Patriarch of ‘Duck Dynasty’ off show indefinitely after anti-gay comments

LOS ANGELES — “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson is off the hit A&E reality series indefinitely after disparaging gays as sinners akin to adulterers and swindlers, the network said.

A&E announced Wednesday what it called a “hiatus” for Robertson, 67, after he disparaged gays in the January edition of GQ magazine. He also said that, growing up in Louisiana before the Civil Rights movement, he never saw mistreatment of blacks.

In a statement, A&E said it was extremely disappointed to see Robertson’s anti-gay remarks, which it said were based on his personal beliefs and do not reflect those of A&E Networks or the show. A&E called itself a supporter of the lesbian and gay community.

The channel’s move was lauded by the gay and lesbian media advocacy group GLAAD, which had quickly condemned Robertson’s comments.

“What’s clear is that such hateful anti-gay comments are unacceptable to fans, viewers, and networks alike,” said GLAAD spokesman Wilson Cruz. Robertson’s removal “has sent a strong message that discrimination is neither a Christian nor an American value.”

Robertson and his extended family became wealthy manufacturing duck calls and were turned into TV and pop culture stars by “Duck Dynasty,” which has set cable ratings records for a non-fiction series. Several family members appeared in this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving parade.

In his GQ interview, Robertson was asked his definition of sinful behavior.

“Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there,” such as bestiality, he said.

GQ said he then paraphrases a biblical reference: “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers – they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

Robertson and his family had no comment on his hiatus, A& E said on their behalf. He may be in some previously taped scenes when the show returns Jan. 15 for its fifth season, a network spokesman said.

Robertson did respond to initial criticism of his GQ remarks.

“I myself am a product of the ’60s” who indulged in sex and drugs until hitting bottom and accepting Jesus as his savior, he said in a statement. Although his mission is to teach people that men and women are meant to be together, Robertson said he “would never treat anyone with disrespect” because they are different.

In the interview, he also said that in his Louisiana youth he picked cotton with African-Americans and never saw “the mistreatment of any black person. Not once.”

“We’re going across the field…. They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, ‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’ – not a word!” Robertson told the magazine.

A&E said it had received no complaints about those remarks.

  4. what’s freedom of speech

    Posted on Thursday, December 19, 2013 at 2:10am
  5. free speech means that you can say whatever you want. it doesn't mean you're not liable to the consequences of what you say. you're free to express your opinion, no one is stopping you. free speech is not a shield, not the way people think it is. it's the freedom to say whatever you want, but NOT free of consequence.

  9. My main thing is that a lot of times when people get mad or offended they try to "extort" or "blackmail" people off the air by going after advertisers and financial backing, I disagree with the guy, but he has every right to have an opinion, hell, they probably would find issue with me being muslim (even a non practicing one at that) but that's their opinion

  61. Sorry Josh, but that sounds entirely untrue. You're upset someone said, "I'm glad A&E took a stand"? That man was misrepresenting a brand and television network and that is why he is band. The program may or may not believe the same thing, but they took him off in order to not loose popularity. You have to learn that when on television that you're representing other people that have given you all of these things (such as merch. and the tv show) Hate makes you "an asshole" that's the point, misrepresenting your company makes you an asshole. Etc. That's the point.

    Replied on Thursday, December 19, 2013 at 3:16am
  62. Josh,when you work for a brand. Than it's your job to make that brand look good. If he felt that way about gay people, than he should of kept it to himself. Plus what if he said that he doesn't agree with women working jobs or preaching in church, Since the bible is against that. Would you still think that it would be wrong for A&E to take a stand? He entitle to believe what he wants. But he needs to keep in mind that what he says to the media not only effects himself, but also the organization that he works for.

Phil had so many different choices in how to answer the questions and not compromise himself or add to the hate that is so prevalent in America. It dumbs down America when people seek to say stupid things and keep the divisions going, as you yourself are proving.

  83. Opening big mouths appear to be an epidemic in this country. The only difference is which opinion one supports. Of course the person who thinks that same way "I" do, is always the enlightened one. Anyone who disagrees with how "I" think is an "ignorant redneck." Tolerance is a lesson that Mr. Roberston, as well as several folks on this discussion board would benefit from learning.

  157. Saucy: You're right, he has a right to his opinions, no one here is saying he doesn't. We ALSO have the right to our opinions, if our opinion is that we don't watch a show with someone who holds his opinions on it, that's our right. If A&E has the opinion that they don't want a bunch of outraged angry viewers who don't want to support people who hold these opinions by watching programming starring them, they have every right to act on that opinion and remove him from the show. You can't defend him for having an opinion, while slamming others for their opinions.

