Just last week I was shouting "WHAT THE HELL IS DUCK DYNASTY?" And now it looks like I'll never really know (nor will I want to), because every sensible person in the universe is furious at Duck Dynasty for a lot of reasons.
Following the horrible anti-gay and racist comments made by "Duck Dynasty patriarch" (HOW IS THAT A REAL PHRASE THAT WE ARE JUST CASUALLY THROWING AROUND) Phil Robertson and his subsequent suspension from the show, the Internet is still all aflutter with rage. One cannot throw a stick without hitting some new, not-good Duck Dynasty Development. First: TMZ is claiming that A&E was well aware of Robertson's hateful bigotry — he's been preaching it for years, as evidenced by a 2010 video of him calling gay people "shameful, perverse, heartless, faithless, senseless God haters... destined for the burning pits of hell." So the network's facade of surprise and outrage is completely artificial, it seems. [TMZ]
