Just when things looked like things were turning around for Phil Robertson more drama has erupted. The Duck Dynasty star has been called a pedophile. It seems that Phil was caught on tape saying men should marry 15 and 16 year-old girls. It all went down during a speech Phil gave in 2009 at the Sportsmen’s Ministry in Georgia.
He said, “Look, you wait ‘til they get to be twenty years-old and the only picking that’s going to take place is your pocket. You got to marry these girls when they’re about fifteen or sixteen and they’ll pick your ducks.”
This newest scandal comes right after A&E lifted Phil’s suspension for his remarks about homosexuality sharing similarities with bestiality. A&E claims they lifted the suspension because, “Duck Dynasty is not a show about one man’s views. It resonates with a large audience because it is a show about family… a family that America has come to love.” Which translates to, it was all about the $$$$.
The organization that is calling Phil a pedophile is the American’s Against The Tea Party. Check out the video below to see how it all went down!
What do you think Hiccups, are Phil’s comments appropriate. Would you want Phil to marry your 15 year old? I wouldn’t!
