So the Duck Dynasty Phil Robertson story got more interesting when a 2009 video surfaced last week of Phil speaking at a Georgia Sportsmen Ministry event where he tells the audience that women should be married off young.
So at what age should your woman be when you marry her, Phil?
“You got to marry these girls when they are 15 or 16. They’ll pick your ducks,” says Robertson.
What Phil is referring to is that younger women are more apt to pick feathers off of your ducks (nothing sexual–thank goodness!).
But really, Phil? 15 or 16? You got to be kidding, right?
“Look, you wait until they get to be 20-years-old, the only picking that’s going to take place is your pocket,” he tells the audience, who can be heard laughing during his speech.
“You need to check with mom and dad about that of course,” he adds.
Hmm… With this new video its so easy to speculate and attack Phil based on his past remarks about homosexuality and African Americans which led to A&E temporarily suspending him from filming the hit TV show. In my opinion though, it sounds to me like he is joking about marrying girls off young. Although, I think it’s a horrible joke and it leaves a bad taste in my mouth, I don’t think he really meant it. At least I hope not.
What do you think?
On Friday, A&E reinstated Robertson after a nine-day suspension that came after GQ published controversial comments he made about homosexuals, African-Americans and other groups.
A&E has not responded yet to the video.
