NYC Hotel Kicks Out ‘Duck Dynasty’ Star After Confusing Him For Homeless ManPosted: August 15, 2013
WEST MONROE, La. (CBS Houston) — A New York City hotel kicks out one of the stars of “Duck Dynasty” after an employee thought he was a homeless man.
Appearing along with his family on “Live with Kelly and Michael” Wednesday morning, Jase Robertson described the incident.
“The first thing that happened to me at the hotel was I got escorted out,” Robertson said, joking that it was a “facial-profiling deal.”
Robertson said that the hotel employee simply didn’t know who he was.
“I asked where the bathroom was and he said, ‘Right this way, sir.’ He was very nice,” Robertson explained. “He walked me outside, pointed down the road and said, ‘Good luck.’”
Robertson continued, “So I circled back around and my wife said, ‘What happened?’ and I just said I just got kicked out.”
Robertson took it in stride and didn’t blame the employee for the incident. Robertson continued to stay at the hotel despite the incident.
The Robertson family was in New York this week doing a media tour for Wednesday night’s Season 4 premiere of “Duck Dynasty” on A&E. The season premiere was watched by 11.8 million viewers, making it the most-watched nonfiction series telecast in the history of cable television.
The Robertsons operate their multi-million dollar Duck Commander business from West Monroe, La.
