Duck Dynasty’s Jase Robertson has opened up about his experience in the now infamous GQ interview with Drew Magary. You know, the one that caused a huge stir and controversy across the nation when Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson said that homosexuality is a sin.
The nation heard about Phil Robertson’s answers and the stand for faith that rocked Duck Dynasty to the core and almost lost Phil Robertson (and the rest of the family, since they weren’t going on without him) their highly-rated show on A&E. We also heard weeks (and weeks, and weeks) of backlash from all over the country claiming Phil Robertson was everything from a bigot to a homophobe to a racist and back.
Well, now Jase Robertson of Duck Dynasty is telling the other side of the story about what went on during that immortal interview.
Apparently, the Duck Dynasty cast in its entirety eventually walked out on the interview because “it felt more like an attack because our family has a prayer at the end of the show”, according to Jase. He says he even tried to convince his father “to stop the interview because the questions were hypothetical, argumentative, and controversial.”
Jase said the interview involving the cast of Duck Dynasty didn’t even start out on a good note, as Drew Magary began with unsavory language and moved straight to even more offensive questions.
Duck Dynasty‘s Jase revealed that from the get-go, “He was using four-letter words, a lot of F-bombs, he was making fun of some of the things we hold true. The first statement of the whole process was, he looked at me and said, ‘Do you actually expect people to believe that you waited until you got married before you had sex?’ That was the first statement out of his mouth. Well, I kind of looked around at the publicist and I thought, ‘Is this the interview?’ I mean, because this was just the way it came across.”
However, the family of Duck Dynasty is a forgiving bunch, and they don’t want to believe that Magary intentionally set them up to be torn down, but…it kinda seems that way.
“…I think it was just a plan to get some, some of that [which] caused us some trouble. But, you know, we don’t hold anything against him, so. Or even by trying that. My dad thought he wanted to take a stand in his house, and I don’t blame him.”
Way to take the high road Mr. Robertson.
