“Duck Dynasty” defenders and talk show host Sean Hannity got personal in their defense of Phil Robertson Thursday as Hannity gave out the phone numbers of A&E executives on the air and supporters shared them across Twitter.
“Dear @AETV, congratulations, you just committed suicide,” one person tweeted.
Another, going by the name “Zimmerman” after George Zimmerman, the gunman acquitted in Trayvon Martin’s death, tweeted that people should “DEMAND” an apology, then gave the network’s address and phone number. Zimmerman’s Twitter image is a gun pointed at the viewer. (See image, with address and phone number omitted.)
“Tell Ms. Nancy Dubuc at A&E to stop Christian bashing and leave Duck Dynasty alone!!!” said @DennisCarothers, referring to the network’s president and CEO.
Robertson’s supporters began naming names of the executives they considered responsible for Robertson’s suspension after he was given a temporary leave from the show after making anti-gay comments in an interview with GQ.
One bit of good news for Dubuc: She has an unusual last name. That meant some of the angry messages sent her way were misspelled.
