Millions of people tune in each and every week to watch "Duck Dynasty," but fans will soon no longer be able to see the Robertson family patriarch, Phil, on the show because of comments he made about homosexuality last week. A&E networks made a knee-jerk reaction and kicked Phil to the curb and released a statement condemning his comments. Sean was joined by former Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, with reaction to the story. "This is all about freedom, free speech. You know, so many American families have spilled blood and treasure to guarantee Phil Robertson and everybody else's right to voice their personal opinions. And once that freedom is lost, Sean, everything is lost in our country.
Now, A&E -- they were absolute quacks on this one, the marketing department there. Here they had just recently rolled out their new slogan from their marketing department, and it's "Be original." Well, that translates with A&E's marketing department today into "Be stupid."
To get rid of the most popular patriarch on television today -- I tell you, there are other networks that would just nab these guys up in a heartbeat. A&E really screwed up on this one," Palin added.
