Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson, in a case of ironic timing, covers The Hollywood Reporter's new issue celebrating Rule Breakers of 2013.
The cover came out just hours after the suspension of Phil Robertson, whose controversial comments in GQ have taken over the Internet this week.
Long before that scandal erupted and left many wondering if A&E will cancel Duck Dynasty, THG picked them as the top Rule Breakers of 2013.
Thus, there is no mention of Phil or the anti-gay comments that got him suspended and put the show's future in limbo, making a new issue feel dated.
Willie Robertson, 41, one of Phil's four sons, says he isn't all that surprised that Duck Dynasty has become the No. 1 unscripted show on television.
"It's a combination of faith, the positive and the family aspect, and it's funny," he says.
