Under Armour pledges continued support of ‘Duck Dynasty’

Under Armour, the biggest sponsor of A&E’s “Duck Dynasty,” has issued a statement to TMZ pledging support for the television show. “We have no plans to change our current relationship,” the statement reads. “We are obviously aware of the situation. And his comments are not indicative of Under Armour’s views.”

So, Under Armour doesn’t share the views of “Duck Dynasty’s” Phil Robertson, but they’ll continue to sponsor the show nonetheless. Fair enough.

No word on Twitter of a boycott drive yet. I looks like Under Armour has a thicker skin than usual for a sponsor.

Update: Here comes the boycott talk:
