Following the controversial statements made by Phil Robertson, the star of the A&E TV Show “Duck Dynasty," news broke that the creator of the hit TV show has a past in the entertainment industry that the Duck Dynasty clan might not approve of.
On Friday, Buzzfeed broke the story that the creator of the "Duck Dynasty" TV show, Scott Gurney, appeared in an independent film and played a gay adult film star. Gurney appeared in the 2001 film titled "The Fluffer," which made it's premier at the Toronto Film Festival that same year. Many might wonder what the opinion will be of Robertson and his family who have made their opinions very clear on homosexuality. In a recent interview with GQ, Robertson gave anti-gay comments, comparing homosexuality to beastiality, using his strong belief in Christianity as his reasoning for thinking so.
"Start with homosexual behavior and just morph from there...Beastiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men."
A&E has currently suspended Robertson, claiming that his views don't reflect those of the network. The political right have come storming back, slamming A&E for denying Robertson his alleged First Amendment rights and building up Robertson as a modern day Rosa Parks. A&E hasn't decided what they will do with the show going forward, but the rest of the family have released a statement saying they won't continue filming without the head of their clan.
The trailer for the film can be seen on You Tube here.
