With a firestorm of outrage over  "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson and subsequent suspension from A&E, how will things play out in the business world.  Will Robertson's "controversial" comments offend advertisers and drive away viewers?

According to TMZ, at least of the show's sponsors says they are proud to stand with Phil:

If "Duck Dynasty" network A&E feared advertisers would scatter like waterfowl after a shotgun blast because of Phil Robertson's anti-gay comments ... it's not happening.

A company called Skyjacker -- which builds truck suspensions -- tells us it stands solidly behind Phil and the show ... saying it's a matter of God and country -- it's a free country and Phil has a right to his opinions.

Company brass tells us it goes beyond the Constitution ... to the Creator:  "We are a Christian- based company and actively share our faith so standing with Phil Robertson is an easy choice for us."
