According to newly released data from Nielsen ratings, the album Duck The Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas, sold 132,000 units during the week of December 22, which was a 22% increase from its sales the week before, and nearly twice the amount it sold during its first week on shelves in late October.
A&E had announced on December 18 that it was suspending Robertson indefinitely from the show after an explosive interview with GQ in which he likened homosexuality to bestiality and dismissed claims of racism in the Jim Crow Era South as exaggerated.
The publisher of Robertson’s book, Happy, Happy, Happy, is also standing by him, as Radar has reported, and the book is currently at #1 in several categories on Amazon.com.