    Replied on Thursday, December 19, 2013 at 2:57am
  158. He also compared homosexuality to beatiality, prostitution, adultery, and more. It's these kinds of "opinions" that lead other zealots to attack, beat and kill gay people, or bully them until the commit suicide. It is these kinds of "opinions" that embolden political candidates to suggest that gay people should be hung and/or castrated. And it is my opinion that these kinds of "opinions" are the opposite of what real Christians (i.e. followers of the Christ) would think or say.

  166. He has the right to his opinion, but people also have the right to silence hate. He probably did not know the consequences of his statements because the majority of society believes in the same backward thing. Which is hate. But you're right with one thing, people saying nasty things aren't much better. Hate is hate, point blank, period, it's wrong.

The only thing about this is the show is about family and the family business no politics should have been tacked on. If one of us say something along the lines of I’m gay and I love men and we were axed from our job for our views because somebody didn’t agree agree them you’d be pissed. Everybody has a right to their beliefs we need to remember this. We as an lgbtq community know what its like to have others beleifs forced on us.

  200. I, as an out, proud, all for equality lesbian I have to say that I don’t have a problem with Phil Robertson. He has stated over and over again that he does not hate ANYONE.

    His beliefs, right or wrong in my opinion, are his business. He is not advocating for violence or hatred towards the LGBT community.

    He interprets the Bible in his way but ALSO states he does not intend to disrespect anyone or wish anyone ill. Cut him some damn slack… it’s HIS right to speak to his beliefs as it is mine to speak to mine.

    As a matter of fact, I am going over to their site and letting him know this myself.

    Equality only works when we ALL have the ability to be free. Free to speak, free to love, free to be.

    Posted on Thursday, December 19, 2013 at 2:22am
  201. I shared the article about what he said & I basically said the exact same thing. It's not right for taking him off the show, all because he has beliefs that a lot of people don't agree with. I may be gay, but in the article, he said he treats everyone the same, and with respect. So, I don't see the whole propaganda against him. He is just a down home southern man, just like me, and he's set in his ways. All he did was speak his opinion. We are all entitled to one. I may not agree with it, but I so respect it. I did not also agree with what GLAAD said to him about it. I think that all they were trying to do was force him into believing that homosexuality is fine, when it won't work. They were acting no better than the bigots we fight against for our rights.

  205. "I don't hate gays. God hates them." In my opinion, it's just placing bigotry on something that most people can't really combat with. However, I don't care lol (I never really got into the show). I've dealt with it for the most part of my short life. He has every right to say it, and A&E has every right to "suspend" aka Fire him for it. I expected him or one of the other cast members to say something along these lines eventually, and consequently see them taken off. tl;dr: Both sides are right and wrong. A&e should have expected as much from the beginning. What's his name is entitled to his freedom of speech *cough* indirect passive hatred *cough*, and A&E also has every right o get rid of him for said comments.

These actors and singers think bcause they have money fallin out their asses they can do or say anything. They should stop and think. B4 they speek. Dont they know bcause their in the spotlife. Their lives and wat they say will b under the micrascope. For all to hear and c. Dumbasses.

  244. I understand many peoples opinion in reference to this. Just an FYI, about a month ago a popular celebrity said some pretty mean things in public that the LGBT community took very seriously. That celebrity had his show canceled. The main reason for his cancelation was that the celebrity should have known better due to prior (stupid) comments. In this case stated here with the A&E celebrity it’s different. This guy is just plain ignorant. He has failed to educate himself. Their is a big difference between ignorance and stupidity.

  251. I am a lesbian Christian who believes in love, as Jesus taught. I also am told daily that I am vile and that I am going to hell, and I have been threatened for being alive (in the name of God, who I'm told hates me). I haven't seen anyone calling Phil vile or telling him he is going to hell or that he should be killed or burned at the stake or castrated -- I think you have no idea how his words hurt because you do not care. His words just keep the hate going.

Just live your life and be with who you are and stop worrying what people say about you. This is what I believe, but I think if we stop this crap now, maybe we will get more respect . I know I do from a lot of str8t people who don’t like gay people . Because I tell them it is ok you don’t have to like it and I will not force you too. And then subject dropped and we talk about everyday things . Learn how to do that

  256. So we should just all tolerate bigotry? Is that it? If he had gotten up and said the same exact thing about black people, or women, or any other demographic would it still be okay? People would still just need to "grow a backbone?" The guy's free to think & say what he wants. And A&E is free to fire him if they feel he misrepresents what they stand for. It takes more backbone to call out bigotry & hate than to just silently go along with it & let it continue.

  284. To all those who say he has the right to say what he wants are correct. People do have the right to their own opinions. However when your right to say what you want causes financial ramification to a large company they have the right to fire you. I myself could care less what he or anyone else for that matters thinks about my life. When someone tries to tell me what they think about it I simply say to them “And which one of my bills are you gonna pay this month” “Oh none then back the hell up and keep your opinions to yourself”.

