"Robertson is a character in a reality show. He’s not a spokesman for A&E any more than some soul-sucking social x-ray from the Real Housewives
series is a spokeswoman for Bravo. Is he being fired for being out of character? Nah. He’s being fired for staying in character – a character A&E have nurtured and promoted and benefited from. Turning around and demanding a Duck Dynasty
star suddenly become the equivalent of a Rachel Maddow guest is preposterous and unfair.What Phil Robertson has given A&E is a dose of redneck reality. Why on earth would they fire him for giving some more?" - Andrew Sullivan
, writing for his blog.
