The local sheriff in a Georgia county where A&E has filmed several of its programs has publicly announced the network will no longer receive the assistance of his Sheriff’s Department due to A&E’s “unreasonable” punishment of ”Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson.
Douglas County Sheriff Phil Miller posted the following statement on his personal Facebook page Friday announcing his own “business decision, saying, “It is time for someone other than Hollywood and the news media to stand up for what is right!”
Miller said while it was A&E’s “prerogative” to indefinitely suspend Robertson over his comments on homosexuality, his decision to no longer give the sheriff department’s assistance to the network was “what he thought was right to show how he feels,” the Douglas County Sentinel reported.
