NYC Hotel Kicks Out ‘Duck Dynasty’ Star After Confusing Him For Homeless Man.

A New York City hotel kicks out one of the stars of “Duck Dynasty” after an employee thought he was a homeless man. Appearing along with his family on “Live with Kelly and Michael” Wednesday morning, Jase Robertson described the incident.

“The first thing that happened to me at the hotel was I got escorted out,” Robertson said, joking that it was a “facial-profiling deal.” Robertson said that the hotel employee simply didn't know who he was. “I asked where the bathroom was and he said, ‘Right this way, sir.’ He was very nice,” Robertson explained. “He walked me outside, pointed down the road and said, ‘Good luck.’”

Robertson continued, “So I circled back around and my wife said, ‘What happened?’ and I just said I just got kicked out.”

Robertson took it in stride and didn’t blame the employee for the incident. Robertson continued to stay at the hotel.

He should blame the employee for the incident. Is that how you would like YOUR employees to behave?

I wouldn't be surprised if that [i]is[/i] what they tell they their employees to do with "homeless" people who come in off the street looking to use the bathroom.

Surely they could be instructed to ask "Are you a guest of our hotel?" and if needed "Do you have your room key with you?"

One would think. It's so hard to get good help these days.

I'll bet that guy actually gets a big tip at the end of the stay. Robertson seemed to think the whole thing was pretty funny and will probably be telling that story for a long time.

It's good PR. Money in the bank.
