Duck Dynasty sign of support in Highland Illinois

A homeowner in southwestern Illinois has taken to the front lawn of their home to show support for the Duck Dynasty star who came under fire for a controversial magazine interview.

According to a report by KTVI out of St. Louis, a sign situated on a lawn at a Highland, Illinois residence showed support for Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson after he was suspended indefinitely for anti-gay remarks that were published in GQ.

The sign reads, “I support Phil Robertson and his right to express his faith and beliefs.”

A+E Networks released a statement Wednesday, December 17, 2013 saying Robertson had been suspended from the series.

“His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community,” said the statement. “The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”

The show, going into its fifth season is scheduled to premiere January 15. Nearly 12 million viewers tuned-in for the show’s fourth season premiere in August, which was the No. 1 nonfiction series telecast in cable history, according to A&E.

    Freedom of speech protects you from the government. The consequences of what you say does not protect you from your employer.
