Duck Dynasty will have to roll on without Phil Robertson. The founder of the Duck Commander Co. was suspended Wednesday for anti-gay comments he made in an interview with GQ. In the interview, which was released Wednesday, he likened homosexuality with bestiality as a form of deviant behavior.
A&E Networks, which runs the show, said in a statement. "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."
No word if Phil's comment will affect any of the Duck Dynasty gang's licensing deals, but those hoping for a Duck Dynasty Chia Pet can rest easy. Only Willie's and Uncle Si's likenesses are featured in Chia Pet's collection of planters with growing beards.
