Louisiana governor throws his opinion in on 'Duck Dynasty'

CREATED Dec. 19, 2013

The latest twist in the controversy of a "Duck Dynasty" star's anti-gay comments now involves a politician.

Both support and out lash against Phil Robertson took over social media over comments he made during a magazine interview.

Robertson told GQ that there was a problem with sin in America and, when he was asked what he though was sinful, he replied: "Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men."

Shortly after he was suspended by A&E, the network that "Duck Dynasty" airs on.

Now the governor of Louisiana has issued a statement. From his official website, Gov. Bobby Jindal says:

"Phil Robertson and his family are great citizens of the State of Louisiana. The politically correct crowd is tolerant of all viewpoints, except those they disagree with. I don’t agree with quite a bit of stuff I read in magazine interviews or see on TV. In fact, come to think of it, I find a good bit of it offensive. But I also acknowledge that this is a free country and everyone is entitled to express their views. In fact, I remember when TV networks believed in the First Amendment. It is a messed up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended."
