Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson just got benched!
A&E suspended its reality star because of the horribly homophobic remarks he made in a GQ interview that came to light today, one which saw him call homosexuality a sin and also a gateway to sex with animals!!!
As we reported earlier, the LGBT community was absolutely outraged by the TV star's small-minded remarks. It sounds like his show's network was pretty unhappy, too.
A&E released this statement:
"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."
We were ALL extremely disappointed by his comments. We can't understand why anyone say something so small-minded and insensitive!

Do U think his punishment is fitting?
