A&E Networks has suspended indefinitely "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson from its popular reality show after the conservative Christian shared his belief that homosexuality is a sin in the January issue of GQ magazine. However, Robertson's Christian fans, expressing their outrage on social media, have vowed to boycott the network.
A&E said in a statement Wednesday evening that it was disappointed to read Robertson's remarks and the "Duck Dynasty" patriarch's beliefs were personal and not a reflection of the network's views.
"His personal views in no way reflect those of A&E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely," reads the statement.
