“Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson has been fired from the reality program following his controversial remarks in GQ magazine regarding homosexuality.
A+E Networks, parent company of A&E, has released the following statement to Variety:
“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. His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community.”
Atrios asked me (on Facebook) if the Freeperati were “freeping out” over this. My reply:
“And I was going to take a break. This always happens.”

The trouble is, the only way a cable-only network can crash and burn is if the reaction is so strong is that folks cancel the whole cable bundle that includes it to drop the channel. Of course, this should accelerate the decision of folks to “cut the cable”, but I’m not sure that can hurt Hearst’s and Disney’s bottom line enough to harm the A&E brand in the estimation of its owners.150 posted on 12/18/2013 7:26:06 PM byThe_Reader_David (And when they behead your own people in the wars which are to come, then you will knowDetails, details.
