DUCK THE PAIN AWAY

Following Duck Dynasty quack/soldier for Christ Phil Robertson’s homophobic comments in GQ, show creator Scott Gurney’s ties to The Fluffer, a little-seen gay gem from 2001, came to light.

Gurney starred as a gay-for-pay porn star and meth addict who comes under the obsessive gaze of a male film student turned the titular on-set “fluffer.” For those who may not be aware, a fluffer has the (un)enviable job of “prepping” the porn star before a scene. It’s a dirty job but somebody’s got to do it. Preferably somebody without a gag reflex.

During high school, I remember hoarding this DVD from Blockbuster when that was still around and I was still relatively in the closet. Oh, the early ’00s. Robertson’s comments thus take on a hilariously ironic twist when you realize his boss was contributing to the sin of America’s youths. Namely, me:

You have to ask yourself, why this interview happened and why it ever became public. Someone from A&E was there and was aware of the kind of answers Phil was giving.But despite that, they didn’t ever try to stop it or control it. Instead, they let it hit the headlines and then released a statement condemning it. It is our belief that they knew what was going to happen and then used the situation to exercise control over Phil. It is our understanding that when the TV executives came up with the concept for the show they wanted it to be a case of people laughing at a bunch of backward rednecks. But when it didn’t turn out like that and people actually started identifying with the way the family behaved and were laughing with them, not at them, they became uncomfortable. It did not sit will with the New York TV types.”

Those damn fancy liberal New York TV types. Robertson had previously lamented to the New York Post how hard “them gays” must make life in New York. And over the weekend, Robertson defended his controversial remarks, saying he “will not give or back down” from his path. But maybe he should take a bit of his own advice:

Because, seriously, if Charlie Sheen thinks you need to reign it in, it’s time to reconsider your life choices.
