Phil Robertson, the controversial star of "Duck Dynasty" who was recently suspended from the show, showed off the Christmas gift he bought for his wife in a photo that his granddaughter posted to Twitter.
"After 50 years of marriage Papaw Phil finally gave Mamaw Kay a wedding ring for Christmas," granddaughter Sadie Robertson tweeted earlier this week.
Robertson and his family have been the subject of many headlines this month after an interview with GQ was published and quickly went viral. Robertson spoke his mind on several topics, including homosexuality, and his comments were not taken lightly by members and supporters of the LGBT community. Soon after, A&E made the decision to suspend Robertson indefinitely from the show and issued an apology to viewers. It's not clear at this time whether the family will continue on with the show without the patriarch.
“It seems like, to me, a vagina — as a man — would be more desirable than a man’s anus," Robertson said in the interview. "That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical…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.”
Recently, a petition was started to have Robertson reinstated on the show, and a link to the petition was disabled on Twitter after some confusion about whether or not it was spam. However, it's back up under the hashtag #IStandWithPhil. The petition already has over 250,000 signatures.
