Governor Bobby Jindal Issues Statement On A&E’s Dismissal Of Phil Robertson
Governor Bobby Jindal has issued a statement criticizing A&E for indefinitely suspending Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson for controversial comments he made in a recent interview with GQ.
Jindal's statement is as follows:
Governor Jindal said, “Phil Robertson and his family are great citizens of the State of Louisiana. The politically correct crowd is tolerant of all viewpoints, except those they disagree with. I don’t agree with quite a bit of stuff I read in magazine interviews or see on TV. In fact, come to think of it, I find a good bit of it offensive. But I also acknowledge that this is a free country and everyone is entitled to express their views. In fact, I remember when TV networks believed in the First Amendment. It is a messed up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended.
