A&E has placed Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson on “indefinite hiatus” following anti-gay remarks he made in a recent profile in GQ.
The firing comes on the heels of Robertson’s comparison between homosexuality and bestiality in an interview with GQ.
“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,” A&E said in a statement. “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.”
Do you think this was fair? Did he go too far? Comment below!
