Here’s what the gay rights organization had to say via a statement:
“Phil Robertson should look African American and gay people in the eyes and hear about the hurtful impact of praising Jim Crow laws and comparing gay people to terrorists,” the organization said in a statement. “If dialogue with Phil is not part of next steps then A+E has chosen profits over African American and gay people – especially its employees and viewers.”
As we reported earlier, A&E, under pressure from the public, among other constituencies, lifted the suspension they placed on Robertson in the wake of his controversial comments about gays and blacks in GQ magazine.
Filming will now resume in the spring with the entire Robertson family
A&E announced that they were lifting the suspension, allowing the show to resume filming in the spring with the entire Robertson family.
