Phil Robertson was suspended from his hit show ‘Duck Dynasty’ after he made some appalling homophobic remarks to ‘GQ’, and of course, the Internet has responded in a variety of ways. Many are claiming to ‘stand by Phil’ on Twitter, but others seem to have gotten things a bit confused — they think Phil came out as gay!
Phil Robertson came out as a homophobe in a recent interview with GQ, but some members of the Internet community took the Duck Dynasty star’s comments a bit differently. Check out some of the strangest (and funniest) Phil-related tweets below!
Phil Robertson: Gay?
In case you happened to miss Phil’s remarks, let us enlighten you:
“Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there,” Phil says. “Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men. Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right… It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus. 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.”
So Phil’s views seem to be crystal-clear, but many members of the Twitter-sphere have responded with the opposite perspective — that Phil himself is gay. Of course most of these people are joking, but some seem to be rather confused about the nature of Phil’s suspension:
So what if Phil Robertson is gay? That’s his choice.

So Phil Robertson is gay?? Say what? — Shathan McCoy (@Rad_Daddy_Shad) December 19, 2013
We agree with your sentiments Jacob, but unfortunately “choice” doesn’t seem to be something that Phil is particularly into. (Same goes for black people!)

Traditionally, gay means happy. Traditionally, Phil Robertson is gay, gay, gay. I feel like Andy Atterbury would say something like this.

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Might Phil be gay? Would you attend a Duck Dynasty royal gay wedding?
