Just when Phil Robertson thought things were getting better, after being reinstated on “Duck Dynasty” by A&E, things may take another tumble. A video has surfaced online of Robertson preaching to a crowd in 2009 with a pretty creepy message.
When discussing men looking for wives, Robertson says, “They got to where they [are] getting hard to find, mainly because these boys are waiting till they get to be about 20 years old before they marry them. Look, you wait till they get to be 20 years old, the only picking that’s going to take place is your pocket.” That’s when things get a little strange, as he continues, “You got to marry these girls when they are about 15 or 16. They’ll pick your ducks.” He adds, “You need to check with mom and dad about that, of course.”
Robertson was speaking in Georgia at the time, where the minimum age that one can obtain a marriage license is 16. The reality star has come under fire in recent weeks for anti-gay comments he made in GQ magazine. He was initially suspended from “Duck Dynasty,” but when the Robertson family stood behind him, the network backed down.
