Phil Robertson's Brother Si Claims God is Directing 'Duck Dynasty'
"Uncle" Si Robertson, who is Phil Robertson's brother and one of the co-stars of the TV show "Duck Dynasty," recently claimed that God was directing the A&E reality series.
“We was doing a film one day about hunting for the beaver dam and I laughed at the director, and said, ‘You actually think you’re directing this thing? The Lord God Mighty is directing Duck Dynasty,'” Si told Fox News.
Season six of "Duck Dynasty" is set to premiere tonight and will include Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal (R) giving the Robertson family the first-ever Governor's Award for Entrepreneurial Excellence for their Duck Commander company, noted The Los Angeles Times.
Gov. Jindal defended Phil Robertson last year when the controversial patriarch compared homosexuality to bestiality, and claimed that black people were "happy" under racist Jim Crowe laws.
"Phil Robertson and his family are great citizens of the state of Louisiana," said Gov. Jindal at the time. "The politically correct crowd is tolerant of all viewpoints, except those they disagree with."
According to Variety, the ratings for "Duck Dynasty" have dropped from 9.63 million viewers from its third season to 6 million viewers during its fifth season.
