In an interview with Sports Spectrum earlier this year that’s only recently gone viral, Phil Robertson admitted that fake bleeps were inserted into the show even though there was no cursing happening.
"The inserted fake bleeps … like somebody had used profanity, but no one had used profanity,” Robertson said. "I ask those guys that produce the show … ‘What’s the point of the fake bleeps?’”
Robertson admitted that there are up to 20 editors who are "arranging the scenes” on the show so they might think that’s where cursing likely happened.
"Of course these people probably thought that there was some profanity going on which there was zero,” Robertson stated. "If we’re not using profanity, why make it look like we’re using profanity? What is the point? Why don’t you just run it and say what we say?”
Robertson also said that the name Jesus has been cut out during the family’s prayer scene at the end of the show.
