Sponsor Sends a Message With Statement on Phil Robertson, ‘Duck Dynasty’ Controversy
Dec. 23, 2013 9:00pm Jason Howerton

Realtree, a hunting and outdoors company, released a statement Monday reaffirming its partnership with the Duck Commander team, including Phil Robertson. The company also made it clear that they support “everyone’s right to their opinion” and made no attempt to apologize or clarify for Robertson.

“Realtree’s partnership with Phil Robertson and the Duck Commander team has remained strong for nearly a decade. Our plan is to continue that partnership,” the statement reads. “As a company, our values align well with the Robertson’s. Realtree’s “Family, Friends and the Outdoors” slogan is one we take to heart. We support everyone’s right to their opinion, and we certainly support Phil’s right to his.”

“The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be, Freemen, or Slaves.” G Washington July 2, 1776

A&E management looks like fools and, by extension, Disney management.  The American public is not supporting the network or GLAAD.

And they're consummate hypocrites by continuing to profit from Duck Dynasty episodes while continuing the suspension of the head of the family who makes those profits possible.

Have you checked out what's been going on with Disney stock since the Duck Dynasty flap broke?
