When Duck Dynasty premiered a few seasons ago, folks weren’t quite sure what to expect out of the bearded clan of rednecks. But now, you can easily confirm by visiting either Twitter or Facebook that the duck hunting, God loving, Robertson family has become one of America’s favorite television families. So, it really is no surprise that when the family chose to do the show, it wasn’t for fame or fortune!
The guys from Duck Dynasty have certainly made a name for themselves in the reality television world and a big part of that is due to their iconic bushy beards. You can often find fans on both Facebook and Twitter debating hot topics surrounding the family, including their famous beards. So, with that in mind, the question would be which cast member’s beard deserves the prize of Best Beard.
Looks like people’s feathers are still a little ruffled following the Phil Robertson controversy last month. The Duck Dynasty star launched a firestorm with his homophobic and racially charged comments in a GQ interview in December, and now the series might be paying the ultimate price.
During yesterday’s episode of Duck Dynasty, fans were treated to the introduction of a brand new cast member. And as in last season’s cast switch-up, the newbie is 100 percent beardless — thankfully! Her name is Rebecca Robertson and she is the adopted daughter of Willie and Korie. What else did we learn about Rebecca during the Duck Dynasty season premiere?
Now that all the Phil Robertson drama is in the past, America’s redneck lovers can get back into their favorite weekly routine — you know, laughing at Uncle Si’s crazy shenanigans on Duck Dynasty! The popular reality series is back and, based on previews for season five, the Robertson clan is back to the usual wholesome tomfoolery.
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!
