The New York Daily News is reporting that A&E “Duck Dynasty” star Jase Robertson was kicked out of a New York City hotel when staff mistook him for a vagrant.
The heavily-bearded Robertson, who works for the popular Louisiana-based “Duck Commander” hunting equipment store, joked that he was a victim of “facial profiling.”
Daily News says:
The famed family from the A&E hit show stopped by “Live! With Kelly and Michael” Wednesday morning to dish details on their reality series and their time spent in New York City this week while promoting its fourth season.
Robertson continued to explain that the employees simply had no idea who he was.
“I asked where the bathroom was and he said, ‘Right this way, sir.’ He was very nice, he walked me outside, pointed down the road and said, ‘Good luck.'”
Robertson took the situation with stride and continued to stay at the hotel despite the misunderstanding.
The fourth season premiere of “Duck Dynasty,” the show that focuses on the Robertson’s who invented and now market the definitive duck call, drew 11.8 million viewers making it the most-watched nonfiction show in the history of cable television.
