One Direction’s Liam Payne tweeted that he has huge respect for the family values of the gay hating Duck Dynasty clan.
‘Huge love to you,’ Payne tweeted to Willie Robertson, according to Gawker. ‘Huge respect for your business properties and the family values you still all behold. Big fan.’
Willie is the son of anti-gay mega monster Phil Robertson, who had these
lovely things to say about the gays.
In a GQ interview he said that gays and lesbians are ‘insolent, arrogant, God-haters. They are heartless, they are faithless, they are senseless, they are ruthless.’
It did not take long for Payne to feel the backlash and try to explain his support:
‘Being a fan of someone’s show, and the way they still hold a family together, doesn’t mean I am OK with all they say.’
Payne then slammed the media trying to make something out of it.
‘Look at this shit,’ the 20-year-old tweeted. ‘I never said any of that. Write about something real for once; there’s plenty of issues in the world.’
‘Pick your balls up off the floor and get on with it; instead of taking advantage of every word said and twisting it for your own gain.’
ok LeeLee, here is the deal. What Phil Robertson said about the gays was beyond disgusting, disturbing AND pure hate. However, his other comments (which you can see him spew on youtube) are even more revolting and quite frankly despicable. Although Willie did not himself make any such derogatory comments, he along with his family released a statement saying that they fully support Phil for standing by his beliefs. Statement below:
We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support. The family has spent much time in prayer since learning of A&E’s decision. We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word. While some of Phil’s unfiltered comments to the reporter were coarse, his beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible. Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Phil would never incite or encourage hate.We are disappointed that Phil has been placed on hiatus for expressing his faith, which is his constitutionally protected right.We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm. We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty. Again, thank you for your continued support of our family.
I would suggest you pick YOUR balls up off the floor and stand up against Homophobia.
