Walmart is selling out "Duck Dynasty" gear as fans flock to show their support of Phil Robertson and the show following the patriarch's recent comments about homosexuality, the Daily Mail reports. While Forbes estimates that the Robertson family's empire is worth about $400 million, Walmart sales make up about half of that.
Even as reports surface that the family is "very serious" about ending the show, fans are apparently doing more than just voicing their support on various social media websites.
"Walmarts sells a huge array of Duck Dynasty merchandise- from T-shirts to camo bedding, posters, watches, toy trucks, camo chairs, clothing, jewellery and even bottle openers," the Daily Mail reports.
A Walmart spokeswoman declined to comment on the matter.
A source also told the publication that an A&E publicist accompanied Robertson to the GQ interview, but wasn't around when he questioned why a man would choose another man's "anus" over a woman's "vagina." It's not clear why that's relevant as Robertson is not the kind of censor himself.

"That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical," he said in the interview.
