Phil Robertson's family is in solidarity ... they're not doing "Duck Dynasty" without him, and now A&E has a huge problem. It's the biggest cable reality show ever ... and if the Robertsons walk, they could lose several hundreds of THOUSAND dollars!

Plus, Kim Kardashian was near tears because she said people were focusing on her body too much -- so why in the world is she parading around in a bikini for setup photos???

And, French Montana is the latest celebrity to get a monkey as a pet -- and pisses off a lot of people in the process.

Why is Duck Dynasty the most popular reality show ever? I don't get it. Are there that many rednecks in this country? I guess so. I would rather watch old episodes of The Osbournea personally

OH NO! One less "reality" show on TV!! Whatever shall we do?

While I dont agree with Mr Robertsons viewpoint he HAS the right to express his beliefs. Apparently anything thats not PC is now viewed as "hate speech"?

Gimme a ****ing break.

Just "several hundreds of THOUSAND dollars?"....that's it? For the highest rated reality tv show ever, one would think it would be millions.

They're already millionaires before the show. They have a profitable duck call business. They don't need the money.

I haven't seen the show at all, but no matter what the ratings and profits are there's a line that's drawn when someone who's under a private contract can say. This is neither an issue of religious beliefs, as Rush Limbaugh has said, nor is it an issue of Freedom of Speech as Sarah Palin stupidly said, neither is it as easy as changing the channel as Bobby Jindal suggested if someone didn't like this.
There's no room for Hate Speech in a modern and ever evolving society, no matter what and copping out with other arguments besides that of a civil agreement between A&E and these people, is just plain political spin to come across a certain group of constituents.
The next step is to boycott the sponsoring brands who are backing them, unless they wish to become the newest Chick-Fil-A in corporations which stand by homophobic spokespeople.
