Duck Dynasty will NOT lack anything if A&E decides to dump it over the anti-gay comments made by Phil Robertson … because other networks are already waiting to pick up the popular show.
According to TMZ, popular Christian-affiliated Hunt Channel and outdoor Pursuit Channel have indicated their interest in picking up the show should A&E drop it.
‘We believe in the 2nd amendment and freedom of speech … A&E needs to put on their big boy pants, and if they don’t like the programming, they need to either let [DD] go or shut up and pay them,’ Merrill Sport, owner of Hunt, told TMZ. ‘A&E is too scripted. [Hunt Channel] would let the personalities flow.’
Pursuit Channel CEO Rusty Faulk, while agreeing with what Sports said, added, ‘We don’t censor our personalities.’
As we previously reported, all the Duck Dynasty sponsors have expressed their support for Phil Robertson, who came under fire from the gay community and was suspended indefinitely by A&E for speaking against homosexuality.
The Robertson family has also made it clear that they won’t continue with the show without their patriarch.
