‘Duck Dynasty’ star Jase Robertson kicked out of hotel for “facial profiling”

Duck Dynasty family pictureThe bearded faces and camo garb of the Robertson men make the stars of A&E’s ‘Duck Dynasty‘ easily identifiable. But one New York City hotel staffer apparently still didn’t recognize Jase — and tried to kick him out.

The Robertson men appeared on ‘LIVE with Kelly and Michael‘ on Wednesday morning, where they explained to hosts Michael Strahan and Maria Menounos how Jase had been mistaken for a homeless man while trying to use a hotel bathroom.

“You know the first thing that happened to me at the hotel is I got escorted out,” Jase said on the show.

“Why?!” the incredulous hosts asked.

“I think it was a facial profiling deal,” he responded.

“I asked where the bathroom was and he said, ‘Right this way, sir,'” Jase added. “He was very nice. He walked outside, he pointed down the road and said, ‘Good luck. Have a good day.'”

The TV star then explained that he had to tell his wife that he had been kicked out. But Jase cut the hotel staffer a break, explaining that the man just simply didn’t know.

Strahan and Menounos also asked Willie Robertson about the possibility of running for Congress. Republicans have reportedly been trying to enlist the star to run for retiring Rep. Rodney Alexander’s (R-La.) seat. Willie jokingly acknowledged that he had “just heard” that he was running for Congress and “just read” that he was leading in the polls. The hosts of the show suggested that Willie could even run for president.

“No, no,” Willie responded as the audience clapped loudly. “Heck no. I think Phil should run for president.”

“Oh boy,” Phil joked. “You think the country’s in trouble now.”
