for the official statement he and his family gave immediately afterward. Now, the duck-loving (or hating, depending how you look at it) Louisianan is speaking out, and here’s the bottom line – he’s so over it, y’all.
The cliche “no publicity is bad publicity” just might ring true when it comes to the Duck Commander brand. On the heels of last month’s huge Phil Robertson controversy, the Duck Dynasty family is launching a new line of firearms — and the recent burst of attention should only serve to bolster sales.
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.
