Millions of people tune in to watch the Robertson family on A&E’s Duck Dynasty, but apparently someone working at the hotel where they were staying was not one them. While appearing on Live! With Kelly and Michael, Jase Robertson explained how he was kicked out of the New York City hotel the family is staying at.
During the interview with Michael Strahan and Maria Menounos, who was in for Kelly Ripa, Jase said that a hotel staffer kicked him out because he thought he was a homeless man.
“The first thing that happened to me at the hotel was I got escorted out,” Jase recalled, reports the New York Daily News. He called it a “facial-profiling deal,” since he has a long beard, like the other members of the family.
“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,’” Jase explain, adding that the employee just didn’t recognize him as the star of a famous reality show. “So I circled back around and my wife said, 'What happened?' and I just said I just got kicked out.”
Robertson decided to stay at the hotel and took no offense.

The show’s fourth season kicked off on Wednesday night with a record 11.8 million viewers tuning in. It was the most-watched broadcast of an unscripted non-fiction show in cable television history.
