ROBERTSON FAMILY kingpin denounces own show as “FAKE!”
Phil Robertson the DUCK DYNASTY family patriarch how wily TV editors in L.A. “with no moral compass” distort his family’s reality in a recent video interview for The Christian Post.
“They inserted fake beeps like somebody had used profanity, but no one had used profanity,” he explained. “…So I asked those guys who produce the show, I said, ‘Lemme ask you something. What’s the point of the fake bleeps?’”
Robertson claims the camera crew blamed the change on “15 or 20 editors” in L.A. “They’re the ones arranging the scenes,” Robertson says. “Well, they’re the ones that said, ‘You know, I think it’d be cool here to maybe make it look like they’re cursing.’”
“Of course these people thought there was some profanity going on,” the devout Christian said. “There was ZERO.
“If you want that, you can get all of that you want,” he complained.
“Just turn the station. There’s plenty of that! And if we’re not using profanity, why make it look like we’re using profanity? What is the point? Why don’t you just run it and say what we say?”
Eventually, he says, producers finally listened to him “and they quit doing that.”
But soon there was another sticking point in what Robertson calls the “spiritual warfare” between the family and their editors.
“The other thing was, when we prayed we said ‘In Jesus’ name, Amen,’” Robertson reveals. “…And they would just have me say ‘Thank you Lord for the food. Thank you for loving us. Amen.’ So I said, ‘Why would you cut out ‘In Jesus’ name’?'”
“They said, ‘Well, those editors are probably doing that,’” Robertson explains. “And they just think that, you know, they don’t want to maybe offend some of the Muslims or something.”
