‘Duck’ son Robertson makes nice in interview
NEW YORK – “Duck Dynasty” star Willie Robertson chose not to quack back.
In one of his first chances to comment on the dust-up surrounding his outspoken father and co-star Phil Robertson, the younger Robertson had only kind words for the A&E network and New Year’s wishes for the nation in an appearance Tuesday night on Fox News’s “All-American New Year” special.
“We’re just glad to be back to work, and A&E and us are fine,” Willie Robertson said in a live appearance with wife Korie from Steamboat Springs, Colo.
Fox hosts Bill Hemmer and Elizabeth Hasselbeck gave him several chances to address the firestorm surrounding the suspension of his father over anti-gay comments, but without quite ducking the question, Willie Robertson chose not to take the bait either.