He’s just perpetuating the belief that southerners are all small-minded, Bible thumpers. We’re not all like that, I promise. Those of you insulting all country folk because of the ones who say things like this, are just as guilty of stereotyping in my opinion. I’ve seen others, on other pages, saying, “oh, that’s how he was brought up.” No, you know in your heart it’s not okay to condemn others, no matter how you were raised.

Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

I know how you feel about your brother, so I never took your comment to be anything against being gay at all. Just be aware that free speech has nothing to do with the private industry. Entertainment contracts are written specifically to account for these kinds of things--it costs the company dollars, so they eliminate the cause of the problem. That's what happens when money is valued above all else.

  350. it is sad that a person can no longer have a personal belief. I don’t agree with what he believes but I defend his right to believe it. additionally he did basically say love the sinner hate the sin let god sort it out. before we condemn him for his belief we should see how he actually treats others. is he like Robertson who says don’t let your kids be around gays or is he like the pope who says it is not my place to judge that is gods place.

    See the atheist community know doctrine. They study the bible & they will assure you that this guy for the most part is right. That true Christianity isn’t compatible with homosexuality. It just isn’t. Sorry.

    LGBT are better off learning Christianity from atheist who know so much about it than to try to live in Denial about what the bible days

    LGBT is better off being logical about this & renouncing their Christian faith.

    I support LGBT

  367. his opinion has nothing to do religion but hate If you already have hate in your heart you’ll interpret the bible with hate .while I feel people shouldn’t be in celebrities’ business no one went into in personnal space or leaked his thoughts or made him go into a gq interview and say hateful false remarks . so he should except the result of his dumb action.i mean where does it stop him calling African Americans the n word , him attacking Jewish people, Latinos , Asians etc. his remarks were not ok. If they let go and ignore his words then people like him will think it’s ok to go further then words because they’ll see no one cares if the gay community is trashed. So they won’t care if they are beaten or killed. Words are powerful and can incite violience small minds can turn into huge violience

  379. Based on that excerpt of the interview… looks to me like he’s sharing his opinion and stating clearly that he “would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other.” So long as he doesn’t break that word, and does like so many others do, treat another who is different with disrespect, then i have no problem with him. Didn’t watch the show to begin with… but I do know of it…

He signed a contract and the producers of the show/and or network has the right to suspend him if they feel he or what he says is not in line with their image. While I feel sorry for his ignorance and do my best not to judge whenever I see or hear this all I can think of is some gay person who is not in a supportive environment seeing and hearing this, and taking their own life. I also don’t believe this should come as a surprise and even A&E shouldn’t be surprised. He also insinuated that “blacks” were better off under Jim Crow laws. SMH.

All someone has to do anymore is say they are offened. End of story.

  467. We don’t watch the show not my thing,but this isn’t the first time a public figure said something discriminating or derogatory . Sure it won’t be the last,but it’s better just think of the progress the rest of society is making and focus on even further progression on all fronts. intelligence common courtesy label sensitivity.let’s move on.

  470. This family doesn’t put their beliefs out for all to hear on the show. I wish he was more open but he is what he is. Doesn’t change the fact that it’s still a funny show. I will continue to watch it. When and if it becomes a show of their beliefs being forcwd upon me, I will no longer watch it

  474. free speech means anyone can say anything but it doesn't mean there aren't consequences. are you defending Phil's right to speak hatefully and you think no one else should have the right to speak in disagreement?

  477. I go to church, I’m a Christian. I read the bible, yes he has a right to his opinion. Let’s look at everyone else that said something wrong. Paula Deen lost everything for saying something she grew up being taught. I am a lesbian and God made me like he made you. I will go to heaven and have a home there.

    Posted on Thursday, December 19, 2013 at 3:07am
  478. I believe the line of “Freedom of Speech” should be limited on account of hate. Hasn’t anyone ever heard “If you don’t have anything nice to say, than don’t say anything at all”? What he said was wrong, him being suspended from the show is something that maybe could make a difference in the long run. I mean, think about it, if they had some something racial on the show ALL HELL WOULD BREAK LOOSE!!! I don’t see how sexuality, race, or gender should differ. If he wouldn’t bastardize a female or African American, or anything like that than he shouldn’t something else. No one see’s it that way because homosexuality is still “wrong” to so many people because of religion. And ya know what? This country isn’t SUPPOSED to be run based on religion, that’s what the colonists were trying to escape. Opinion or not, you should know what is and isn’t wrong to say. He just didn’t think this would happen to him.

