How do you say racist and homophobic things in a nice way?
A&E should make whatever decision they want to make and they don't need anyone telling them how to make it. Buy a network and then you can do whatever you want. If they don't like what he's saying - and I find it really hard to believe they agree with him in any way - they can fire him whenever they want and especially if they believe they'll lose money because of him.
I've never seen 2 seconds of that show because I have no interest in these people. I'm not the least bit surprised that one of them (and probably most of them, let's be honest) turned out to be a racist homophobe.
Like I've sad several times, he has a right to say whatever he wants, but free speech isn't free. He hasn't been arrested or charged with a crime. He got canned from his stupid reality show by a company that is well within their rights to do get rid of him. There are consequences to behavior or speech. He just discovered what those are.
Also, re: the comment about his interview with GQ not being on A&E....he was interviewed by GQ because he's on a show aired on A&E. They didn't interview him for any other reason. It's not like GQ's readers are all into duck calls or whatever it is he does. That's means he was representing the network, whether he likes it or not.
