14305A&E has yanked Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson off the hit show following his controversial comments comparing the gay lifestyle to bestiality.

The network released the following statement:

“We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty. His personal views in no way reflect those of A&E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”

So basically, although the time of his return to the show is undetermined, Phil will not appear on the reality series, while the rest of the family will continue on the show, which returns in January.
