EXCLUSIVE - 'Hung out to dry': Duck Dynasty star and family hit out at A&E for letting his controversial interview go public and for suspending him for homophobic comments

    Phil Roberston and his family believe that A & E are discriminating against them for their deeply seated 'Christian beliefs'
    ‘You have to ask yourself, why this interview happened and why it ever became public,' said a source close to the family
    Despite the star's suspension, 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

Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson and his family believe they have been ‘hung out to dry’ by TV network A&E after he was suspended for homophobic comments made in a magazine interview, MailOnline can reveal.

Sources within the close-knit Louisiana clan say they are convinced A&E are manipulating the controversial situation to bring them – and particularly Robertson – back into line after Television executives grew tired of the family pushing their deeply-held, Christian beliefs.

They also think the network could have done something to stop the controversial GQ article being made public, because an A&E representative was present during the interview with patriarch, Roberston, 67.

Oh come on!!  So Robertson is unable to say "no" to GQ?  He's unable to contain his comments? 

And how is A&E supposed to stop the interview from becoming public?  It's a friggin' MAGAZINE that is going to PUBLISH the interview!!!

Robertson is getting railroaded, for sure, but let's not make him out to be some helpless victim.
