Phil Robertson Suspension Is Over

So much for taking a stance.

According to TMZ:

The “Duck Dynasty” war with A&E is over — the network just announced Phil Robertson is no longer suspended … and filming will resume in a few months.

The network says their strong sense of integrity caused them to react quickly to Phil’s GQ interview … and after consulting with numerous advocacy groups they made a decision to bring him back.

The network adds, “As a global media content company, A+E Networks’ core values are centered around creativity, inclusion and mutual respect. We believe it is a privilege for our brands to be invited into people’s home and we operate with a strong sense of integrity and deep commitment to these principles.”

The network says they plan to roll out a new PSA campaign on their network in the wake of what happened … promoting unity, tolerance and acceptance.

A&E adds, “Duck Dynasty is not a show about one man’s views. It resonates with a large audience because it is a show about family… a family that America has come to love.”

So he makes racist and anti-gay comments and gets to keep his job? Clearly he has the complexion for the protection.
