If you've checked your Facebook or email this week, you might have been treated to a surprising story of how "Ducky Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson has been fighting the network that airs his show regarding frequent uses of prayer and guns. Mainly, the story says that Phil has taken a stand against A&E in order to keep the two topics in the show. But while the story may endear fans to Phil and the clan even more, information uncovered says the entire thing just isn't true.
There's nothing to it, family member and Phil's oldest (and non-bearded ) son Alan Robertson tells TheBlaze. "The rumor that A&E told the Robertsons to tone down guns and prayer is not true," Alan said in an email, adding the description of "false" to the chatter. "We continue to partner with A&E to make a great tv show that reflects our family's values."
