WOW! Is all I can say. Phil Robertson, the man that sits at the end of the table after every taping of the ‘Duck Dynasty’ show has been suspended indefinitely from the popular TV series.

Robertson was interviewed in the latest issue of GQ Magazine where he made controversial racist and gay comments. These comments were rough enough to cause the television network A&E, which airs the show, suspend the star for good.

The cable network issued a statement to EW on Wednesday saying:

We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series ‘Duck Dynasty.’ 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.

The other family members of the popular TV show have yet to make comments. As for the show….. It will still go on!
