    Nice non-response.

    As was discussed in the OP:
    A&E knew of Robertson's controversial views - expounded in videotaped sermons and elsewhere - before the show premiered in spring 2012, and warned him not to overshare on hot-button topics such as gay rights and race relations, according to a producer familiar with the situation. Phil and other family members also probably signed contracts containing "morals clauses" in which they promised to, among other things, avoid anything that would embarrass or bring shame to A&E or the brand. Such clauses are standard in the entertainment and sports industries.
    A standard morals clause would cover this kind of thing and if they signed it, and I cannot imagine A & E would have left it out, then it is their responsibility to follow the rules of that contract, a legally binding document. Handlers, do not sign the contract, the talent does and they need to temper their comments so as to not damage their employers.

    The bottom line is that these types of clauses are common and if one were not in place, A & E would not have taken action against Phil.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Just as Phil's has.
    Willie was a yuppy before they knew what a yuppy was. My how he has changed.
    And Phil was successful prior to this show. Which is talent.
    Since you're all about Phil, when did he stop the behavior he now criticizes ?

    OMG! Willie was a yuppy before they knew what a yuppy was. My how he has changed.
    D'oh!

    OMG, EX...what year were you born in? You are aware that prior to the late 60s...that Willie's look didn't exist. A lot of people in the music business....along with the rest of the world had long hair and beards when Willie grew his hair long...and his beard.

    Ex...I love the way you say, "Duh!"...

    I do fund raising work and my name is on materials asking for support. As such, were I to speak out on political issues in my community, I could easily offend those who don't agree who could then rescind their support. So I keep shut. Is my freedom of speech being harmed? I guess that is up for debate, but I can live with it.
    How did Robertson harm A&E?

    For those who haven't seen the REAL DUCK DYNASTY YUPPIE FAMILY PLAYING LIKE SWAMP HICKS...see my post #909!
    What makes those pictures representative of the real them?

    What do you think is more likely?

    Growing up in Louisiana and becoming a yuppie, or a redneck?

    All these guys went to college and I bet they did not have beards in college and they probably did not have beards when they met their wives and started their families. When they start to settle into their lives they get more comfortable and grow the beards.

    Why do you have a problem with that and why does it make one bit if difference as to who they are?

    His being suspended has harmed A&E. Does that count?
