Just days after Oprah revealed how she got the "Pretty Woman" cold-shoulder treatment from a snooty employee at a Swiss boutique, another moneybags star has ended up on the wrong side of a quick-to-judge staffer. During a sit-down this week on "Live With Kelly and Michael," the hirsute men of "Duck Dynasty" discussed the inherent difficulties of looking like camouflage-loving ZZ Top impersonators in New York.
"The first thing that happened to me at the hotel is I got escorted out," Jase Robertson revealed to Michael Strahan and guest host Maria Menounos as the clan promoted the new season of their A&E show. "I think it was a facial profiling deal."
Seems the bearded reality star made the mistake of asking a hotel worker where to find a bathroom, and that staffer figured he was an unsavory element who'd wandered in off the street.
Now what I found interesting was the comments from others-
Couldn't have said it any better-
Wait a minute? Where is all the outrage? Where are all the looters and protesters? If he were black this would be 24 hours of national news and Jesse Jackson for sure would have flown in to, uh, um, "help".
Funny how a when a very rich and important black TV star spoke about a rude and stupid employee, the press considered a it racial and Jase considers it just someone who didn't know any better. Splain that to me.
love how he handled the situation way better than the way Oprah handled hers. He's a classy guy after all....I think he should be called "Pretty Good Man"
Hopefully the NAACP will petition Holder to file an investigation into possible Civil Rights violations...
"If I had a son, he'd look like Jase Robertson..."
