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.
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."
Gee, just how Oprah would have reacted.
I think we KNOW how Oprah would have reacted. In fact we know how she DID react.
Gee, profiling at its best
Yet whites can handle it with class, maturity and humor
I demand to know: Where are the Just-Us Brothers!?
An open and shut case of Creepy A$$ Cracker discrimination.
LOL, glass half full..
I wonder how he managed to keep a straight face.
I demand that the DOJ investigate.
Apparently he knows Jase.
Very gracious... not thin skinned like the President and most libs...
Yeah, Alan is Jas’ older brother
and a preacher and is clean shaven
ans wears suits
The Duck Of Justice?
I’m glad for a happy ending. My only question is that if Jase had stayed there before, might he not know where the mens’ room is?
Where did Jase say that he had stayedvin the hotel before?
Oh Opera, take a lesson here. How to handle minor life issues without taking offense.
People in New York need to get out more.
Where the heck is the NAABP? (Nat’l Assn for the Advancement of Bearded People). We need one of those in this country.
