With hundreds of thousands of supportive petition signatures, emails, social media site complaints and millions of viewers supporting Phil Robertson, A&E seemingly caved in to the 1st Amendment and biblical values by ending the Duck Commander’s suspension, according to Fox News.
The A&E Network was raking in hundreds of millions of dollars and Wal-Mart which had been distributing Duck Dynasty products was making over $200 million from the show. So it seemed only a matter of time before the large green economic line gave into the hard biblical and constitutional line that had been drawn in the Louisiana red dirt by Phil Robertson.
The A&E Network released a statement affirming that it “would resume filming “Duck Dynasty” with Phil Robertson and the rest of his family next spring,” according to Fox News.
Robertson had been suspended from his number one rated cable show which drew in 12 million plus viewers. The network suspended Robertson due to alleged “anti-gay and racists” comments that were taken from his GQ magazine interview. The Rainbow PUSH Coalition organization as well as the LGBT organization GLAAD were offended and demanded Phil Robertson be relieved of his Duck Whistle and more.
