Jase Robertson, star of the A&E hit show Duck Dynasty, told the audience on “Live! With Kelly and Michael” that on Wednesday he had been escorted out of a New York City hotel because staff members thought he was a homeless man.
It was the very hotel he was staying at.
Keeping his sense of humor intact, Robertson called the incident a simple case of “facial profiling.”
Robertson and the other stars of Duck Dynasty are known for their long scraggly beards.
Via the Daily News:
Robertson told the audience that he had just been kicked out of the hotel he was staying at in the Big Apple because an employee mistook him for a homeless man.
“The first thing that happened to me at the hotel was I got escorted out,” Robertson said of what he called a “facial-profiling deal,” as the Louisiana clan is known for their long beards.
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.'”
“So I circled back around and my wife said, ‘What happened?’ and I just said I just got kicked out.”
Robertson took the situation with stride and continued to stay at the hotel despite the misunderstanding.
The Duck Dynasty family is a hit show with conservatives, showing the group’s strong belief in God, prayer, and the right to bear arms.
