HBO Producer Thinks Robertson Should Be Shot at by Gay People on TV

Doug Ellin, the creator of HBO’s hit show Entourage, showed his displeasure with comments made by Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson by saying the show would be better if gay people shot at Robertson.

Later, Ellin said Robertson could make up for his controversial remarks by “hunting” down a Texas man charged with federal hate crimes for a recent “knockout” attack.
