Bearded 'Duck Dynasty' star says he was victim of 'facialprofiling'
"Duck Dynasty" stars are known for their beards, but apparently not in New York City! Jase Robertson recently revealed during a "Live! With Kelly and Michael" interview that he fell victim to what he calls "facial profiling."
The bearded A&E star admitted he had been kicked out of the hotel he was staying at in New York after being mistaken for a homeless man.
"The first thing that happened to me at the hotel was I got escorted out," Robertson said. "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.'"
The reality star clearly took the misunderstanding in good humor, adding: "So I circled back around and my wife said, 'What happened?' and I just said I just got kicked out."
Little did the hotel employee know Jase's show, "Duck Dynasty," scored almost 12 million viewers during it's season four premiere, making it the most-watched nonfiction show in the history of cable television.
