      Phil Robertson suspended from "Duck Dynasty" after anti-gay comments

      The A&E channel says "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson is off the show indefinitely after condemning gays as sinners in a magazine interview.


      In a statement Wednesday, A&E said it was extremely disappointed to read Robertson's comments in GQ magazine.


      His beliefs are personal and don't reflect the views of A&E or the show itself, the channel said.


      Robertson has been placed on an indefinite hiatus from filming the hit reality show, which follows a colorful Louisiana family that manufactures ducks calls. "Duck Dynasty" has set cable ratings records for a non-fiction series.


      In the interview in the January issue of GQ, Robertson put gays into the company of others who are sinners, including adulterers and swindlers.
