Everyone has watched or heard of A&E’s “Duck Dynasty” show featuring hillbillies with long gray beards and camo. Well, the most well known star Phil Roberston is in deep water after making comments about homosexuals in an interview with GQ. His comments?
In an interview with GQ, Robertson called gay people “homosexual offenders” and seemed to equate gay sex with bestiality. He also said that he “never” saw blacks mistreated in the pre-civil rights era. “No one was singing the blues,” he said.
The comments were quickly condemned by GLAAD and the NAACP. On Wednesday, A&E said it was “extremely disappointed” by Robertson’s remarks and put him on an indefinite hiatus from the show
What do you think? Did Phil cross the line with his comments? This is the reason why his story went viral, because there are so many opinions on the subject. Some are saying, good for him for speaking his beliefs, then others say he is disgusting and has no right spewing out his opinions on homosexuality.
