why should normal people be persecuted because of a few homosexual perverts???...'Duck Dynasty' Star Phil Robertson Suspended Over Anti-Gay Remarks
A&E has suspended "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson following anti-gay comments he made in a recent GQ profile, according to a report by Entertainment Weekly.
In an interview with GQ's Drew Magary, the head of the family in the wildly popular A&E series expressed his view that homosexuality was immoral, likening it to bestiality. Some of the remarks were made using off-color language.
Backlash was widespread and pronounced, including condemnation from GLAAD and the Human Rights Campaign.
On Wednesday evening, A&E released this statement to Entertainment Weekly:
“We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty. His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely."
Entertainment Weekly added that the rest of the family starring in "Duck Dynasty" will remain on the program.
exactly what i said: nothing but grief.
what?! did you think he'd get a pass? i'm sure you folks aren't that naive.
by the way, Phil will be back..."indefinite hiatus" means until it blows over...
suck it up, queer boy...
