NYC Hotel kicks out ‘Duck Dynasty’ star after confusing him for homeless man

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK, N.Y. -

CBS News is reporting a New York City hotel kicked out one of the stars of "Ducky Dynasty" after an employee thought he was a homeless man.

Wednesday morning Jase Robertson appeared with his family on "Live with Kelly and Michael" where he described what happened.

"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 he didn't believe the hotel employee knew 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 reportedly took the incident in stride and didn't blame the employee for the incident. Robertson continued to stay at the hotel despite the incident.

He and his family were in New York  doing a media tour for Wednesday night's Season 4 premiere of "Duck Dynasty" on A&E. The season premiere was watched by 11.8 million viewers, making it the most-watched nonfiction series telecast in the history of cable television.

The Robertsons operate their multi-million dollar Duck Commander business from West Monroe, La.
