While the hashtag #StandWithPhil became a thing, the “Duck Dynasty” stars also found support in the form of an offer from Glenn Beck to bring their show to his own network, the Blaze.
“We would be proud to have you,” Beck said yesterday on his online TV network.
Several online petitions have been started to show support for the “Duck Dynasty” star, including one on Change.org that has amassed more than 50,000 signatures and a website IStandWithPhil.com, which had gathered more than 22,000 signatures.
The new season of “Duck Dynasty,” the top-rated nonfiction show in cable history, will premiere Jan. 15. Robertson will appear in a few of the new episodes since they were already finished at the time of his suspension.
