Duck Dynasty’s Korie Robertson claims that she and her family were targeted by white supremacists over their adopted biracial son.

Korie Robertson and her husband, Willie Robertson, adopted their son Will when he was just five weeks old. They have become proponents of adoption and previously told People magazine that their son being biracial hasn’t come up in the way they raise him, only in how the public looks at them.

“Here’s the thing: when we look at him, we don’t see an adopted kid. It doesn’t even cross our minds,” Willie Robertson told People magazine.

“He’s as much ours as our biological children.”

Korie Robertson has become an outspoken voice for racial healing in the US.

She first made a name for herself on the topic of race relations after an emotional interview with CNN in which she called for President Donald Trump to call out white supremacists in the wake of the Charlottesville protests.

Korie Robertson furthered this narrative while speaking to CBN News where she revealed that, as her family’s star rose, so too did the danger from racism.

 “When our family hit mainstream and all the sudden all of America’s watching, they noticed our son’s biracial and we got comments and we got hate and negativity and we were actually targeted by white supremacists at one point. So it’s just shocking and scary and sad to know that that still exists in our country.”

A source told the National Enquirer  that Willie and Korie Robertson are headed in different directions.

Korie Robertson, 40, reportedly wants to move to Los Angeles where she can turn her four kids into stars, while her husband wants to stay in backwoods Louisiana and may want to kick off a career in politics, the source said.

Korie is also said to believe that their 16-year-old daughter Sadie will find it easier to expand her budding modeling career in Los Angeles.

Although Willie denied this summer that he planned to go into politics, “Willie got a taste of the big political arena when he attended the president’s recent State of the Union Address as a guest of Louisiana Rep. Vance McAllister,” said the source.

Willie and Korie Robertson, who have their own fortunes and also own a slice of the family’s  lucrative duck call business empire, would suddenly find  an estimated $30 million in play if they land in divorce  court, according to an insider.

Duck Dynasty ‘s Korie Robertson and and her mother Chrys Howard will share the family wisdom with the coming release of Faith Commander: Living Five Values from the Parables of Jesus, a five-week church curriculum.

The book and DVD set will be released this coming May.

The set is targeted to adults and children of all ages, as the curriculum mainly focuses on five themes found in the parables of Jesus. Those themes are as follows: faith, forgiveness, obedience, prayer and kindness, according to a press release from Christian book publisher Zondervan.

Korie Robertson said that Faith Commander takes common themes depicted on Duck Dynasty and shows how those motifs operate within the famed reality show family. Considering the Robertsons’ close-knit nature, she said that their faith is key to keeping everyone together.

Faith Commander was written by Korie Robertson and her mother Chrys Howard and will be released this coming May

“This faith is behind who we are as a family and what keeps us together and strong,” Korie Robertson said.

Chrys Howard added that she believes the parables of Jesus aren’t always studied as they should be, claiming that the book and DVD set will include stories from the Robertson clan intended to help churches explain the parables to their congregations.

“We really believe that this is going to benefit the entire church family – kids, adults, and teens,” Chrys Howard said.

“It’s something families can all study together just like they watch the TV show together.”

Faith Commander studies for adults and teens will be available May 6 and the church-wide curriculum will be on sale May 20. The full church kit will include books, discussions guides, DVDs and other resources for adults and teens alike.

Duck Dynasty’s Korie Robertson and her foster daughter Rebecca recently launched a clothing boutique together called Duck & Dressing.

The interview with Duck Dynasty’s Willie and Korie Robertson on Fox News Channel appears to have given a welcome jolt to the network’s New Year’s Eve coverage.

All-American New Year’s Eve on Tuesday put Fox News ahead of CNN’s rival New Year’s Eve Live in total viewers, in the period from 11 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.

This included Bill Hemmer and Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s interview with Willie and Korie Robertson, which helped FNC gain considerable boosts over the previous year.

The special aired from 9 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. and averaged 1.7 million total viewers, compared to the 1.4 million that the CNN offering, co-hosted by Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin, averaged.

In the key news demo, however, CNN’s New Year’s Eve offering still came out on top, averaging 584,000 viewers to the 329,000 that Fox’s offering averaged.

The 11 p.m. to midnight period that included Willie and Korie Robertson’s interview, meanwhile, averaged 1.97 million total viewers, compared to CNN’s 1.73 million.

Again, CNN won the demo in that time period, averaging 742,000 viewers 25-54 compared to 401,000 for Fox.

In the demo, All-American New Year’s Eve averaged 413,000 total viewers during that time period, a 19% boost over the previous year.

Even so, CNN bested Fox in that time period, averaging 2.095 million total viewers and 906,000 in the demo – though those numbers were down 11% and 4%, respectively, from the previous year.

“We’re ready to move on, you know. I think we all learned a lot and we’re just ready to move on, and the family’s happy, and we’re ready to go. I’ve got to make sure my guys are back there building duck calls.”

Asked her thoughts on the suspension by Hasselbeck, Korie Robertson took the same conciliatory tone.

“Hey, I’m just glad the family’s all together, the best thing about the show is we get to do it as a family,” she said.

“We’re all happy, happy, happy.”
