Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson has been suspended indefinitely by A&E’s honchos for his graphic anti-gay comments in an interview with “GQ Magazine.” A&E Television reps said his remarks are his “owns beliefs and are in no way reflect those of the network which has been a strong supporter of the LGBT community.” A&E also put it out there that Robertson’s comments do not reflect the popular television show “Duck Dynasty.” Robertson also said that America needs a moral “wakeup call” adding that the country was founded on Christian values. Robertson said “We are bible thumpers that just happened to ended up on television.” A&E also provided a clarification to the Huffington Post from Robeertson that read in part “I 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.”
