The crew of A&E’s hit show “Duck Dynasty” has been on a media tour in New York City this week ahead of the Wednesday-night premiere of their show. And while it’s hard to believe that some across the country can’t pick out the bearded brothers of the Robertson clan from a mile away, Jase Robertson revealed that he was kicked out of a hotel in the city this week after being confused for a homeless man.
“I think it was a facial profiling deal,” Jase joked while describing the incident on “Live with Kelly and Michael.”
“I asked where the bathroom was and he said, ‘Right this way, sir.’ He was very nice,” Jase told a disbelieving Michael Strahan. “He walked me outside, pointed down the road, and said, ‘Good luck. Have a good day.'”
“He just didn’t know,” Jase said graciously, indicating they still stayed at the hotel.
