Did you know that Facebook will suspend an administrator if their Facebook page is too popular? I didn’t. But they do, at least in the case of the Facebook page set up to support Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson.

As of Thursday afternoon, over 570,000 thousand people have “liked” the “Boycott A&E Until Phil Robertson Is Put Back On Duck Dynasty” Facebook page.

“This page is to show support for the freedom of speech of Americans. Unless Phil is reinstated to the show, we refuse to watch the A&E Channel!” the page states.

The page exploded when it was launched Wednesday, breaking over 200,000 likes in less than six hours. The administrator was even banned from Facebook for 12 hours because the page was generating 4,500 likes in one hour.

“The administrator of this page was banned for next 12 hours because this page generated 4.5K likes in ‘1 hour.’ People you are getting the word out! Continue to spread that we will boycott A&E until Phil Robertson is put back Duck Dynasty,” the page states.

Thousands were voicing their support on the page.

Here’s the page. Its popularity is now greater than A&E’s own page.

Bryan Preston has been a leading conservative blogger and opinionator since founding his first blog in 2001. Bryan is a military veteran, worked for NASA, was a founding blogger and producer at Hot Air, was producer of the Laura Ingraham Show and, most recently before joining PJM, was Communications Director of the Republican Party of Texas.

Look, A&E would never have had an issue with this guy if he had just followed up his comments by claiming he was a Muslim.

I SO hope the Duck Dynasty guys take up Glenn Beck on his offer. What a power-house that would create. I'd be pleased as punch to begin watching DD on TheBlaze without all the homosexuality commercials on gAy&E.
