Daily Wrap of All Things for Dec. 19: Phil Robertson, Target, Adele, and Warren Buffett

By Samantha Ravenscroft,

Here’s our daily wrap for Thursday, Dec. 19:

Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson has been suspended by A&E from filming following his comments on homosexuality being a sin. Robertson interviewed with GQ where he said “homosexual offenders” will not “inherit the kingdom of God.” A&E has come out and said they do not agree with Robertson’s comments. A&E may not support Robertson but Sarah Palin surely does. The Alaska governor posted a photo of herself with the cast to her Facebook page.

Target has had a data breach that could affect consumers that purchased items at Target between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15. This breach affects about 40 million customers who used credit or debit cards in that time frame. A forensics firm as well as the Secret Service are investigating the breach. The company is asking anyone that suspects illegal activity on their card to call 866-852-8680.

Adele accepted a MBE medal from Prince Charles and Buckingham Palace on Thursday. MBE stands for Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. The singer received the award for her "services to music.”

Warren Buffett made $37 million per day in 2013. His is one of the richest men in the U.S. Buffet’s total net worth is now an estimated $59.1 billion. Bill Gates still holds the No. 1 spot for richest man in the world.
