A&E Kicks Phil Robertson off Duck Dynasty for Comparing Homosexuality to Bestiality
December 19, 2013
Soon we will all be looked down upon and punished by society just because we choose to voice our opinions. This is becoming a world of super sensitivity! GOD bless Phil! By Susan Duclos Entertainment Weekly is reporting that A&E has suspended the patriarch of the Duck Dynasty show, Phil Robertson, for his quoted comments from a GQ interview where he stated ““It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.” The network issued the following statement to EW: “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.” The Entertainment Weekly article has been confirmed by multiple other reports, including Daily News and Deadline.
