Clay Aiken chimes in on Duck Dynasty and Homophobia – Video
Clay Aiken was on Arsenio this week and he had a few things to say about Phil Robertson’s homophobia and his supporters.
The Duck Dynasty patriarch was suspended by A&E this week after his homophobic comments were published in GQ magazine. His family released a statement afterwards that they won’t do the show without him. Meanwhile, some of his supporters have openly defended his homophobia.
Ironically, the creator of Duck Dynasty Scott Gurney once starred in a gay film called The Fluffer.
Clay Aiken said:
“I think the thing that frustrates me the most is there have been people who have come out today and said, ‘It’s free speech. It’s free speech. I would ask them if the person had said something about interracial marriage, or said, ‘We need to put all children with disabilities in institutions,’ would we still be saying, ‘Well, that’s free speech, we’re OK with that opinion’? And I think the answer is ‘No.'”
“There are certain things in society that we have become universally against: racism, obviously, is wrong. The treatment of people with disabilities is wrong. But homophobia is one thing that we are still a little bit accepting of in certain areas.”
Clay should run for public office one day!
