Facial profiling


Duck Dynasty star Jase Robertson was kicked out of New York City’s Trump International Hotel after a staff member apparently thought he was homeless. Robertson laughed it off and said he was the victim of “facial profiling.”

Robertson and other members of his family were in New York City promoting the fourth season of their hit A&E reality show. The network put the family up in the swanky hotel across from Central Park.duck

Apparently one Trump International Hotel staff member was not accustomed to seeing a fully bearded guest wearing camouflage pants.

“I asked them where the bathroom was and he said, ‘Right this way, sir,’” Robertson told the hosts of the television show ‘Live with Kelly and Michael.’ “He said, ‘Right this way, sir.’ He walked me outside, pointed down the road and said, ‘Good luck.’”

The hosts appeared stunned by the story – but Robertson smiled and said he took it in stride.

“I think it was a facial profiling deal,” he said.

Robertson’s brother, Al, told Fox News the family is getting a good laugh out of the case of mistaken identity.

“He assumed Jase was some homeless guy,” he said. “This is not our first rodeo — which is another reason I stay beardless.”

Ironically, it’s not the first time the men of the Louisiana family have been mistaken for homeless people.

“One time, we were in New York City and people put money in Willie’s coffee cup,” he said. “Dad was speaking at a church once and one of the members showed him where the homeless shelter was.”

The Robertsons said they were “absolutely not offended” by the incident and said they love staying at Trump Hotel.

“We were laughing — wait until the Donald hears about this,” he said.

And for what it’s worth, they hope the staff member doesn’t get in trouble.

“He was just as nice as he could be — escorting Jase to the park,” Al said. “And honestly, if I was in his shoes — I’d have done the same thing.”

I love Jase!

I'm sure he got a huge kick out of the asinine assumptions made by one of Trump's employees.

No doubt all employees are trained to weed out the unworthy.

Hilarious.

I don't watch this show. Reality tv doesn't do it for me. I can't stand competitions. Makes me feel things I don't like to feel. 

Not to break out my bleeding heart liberal violin, but this is how the homeless are treated under the best of circumstances.

This is nothing to do with competitions.  This is  family that created an empire from nothing.

It's not a reality show with some kind of competition? 

Hmm. I'm still not into straight up reality shows. Except Sister Wives. That shit was fascinating.

No.


It is about a family that created a multi-million dollar company from scratch.  They started a company that created duck calls and it exploded over the last 40 years.  They are incredibly wealthy from it.  And they all still work hard for the business.
