A+E Networks has decided to put Phil Robertson on indefinite filming hiatus from his insanely popular reality show after his lame-duck remarks about LGBT folks hit newsstands and web browsers today.

In a statement released to Variety late Wednesday, A+E Networks (which owns the A&E channel) wrote:

"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.”

Earlier today, A&E gave Robertson a little extra rope to trap himself with when they allowed their 14-million-viewer star to respond to critics, saying: "I myself am a product of the '60s; I centered my life around sex, drugs and rock and roll until I hit rock bottom and accepted Jesus as my Savior. My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together. However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other.”

Although the duck commander has been placed into time out, it is unclear at the moment whether the show itself will come to a halt or if filming will continue with the rest of his family, who earlier admitted they don't stray too far from the flock.
