“Duck Dynasty” Saga: A&E Facing More Phil Robertson Controversy

Source: Shoshana Davis / CBS News

There’s a new controversy surrounding “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson as a video made four years ago surfaced showing the show’s patriarch talking about the merits of marrying teenage girls.

In the video, Robertson says “Look, you wait till they get to be 20 years old – the only picking that’s gonna take place is your pocket. You gotta marry these girls when they’re about 15 or 16.”

This comes on the heels of A&E Network’s decision to drop plans to suspend Robertson for his comments about gays and African-Americans. The network’s handling of the situation has garnered much criticism.

Abby Klaassen, editor of Advertising Age, told the “CBS This Morning” co-hosts that A&E had “no choice” but to bring back the show and Robertson.

    Wow. And here I thought he couldn’t get any more ignorant than he was! Silly me.

    I DON’T ACTUALLY KNOW ENOUGH ABOUT THE MATTER TO MAKE AN INFORMED COMMENT? WHILE THIS ARTICLE ITSELF CAN BE DEEMED VERY INCENDIARY AT IT’S WORSE, I MUST WONDER IF THE SPARSENESS OF THE ABOVE ARTICLE A RUSE TO KEEP THE “ROBERTSON” CONTROVERSY A BREWING! BACK IN THE DAY NOT ONLY WAS IT POPULAR BUT IT WAS ALSO LEGAL FOR PEOPLE AS YOUNG AS 15 TO MARRY EACH OTHER, WITH PARENTS PERMISSION! THIS ARTICLE CAN AND MAY BE INTERPRETED IN MANY WAYS AND I CHOOSE, AT LEAST UNTIL I HEAR OTHERWISE TO GIVE PHIL ROBERTSON
    THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT! I BELIEVE PERHAPS THE COMMENT IS TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT AND THAT HE MEANT “THE YOUNGER YOU FIND AND MARRY THE PERSON OF YOUR DREAMS THE BETTER OFF YOU’LL BE!”
