'Duck Dynasty'

A&E Publicist MIA

When Phil Went Off On Gays!

If you asked yourself "Where was the publicist?" when "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson went off on gays during his big interview with GQ magazine ... TMZ now has the answer ... the publicist was not there!

Sources very familiar with the situation tell us ... a publicist did indeed accompany Robertson to the interview -- per A&E's rigid PR policy -- and the interview took place in several locations.  When the GQ reporter and Phil hopped on ATVs, the publicist didn't come along for the ride.

We're told it was then the reporter apparently saw an opening and Phil made his incendiary anti-gay comments

It's pretty shocking ... because Phil is widely known as a loose cannon ... so it's a little like playing Russian Roulette to let him gallivant off with a reporter.

I think it's pretty messed up because everyone has a freedom of speech and when Phil says what he believes they put him down for it

Phil was honest and even our own President is not.
What a great Country we live in today. When one man is more honest than our leader and our Congress our Country has reached rock bottom. Thank the Gay community for ruining our great Country. They can stick that in their ass if they like it that way.

Robertson Family Bluff!! Since when can you walk away from a contract without paying a lot of Money. That's why Kim Basinger went Bankrupt when she walked away from her contract for the movie Boxing Helena.

See u r still milking this one Harvey. I'm glad he spoke his mind. This may come as a shock to your feeble little mind but most people agree with him. Hate to tell ups this but we are all entitled to our opinions. I know that comes as a shock to u lib turds

It seems like that the Bible is only used now to attack gays as if homosexuality is the only thing that the Bible forbids. How about stoning a woman who have premarital sex till death, or killing the child who curses his parents, ...and on and on. It is the agenda not the Bible.

Shame on everyone hear saying spiteful comments towards gays. You are probably the bullies from high school, the ones who commit hate crimes, the ones who teach your children intolerance. Whether you agree or not with his comments why should you be causing more dra and hate in this world?! Grow up.

I am so sick of people accusing anyone who has a different opinion or belief of being a hater. We all have a right to our own opinions and a right to discuss them.
