As the future of their show lies in doubt, the Duck Dynasty clan are still making millions thanks to their megabucks Walmart merchandising deal, MailOnline can today reveal.

The Robertson family has a merchandise empire that is estimated by Forbes to be worth about $400million - and their deal with Walmart makes up around half of this.

And today, as Walmart refused to comment on the future of their relationship with the TV family, just one glimpse at the chainstore's website shows fans are flocking to buy Duck Dynasty merchandise amid the furor over patriach Phil Robertson's homophobic comments.

Meanwhile, MailOnline can reveal a publicist from A&E DID accompany Phil to his interview with GQ magazine -but was NOT there when he made his incendiary comments.

One of their advertisers was on Fox a few minutes ago and said he goes where the DD show goes........

I saw it first hand at Sams today. People were snatching up DD stuff like crazy. Even the Duck Commander wine (I didn't know there was such a thing until today). One big display of t-shirts and other stuff was picked clean except one or two things and I'm sure by the time I a writing this, it would be gone.

Local sheriff in Georgia has announced he won’t help A&E with its Georgia based shows anymore.

Technically A&E does but they also have the right to suffer when they miscalculate the impact because they used pajama boys' reaction to predict the bottom (no pun intended... oh hell, yea a pun was intended) line.

I like what Tucker Carlson said a couple of minutes ago (he's filling in for Hannity)........ do we really want to live in a neutered society?
