I have a confession, I watch Duck Dynasty. Being a native Mississippian I have done or know people who have done most of the pranks shown on Duck Dynasty.
The best way to describe the Robertsons is redneck adults with money that act like teenagers. The show has no foul language, no sex and no immorality. It is just a close knit family that knows how to make fun of themselves.
Phil Robertson's beliefs were no secret to A&E and trying to suspend him backfired. The A&E Network found out real quick that they need the Robertsons more than the Robertsons need them.
