BATON ROUGE - Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal released a statement Thursday defending Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson in the wake of his removal from the show.

In the statement, Gov. Jindal says he remembers when television networks believed in the first amendment. He says that he finds some of what he sees on television offensive but believes everyone is entitled to their own opinion. "It is a messed up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended," the statement concludes.

A&E placed Robertson on indefinte suspension following the release of controversial comments he made to GQ Magazine.In the interview, Robertson gives his thoughts on an array of issues, including homosexuality.

"But hey, sin: It's not logical, my man. It's just not logical," Robertson told the magazine. Robertson talks in detail about sex with a woman compared to what he assumes sex is like with a man.

The TV show follows the cast of characters in north Louisiana who make a living building duck calls.The rest of the family is expected to continue the show.
