Phil Robertson is not particularly pleased at some of the editing that take place on A&E's Duck Dynasty.
As the patriarch of the Robertson clan, the reality TV star appears to want his family portrayed as they are. According to the Duck Commander, the program's editors have been misconstruing some of the dialogue by bleeping words that are not offensive.
"They inserted fake bleeps ... like somebody had used profanity, but no one had used profanity," Robertson said in a recent interview with Sports Spectrum. "I ask those guys that produce the show ... 'What's the point of the fake bleeps?'"
When the Duck Dynasty footage is sent out for editing, Robertson believes that someone involved in the process either thinks that the men are swearing or wants to make it more interesting by making it appear as if there is cursing taking place.
"They're the ones that said, 'You know, I think it'd be cool here to maybe make it look like they're cursing," Robertson told Sports Spectrum. "Of course these people probably thought that there was some profanity going on which there was zero."
The Duck Commander says if the viewers want cursing, they can find it on other stations and various programs with no problem.
"If we're not using profanity, why make it look like we're using profanity?" Robertson wondered. "What is the point? Why don't you just run it and say what we say?"
While this interview took place during the spring, the video has recently made a resurgence now that the fourth season is well underway. Even though the issue recently made its way onto late night television with Jimmy Kimmel Live, E! reports that A&E has yet to issue a statement regarding the comment.
Duck Dynasty airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on A&E.
