Duck Dynasty is down a star.
A&E, which airs the reality show that follows the duck-hunting and duck call-creating Robertson family, has suspended patriarch Phil Robertson indefinitely from filming following his anti-gay comments printed in GQ.
"We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson's comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty," says a statement from the network that was sent to PEOPLE. "His personal views in no way reflect those of A&E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely."

Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson has some advice for the nation: Repent.
"The Robertson family really believes strongly that if the human race loved each other and they loved God, we would just be better off," the reality star tells the January issue of GQ (on newsstands Dec. 24). "We ought to just be repentant, turn to God and let's get on with it, and everything will turn around."
He continues, "Everything is blurred on what's right and what's wrong ... Sin becomes fine."
