"Duck Dynasty" star Jase Robertson was kicked out of a New York City hotel after he was confused for being a homeless man. Robertson, along with the rest of his family, was in the Big Apple promoting the fourth season of their reality show, the Daily News reports.
Robertson appeared on "Live! With Kelly and Michael" to dish about their hit show and their stay in the city when he jokingly said he was the victim of being "facially profiled" after a hotel employee didn't believe has was a guest at the hotel and kicked him out.
"The first thing that happened to me at the hotel was I got escorted out," he said calling it a "facial-profiling deal."
"I asked where the bathroom was and he said, 'Right this way, sir.' He was very nice, he walked me outside, pointed down the road and said, 'Good luck,'" he continued. "So I circled back around and my wife said, 'What happened?' and I just said I just got kicked out."
The bearded millionaire said that despite the incident he and his wife continued to stay at the hotel.
"He didn't know," he said of the employee.
The fourth season of A&E's show drew in a staggering 11.8 million viewers when the new season premiered on Wednesday making it the most-watched nonfiction show in history of cable television, the New York Times reports.
"Duck Dynasty" focuses on the Robertson family and their duck calling company, Duck commander which makes duck calls for hunters.
"The Robertsons represent a lot of things we as Americans cherish," said David McKillop, the general manager and executive vice president of the A&E network: "Self-made wealth, independence, three generations live together."
The premiere of season four introduced a new character to the show, Beardless Robertson Male as he ministered the wedding of Phil and his wife Kay, who married 48 years ago by justice of the peace.
