‘Duck Dynasty’: Phil Robertson to return to show
“Duck Dynasty” and its suspended patriarch Phil Robertson are flying again.
A&E has lifted its suspension of Robertson, which was imposed following his inflammatory remarks on gays and blacks in an interview for GQ magazine.
In a statement from the network, executives said that while “Phil’s comments ... reflect his personal views based on his own beliefs, and his own personal journey, he and his family regret the coarse language he used and the misinterpetation of his core beliefs based only on the article.”
“After discussions with the Robertson family, as well as consulting with numerous advocacy groups, A&E has decided to resume filming ‘Duck Dynasty’ later this spring with the entire Robertson family.”