  483. I find it extremely hypocritical that the LGBT community expects Christians to be “tolerant” of the homosexual lifestyle choice and beliefs, but can’t extend the SAME TOLERANCE to a Christian man expressing HIS beliefs based on scripture, on which he is entitled to do. According to you, we “bigoted, small minded, bible thumpers” are just supposed to shut up and accept your immorality, but you call yourselves “mainstream” and the norm. Hypocritical much?

  515. If you read his comments, they aren’t cruel or homophobic at all. They are an opinion and he’s entitled to them. They put him on the show to showcase his personality — all of it. You can’t censor that when it’s what you signed up for.

  517. Everyone has the right to speak there mind if its right or wrong where is freedom of speech oh I forgot your not free to speak. He just stated the bible then he said that he would never treat anyone with disrespect. To many people read in between the lines and not the whole statement. Don’t take just the hate and make and exemption out of it. Give this world a break. I don’t believe that gays won’t go to heaven I think they will. My beliefs and Phil’s are different he takes everything from the bible to be true. I don’t believe everything I read and yes I believe in god. But am I right or is he who knows but that’s his beliefs not mine. No one is allowed to speak there mind anymore. Bull

  524. He has the right to free speech… you idiots. It didn’t go anywhere. He exercised his right. And the channel exercised their right to fire someone for making unacceptable remarks against a certain group of people. He has the right to speak his mind…and he did. Now…he’s realizing that his negative, hurtful comments have repercussions. Good for the network. People can’t hide their hate behind the bible and Jesus anymore. That argument doesn’t work.

    Posted on Thursday, December 19, 2013 at 3:18am
  525. All you people using free speech to justify this disgusting mans hate speech are delusional. No one has taken away his right to say hate speech, he said what he said and it’s not like he was imprisoned by any means, so stop the sob story. A&E has every right to terminate an employee of their network (which he is) that says something offensive or not representative of their company values. Have your Free (Hate) Speech by all means, but be prepared to pay the consequences of stating them.

  527. I hated that show from the start, now I have a valid reason to continue hating that show! But he has a right to share his opinion just like I have the right to share mine! I always say it is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, rather than speak and remove all doubt! I still think it’s influencing hate against a particular sector of society, that’s already targeted enough, I hope he can live with that on his conscience, It also says in the bible if a women is married and found not to be a virgin, she should be stoned to death.

But you have some of different color’s or sexuality that act like they should have special treatment NO its equal treatment is what everyone should have & that goes along with being able to say how you feel about whatever. Stop maken it a freaken issue & maybe then we would ALL have EQUAL treatment. You have good & bad in ever race, sexuality, & religion etc.

  539. People,people,people. It’s not for use to judge. Only Jesus can do that. He merely stated what he feels about sex. So many people want to slam gay people. And when they do they find out how many of us are out there. I myself don’t know the reason why so many of us have a desire to like the same sex. But like there’s so many people who hate everything from Jews and every other race or different thing in the world, there will always be bias. Anything that human’s don’t understand they don’t like. People need more faith and prayer in their life than anything else right now. We need to love one another. When Jesus comes down on judgement day we are all going to be standing in the same line trying to explain why we did the things we did. No one will be able to escape that. So…… he can say whatever he wants. He will be judged worse than.some. Why????? Because he says he’s a Christian and hasn’t gotten it yet.

    Posted on Thursday, December 19, 2013 at 3:22am
  540. I think what he said was done very tactfully…..he disagreed with the lifestyle, but didn’t condemn them or say he was better….. He simply stated his belief. As a gay person you are allowed to rant and rave all you want and you call it freedom of speech , equal rights, etc….and if anyone disagrees they are automatically labeled a hater….but in reality…..aren’t you the heater with all your anti christian hate talk??? Christians should have the right to their opinion just as you deserve to have yours . After all this country was founded on the freedom of religion…. NOT the freedom from religion.
    I am proudly a Christian, but I do NOT hate people for their life choices, I hate the sin that keeps people from God.

  548. When you go to your work place don’t you act professional? That is how you’re supposed to be with a high paying job. When you’re a spokesmen for anything you have to uphold professionalism at all time because you’re representing something bigger than yourself. Simple. These are the reprecussions that would be upheld at ANY workplace, especially one as big as this television show. People whom say “FREEDOM OF SPEECH” obviously have no idea how these things work. Go to your McDonald’s job tomorrow and talk about how black people are going to Hell because they were sinners in their past life and that is why they’re black (a Mormon belief) and see how fast your ass is thrown out of there! And probably also beat up. There is no difference in the hate of race or sexuality. Period.

  549. Hes entitle to believe whatever he wants, just as much as A&E is entitle to fire him. And to all the people saying “free speech.” What if he said instead that he doesn’t believe that women should be able to work jobs where they boss men around or that they shouldn’t talk in church. Would that still be acceptable if he posted that in the magazine interview? The truth is, what he says to the media not only effects him, but it also effects the brand hes working for.
