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!

Dr Phil Scores First Interview With TE’o Mastermind Ronaiah

I guess the days of Barbara Walters getting all the huge scoop interviews are over! Because it’s just been announced that Dr. Phil will be the first to interview the mastermind behind the Te’o faux girlfriend hoax.

Manti Teo

Dr. Phil just scored HUGE — TMZ has learned, he’s landed the first on-camera interview with the alleged mastermind behind the Manti Te’o girlfriend hoax … Ronaiah Tuiasosopo.

Sources tell us, Phil and Ronaiah sat together for several hours yesterday in L.A., where they discussed Manti’s interview with Katie Couric … after watching the entire interview together.

According to sources, Phil’s interview with Ronaiah is “emotional and deep.” It’s expected to air some time next week.

Ronaiah has yet to address the public about his alleged involvement in the Manti hoax — even though Manti has already said Ronaiah privately confessed to concocting the whole thing.

TMZ broke the story … Ronaiah had intense feelings for Manti — feelings he channeled through the female persona of “Lennay Kekua” … Manti’s fake girlfriend.

Interesting … two female oriented daytime talk shows have snagged the key interviews in a football scandal. tmz
