GLAAD released a statement tonight following the news that A+E caved and reinstated Phil Robertson.
They’re not taking the news so well.
Via the Hollywood Reporter:

GLAAD issued its own reaction to Robertson’s reinstatement: “Phil Robertson should look African American and gay people in the eyes and hear about the hurtful impact of praising Jim Crow laws and comparing gay people to terrorists. If dialogue with Phil is not part of next steps then A+E has chosen profits over African American and gay people – especially its employees and viewers.”
