VIDEO: DUCK DYNASTY's Phil Robertson Breaks Silence on Anti-Gay Comments
Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson has finally broken his silence about the recent controversy over anti-gay comments he made in an upcoming issue of GQ magazine. Speaking to Daily Mail Online Sr. Reporter, Will Payne today, the reality star stands behind his controversial remarks. See what he has to say below!
"I will not give or back off from my path because you conquered death, Father, so we are not worried about all the repercussions," Robertson told the Daily Mail.
The controversy erupted ast week, when Robertson was suspended from the reality series indefinitely by the A&E network in the wake of his anti-gay comments in the January issue of GQ. Said Robertson, "Everything is blurred on what's right and what's wrong... Sin becomes fine. Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men."
Since that time, everyone from Charlie Sheen to Sarah Palin to the late night host circuit have weighed in on the controversy. Season five of Duck Dynasty is set to premiere on Wednesday, January 15, 2014, with back-to-back episodes at 10:00 and 10:30PM ET/PT.
