PETA: ""Duck Dynasty" Should Be Canceled" (STATEMENT)

PETA believes that "Duck Dynasty" should be canceled following Phil Robertson's anti-gay and racist remarks.

Just in case you have missed it, Robertson, 67, has been suspended from the A&E series after revealing to GQ he believes being gay is a "sin" and compared it to bestiality.

On Thursday, PETA claimed it "wants A&E to do more than suspend one of the characters on "Duck Dynasty" for damning gays."

It continues: "We call on the channel to challenge the entire crew of duck slayers to ignore Sarah Palin's self-serving slap on the back for spewing hate speech and deny that they are as anti-gay as they are anti-animal. All people who consider themselves followers of Christ should follow all His teachings - and that includes showing mercy, compassion, and kindness to all of God's creation, human and nonhuman alike. What's "sinful" is hating people and animals. PETA asks everyone who consider themselves to be Christian to reject hate speech and call for this show's cancellation." 

The show, however, has its supporters as well.

A number of conservative pundits have defended Robertson and his comments, while fans have begun a "IStandWithPhil" petition to get him back on the show.
