Never a channel to shy away from wading into the culture wars, Fox News has announced that it will be joined by "Duck Dynasty" stars Willie and Korie Robertson, son and daughter-in-law of controversial patriarch Phil Robertson. The duo will be a part of the channel's 'All-American New Years Eve' broadcast celebration hosted by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Bill Hemmer.
The AP reports that the couple will appear live from Steamboat Springs, Colorado to discuss Phil Robertson's suspension and the controversy in general surrounding his now infamous anti-gay, racist comments made in a GQ article earlier this month.
Last week, after A&E reinstated Phil on the hit reality show, Willie sent out this tweet of support: "Back to work!! So proud of all the fans of the show and family. Ole Phil may be a little crude but his heart is good. He's the Real Deal!"
