GLAAD Condemns A&E's 'Duck Dynasty' About-Face LA Times

GLAAD isn’t pleased with the decision by A&E to bring back “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson after he made anti-gay remarks to GQ magazine, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker.

"Phil Robertson should look African American and gay people in the eyes and hear about the hurtful impact of praising Jim Crow laws and comparing gay people to terrorists," GLAAD said in a statement. "If dialogue with Phil is not part of next steps then A+E has chosen profits over African American and gay people -- especially its employees and viewers."

GLAAD’s condemnation of Robertson’s comments helped spur his suspension in the first place, the story notes.
