phil robertson*We’re sure you’re not surprised to learn that GLAAD is not amused with A&E’s decision to reinstate Phil Robertson to “Duck Dynasty.”

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.”
