Duck Dynasty mainstay, Phil Robertson, has been indefinitely kicked off of the show for comments condemning gays.
I thought it said "A Duck Dynasty Star Wars Canned..." hahaha
He can say anything he wants, but he's going to have to face the repercussions as well. That's how freedom of speech works. Try not being a creepy religious nut bag.
How did he insult anyone in the interview??? He could have easily said worse things. Totally, ridiculous.
Even a slight hint that you don't agree with homosexuality will get you in trouble now a days. Pretty pathetic if you ask me.
"How did he insult anyone in the interview?" You mean the whole rant on how blacks had it so good during the days of Jim Crow (which should be the real focus)? Totally not offensive at all brah. No one should be surprised that a mean that looks the way he does has contempt for gays and a bizarre view on African American politics.
Your are joking right? Phoceenatic's comment is spot on.
Or maybe it was lumping together of gays and beastiality, protstitution, terrorism, alcoholism, and addiction. Wait that's not offensive at all /sarcasm. Regardless A&E has the right to not agree with comments and as an employer also has the right to terminate employment. Freedom of speech only protects you from government action.
Right! While Oprah gets free passes for being racist all the time.
Despite how repugnant you may or may not feel about his remarks, I think we can all agree that this reality TV sham has gone on far too long. The second it starts to get to 'real' the producers freak out. The show is supposed to be an unfiltered look at the lives of its subjects, but the second one of the goes off script he gets pulled from the show. Maybe they could 'write' in a gay character?
Just wait to you hear what the "Slapchop" guy said in an interview. Why is this even a show? A bunch of dumb rednecks trying to portray some sort of all American family who struck it rich off a noise maker. Come on people! Like I care about some rednecks opinion.
"A Bunch of dumb rednecks" You realize half of the guys on this show have genius level IQs right? they are smarter than you. http://ll-media.extratv.com... Looks can be deceiving.
Ok, a bunch of dumb clean-cut rednecks, which grow out their hair for the show.
You obviously don't understand what "freedom of speech" is, do you?
Is it too late to blame Obama for this, too?
I already thought it was his fault.
Ok...but A&E know what he's like. He's a hardcore Baptist Christian. I personally am not religious. But it's annoying when religious individuals like many, pick n choose what in the Bible they wish to adhere to or believe in. Old Testament doesn't exist because the new testament edits out the holy wrath crap. As for science....while homosexuality is a part of nature, it doesn't contribute to evolution...and though it's not a choice, I fail to see how homosexuality is any different than any other abnormality? I'm not being mean here....just looking at it objectively. I have empathy for all human beings. I do not believe that gays are any less than the rest of us. But I will not pretend that it's a natural state of human evolution. And if science does ever discover the gene that's malfunctioning....which they say they are close; I fear the sh1tstorm that's inbound! We can change eye color, determine cancer risk and even if a individual is predisposed to anger issues...it's in our genes.
A show like this can only run in America, Hillbillies shooting Ducks.
I don't think he should have been suspended over this.
