Was Phil Robertson wrongfully suspended?
I have been reading comment via facebook and twitter stating the fact that the patriarch of the Robertson family and the Duck Commander brand Phil Robertson was in violation of his contact with A&E. In a interview with the magazine “GQ” Robertson was asked about his faith and his views on Homosexuality. Saying that his faith teaches him that homosexuality is a sin. Leftist groups were salivating at that statement.
Now let us address the concerns of “he violated his contract with A&E.” I have never seen the contract nor read any legitimate article citing Robertson’s contract. If anyone of you in facebook land can produce a copy of his contract, please shoot me a message with it. I would love to see it. Until then, please sit down and shut up. If you claim, it is a violation of his contract then please produce something to back up your claim.
Secondly, let us address “His comments were too graphic.” All he did was state parts of the male and female body. I saw a lot worse when Miley Cyrus was at the MTV Award show a few months ago. Watching her “twerking” on a married man with children but was something everyone laughed at? Until we censor Hip Hop, music (Which says far worse) we should not worry about what Phil said.
All right now to get to A&E, your move was stupid. The hit “Duck Dynasty” does not cater to the homosexual market place. If you were to poll viewers of “Duck Dynasty” you would see a majority stands behind and believes what Phil said. In addition, “Duck Dynasty” is built on Christian principals. “Duck Dynasty” is the number one rated show on your network (Which in April beat “American Idol”). The money you have raked in on the backs of the Robertson family is astounding. You cannot go anywhere without seeing their face, you get money from that. Therefore, this was a very stupid business move on your part.
