Bristol Palin: Leave Phil Robertson Alone! Shame on A&E!

by at . Comments

Bristol Palin is following in her famous mother's footsteps, voicing support for Phil Robertson and publicly standing by the embattled Duck Dynasty patriarch.

In a new blog post, the 23-year-old laments how the "hypocritical" LGBT community expects "every single flippen person to agree with their life style."

"This flies in the face of what makes America great ... people can have their own beliefs and own opinions and their own ways of life," adds Palin.

Last week, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin slammed A&E for its suspension of Phil Robertson following his anti-gay comments in GQ magazine.

Now her daughter is following suit with a photo (above) captioned, "I support Phil Robertson and his right to express his faith and beliefs. Shame on A&E."

In her post, entitled "Leave Phil Robertson Alone!", Bristol Palin says "everyone needs to treat others like God would, with love. It goes both ways."

The one-time Dancing with the Stars finalist concluded that, "If I were Duck Dynasty, I would take my show to another channel. So much disrespect."

The Robertson clan may end up doing just that.

Following the suspension, the Duck Dynasty cast issued a statement criticizing the statement and saying that they can't imagine going on without Phil.

This past weekend, Phil Robertson reportedly insisted he's a lover, not a hater ... but also doubled down on his remarks and rationale for them.

The controversy started after the Duck Commander founder, 67, was asked about his definition of sinful behavior in an interview for January's GQ.

"Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there," he said. "Sin becomes fine. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman, that woman, that woman and those men."

"Don't be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers ... "

"They won't inherit the kingdom of God. Don't deceive yourself. It's not right."

On Wednesday, the network put Robertson on an indefinite hiatus, saying it was disappointed about his remarks and sparking a national controversy.
