OMFG! – HRC Responds To The Duck Dynasty Fiasco: “We think it’s actually a positive outcome.”
When sucking on lemons try to make it seen like its a new way to drink lemonade so people don’t realize just how badly you you fucked-up and keep giving you money.
“It’s not really a reversal,” Fred Sainz, a representative of the Human Rights Campaign, told CNN’s Brianna Keilar in a telephone interview on Friday. “We think it’s actually a positive outcome, and we want to thank A&E for their attentiveness and collaboration over the course of the last few weeks.”
Sainz said that his group was “heartened” by A&E’s plans for the public service announcement campaign. A spokesman for A&E declined to comment on whether Robertson or other “Duck Dynasty” cast members would participate in the campaign, but the channel is said to be hopeful that at least some of the cast members will.
“We’ve received assurances also that the Robertson family is now open to working with African-American and (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) people to address the real harm that such anti-gay and racist comments can cause,” Sainz said on CNN. “That’s been our ‘ask’ since Phil’s comments ran in GQ, and while it’s a positive step, it certainly cannot and should not be the last one.”
And for anyone out there that doesn’t believe that HRC and GLAAD are walking away from this with some monetary donation from A&E/Disney/Hearst you are just as delusional as HRC.
