Duck Commander Willie Robertson and his wife, Korie, have just begun a new show on social media titled, At Home with The Robertsons. The show premiered on Facebook Watch, CBN News reports.
At Home with The Robertsons will be a talk show where the couple will talk about the day’s issues and whatever else comes up with celebrities in the Robertsons’ home.
In a Facebook post, the pair explained, “Willie & Korie Robertson invite celebrity guests into their Louisiana home for a day of southern hospitality, compelling and honest conversations, and fun-filled outdoor adventures, all served with a dose of Robertson-style humor coming April 5th, only on Facebook Watch.”
They released the premiere at 12 pm on Monday, titled “Should You Talk To Your Black Son About The Police,” and it featured hip hop artist Yancy and his wife, Mendeecees. The topics were racism and “raising a black son in America.”
Further, Willie’s son Will explains what it’s like growing up as a Black kid in a White family. The description reads, “On the premiere episode of At Home with the Robertsons, Willie & Korie invite Love and Hip Hop’s Yandy and Mendeecees Harris to discuss racism and raising a black son in America. Plus, Will, Willie and Korie’s bi-racial son, shares his experiences growing up in a white family.”
Duck Dynasty was a show with conservative hosts that made headlines when the cast members were outspoken about their strongly-held Christian beliefs and conservative politics. The show was nearly canceled and boycotted, but enough Christians stood behind the show that it remained on the air.
So far, the first episode of At Home with The Robertsons has gained more than 951,000 views on Facebook Watch. The comments section on the video is also flooded with largely positive reviews. The show ran for 19 minutes and 35 seconds. The show’s Facebook page has 2.9 million followers, and new episodes will come out Mondays and Thursdays.
