Phil Robertson Coming Back on 'Duck Dynasty,' A&E Now Says

By Newsmax Wires   |   Friday, 27 Dec 2013 05:47 PM

It looks like Phil Robertson will be back on A&E and "Duck Dynasty" soon as the channel reversed its decision to suspend the family patriarch for his controversial comments about gays.

In a statement Friday, A&E said it decided to bring Robertson back after discussions with the Robertson family and "numerous advocacy groups."

The channel had put Robertson on what it called "hiatus" following his comments in a magazine article about how the Bible informs his view of gays.

His comments were slammed by groups including GLAAD, the gay media watch organization. But A&E's decision drew a backlash from those who said they supported Robertson's comments and others who defended him on the basis of freedom of speech.
