Henry Rollins Gives A&E Some ‘Duck Dynasty’ Programming Advice
We’ve been fans of Henry Rollins since he was frontman for legendary punk rock band Black Flag, way before his stints as actor, author, essayist and damn impressive interviewer. It comes as no surprise that the co-writer of the classic punk anthem “TV Party” has a few politically incorrect ideas that could help cable outlet A+E out of the public relations mess caused by ‘Duck Dynasty’ patriarch Phil Robertson’s big mouth.
Calling the reality series “contrived” and “ridiculous,” the former Black Flag frontman-turned-television host and actor suggests that A&E capitalize on the popularity of “Duck Dynasty” with “a vast array of merchandise” that would secure the show’s “crossover potential” in a new blog for L.A. Weekly.
“One of you supremely talented graphic artists should start a comic book series starring the ‘Duck’ dudes as homosexual bears,” he writes. “At the next major gay pride event, there should be hard-bodied men in camo hot pants, ridiculous beards pasted to their chins, blowing through duck calls. ‘Dick Dynasty’ is a gay porn series just waiting to happen.”
He then adds, “When you see the DD men all decked out in their camo gear, they look pretty bitchin’ and rugged.”
Whether or not Robertson would approve of Rollins’ suggestions remains to be seen, of course.
Henry Rollins’ full, hilarious, and decidedly NSFW editorial is in LA Weekly.
