"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."
While we have another article scheduled later this morning about the formalities of A&E's decision, it never ceases to amaze me just how scared these networks have become on this matter.
Does A&E actually THINK a group of redneck hunters support a gay lifestyle? I could see them making the above statement/quote WITHOUT a suspension, no problem. I personally think the show is a bit stupid and dumbs down America, "but hey, Jack", it is what it is.
First it was Dog The Bounty Hunter, then Paula Dean and now Phil Robertson. Just what did they expect when they hired on these people anyway? How's that queer eye for the straight guy working for you now, networks? I can assure you, Dog, Paula and Phil brought in a hell of a lot more viewers than that group of queers trying to tell other men how to shave, dress and cook.
