A&E: ‘Duck Dynasty’ resuming with entire Robertson family

(CNN) — In an apparent gesture to the advocacy groups, A&E said that it would “also use this moment” to broadcast public service announcements “promoting unity, tolerance and acceptance among all people.”

Little more than a week after it suspended “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson for incendiary remarks about homosexuality, the cable channel A&E said Friday that it would include him in future tapings of the reality television show, effectively lifting the suspension amid a flurry of petitions in support of Robertson.

“After discussions with the Robertson family, as well as consulting with numerous advocacy groups, A&E has decided to resume filming Duck Dynasty later this spring with the entire Robertson family,” the channel said in a statement.

The announcement came nine days after A&E originally suspended Robertson. At the time the channel said it was taking an appropriate and necessary action in response to Robertson’s remarks to a GQ magazine interviewer.

    Does it really matter, reality TV shows are made up nonsense anyway. Created on the cheap to pedal advertising instead of paying big bucks for screen writers, actors, and actresses.
