1227-phil-robertson-a-and-eThe "Duck Dynasty" war with A&E is over -- the network just announced Phil Robertson is no longer suspended ... and filming will resume in a few months.

The network says their strong sense of integrity caused them to react quickly to Phil's GQ interview ... and after consulting with numerous advocacy groups they made a decision to bring him back.

The network adds, "As a global media content company, A+E Networks’ core values are centered around creativity, inclusion and mutual respect. We believe it is a privilege for our brands to be invited into people’s home and we operate with a strong sense of integrity and deep commitment to these principles."


The network says they plan to roll out a new PSA campaign on their network in the wake of what happened ... promoting unity, tolerance and acceptance.

A&E adds, "Duck Dynasty is not a show about one man's views. It resonates with a large audience because it is a show about family… a family that America has come to love."

This racist, bigoted pig is outrageous!!!!! The fact that he used the BIBLE, is unbelievable. God will surely send him straight to hell!!!!! I have many friends who have watched a lot of programming on A&E in the past (never duck dynasty), but neither anyone.I know nor myself will ever watch anything on your network again. He is the most anti religious, ugly, anti equal treatment of human beings that exists and We can't believe you would have anything to do with this no good, cancer spreading, vile, whatever he is. He is definitely a follower of SATAN AND NOT THE LORD!!!!! By the way, all of my friends and I are white!!!!!
