With the recent suspension of Phil Robertson over some remarks that he made to GQ magazine (Which you can read here) The Robertson family has dropped a huge bombshell on A&E…
They’ve told A&E “No Phil, No Show!” and they’re supposedly talking to the channel about completely pulling the plug on Duck Dynasty!
The family issued a statement, saying:
“As a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm. We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of ‘Duck Dynasty.”
Oh by the way.. Duck Dynasty is the highest rated cable TV show….ever.
Another source who talked to the family published this:
“We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support. The family has spent much time in prayer since learning of A&E’s decision. We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word. While some of Phil’s unfiltered comments to the reporter were coarse, his beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible. Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Phil would never incite or encourage hate.We are disappointed that Phil has been placed on hiatus for expressing his faith, which is his constitutionally protected right.We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm. We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty. Again, thank you for your continued support of our family.”
