Douglas County Sheriff Phil Miller says he’s cutting ties with the A&E network in response to the suspension of “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson.

Robertson, the family’s patriarch, was suspended last week for comments he made to GQ magazine about gays. Miller told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Sunday that the sheriff’s department will no longer work with the network – which has filmed portions of “Beyond Scared Straight” in the Douglas County Jail.

Miller says his response to Robertson’s suspension is a statement about a man expressing his Christian beliefs, and not one about homosexuality.

“Duck Dynasty” is filmed in Louisiana, and the state’s lieutenant governor has offered to connect the Robertson family with new producers if they cannot reach agreement with the A&E network.
